There are some tales which could be informed in that area – we checked out Kantara as a Kannada movie as a result of the story was true to the beliefs of the folks in Karnataka. The Malayalam movies we’re doing or Sudha’s movies need to be informed of their respective languages. The scripts demand that. As a movie manufacturing firm and with the success we’ve got had this yr, we really feel extra accountable in giving good cinema to the viewers.

Dhoomam is a time thriller – a race towards time.
