Gnabagangal based on real life story

Pa. Vijay has decided to face the camera for the first time in Gnabagangal, based on a real life story that happened to Pa. Vijay's very close friend, Kathiravan. Both Kathiravan and Vijay shared a room in Chennai and had dreams of making it big in the film world.

Gnabagangal revolves around Kathiravan, who fell in love with his neighbour Meera. Meera went on to break his heart by getting married to someone else. Following this, he returned home to fall sick and die. The film is a tribute to Kathiravan, who was an unsung hero in Pa. Vijay's eyes.

The story has been written with Kathiravan's diary as a reference point. There is no overdose of glamour, no double-meaning dialogues and no villain in the film. Gnabagangal is directed by Jeevan. The film marks the entry of lyricist Pa. Vijay as hero with Sridevika as heroine.

The music is composed by James Vick and the film is expected to be released this summer.
