The acclaimed filmmaker revealed what he has tried to tell through the film and the elements he used for the narrative. Talking about it, he said, "Natchathiram Nagargiradhu is a story that will discuss about love politically. The film will explore the different layers of love in today's society. Love is love, no matter what. A man liking another man, a woman liking another woman, everything is love here and we cannot degrade those relationships with some random terms. The film will break those stereotypes that exist in our society. We all have been tuned by the mainstream that love can happen only between a man and a woman.
But there is so much politics behind such love stories as well. To what extent can caste influence or affect a love relationship and how are we going to stop all the honour killings that are happening in the society, are some of the topics that the film will talk about. I have treated this story through a theatre artists group. The group has a mix of people from all walks of life, representing all communities, and all of them decide to stage a play about this - love and its multiple layers of politics. They have a very innocent solution to the issues. We have given solutions to those issues only on a calmer and lighter note and it wouldn't be directly on the face"
