Vijay Vasanth's Achamindri directed by Rajapandi and produced by Vinoth Kumar for Triple V Records is all set to grace theaters on Friday. The film also stars Samuthirakani and Srushti Dange. Achamindri boasts of having two National Award winners behind the scenes: KL Praveen, the editor, and Poornima R, the costume designer. The supporting cast includes Saranya Ponvannan, Radha Ravi, Karunas and Vidya Pradeep.
Wanting to get all the facts right, Rajapandi made sure that his writer did enough research on the core subject of the story. “The movie is not a true story, but it is based on true facts. I read articles and essays, and this particular issue caught my attention. From fees related issues to poor infrastructure in schools in rural areas and smaller towns, there are several problems that need to be addressed. We have tried to address a few such issues in the story,” says the director.
While Vijay Vasanth assures, “The movie takes on the education system, but it is not preachy. There’s a lot of action and thrills."
