image The roots of life and the foundation of Cheran’s stories are akin to each other and we get yet another opportunity to see that in his latest creation ‘Pokkisham.’

The story takes place in the 1970s and is the love story of a young man in Kolkata and a literature lady student in Nagore. Cheran is an engineer based in Kolkata and Padmapriya is a student of Tamil literature in Nagore. Apart from the story, lead characters and important figures in the story, sets by Vairabalan have an important place. His talent has brought alive the Kolkata of the 70s.

After ‘Thavamaai Thavamirundhu,’ music composers Sabesh-Murali join hands with Cheran for the third time. They have paid a lot of attention to the background score. There are only 10 more days to go to complete shooting. Yesterday, the audio release took place and Cheran met with the press people.

“From a small village in the Madurai district, I came to Chennai city and my first film was ‘Bharathi Kannamma.’ It was released in 1997. I revel in realistic portrayals of the people and their lives and ‘Pokkisham’ is my ninth film. Our memories that are evergreen are like a treasure house and it is always wonderful to reminisce about them. The single most important memory is of love.

In ‘Pokkisham,’ I talk about lost love. ‘The love that is nurtured by Tamil culture and literature gets weakened and starts disappearing with the onset of so called modern culture. To experience love is a splendoured thing. That seems to have reduced in today’s internet revolution. Love is a ‘Pokkisham’ (treasure) for everyone.
