Oscar award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty said it’s been his lifelong dream to record the sounds of Thrissur Pooram live.
Speaking at the audio launch of Oru Kadhai Sollattumaa, Resul said, “I would like to thank my parents now. Director Prasad came and narrated this script to me on February 22nd, a very important day in my life. My life long dream was to record the sounds of Pooram live. Our producer Rajiv Panakal has made me realise my dream. I travelled a lot for this movie. Even the blind can enjoy this movie. I would like to thank director Shankar for having brought me to South Indian cinema through Endhiran.”
Director Shankar said, “Though I have seen only the photos of Pooram festival when Resul explained me the magnitude of the event I was amazed. The Pooram comprises of over a million people, 300 artists and 3 hours of the musical feast. If I had known about Pooram before, I would have shown in ‘Anniyan’. Resul has recorded the sounds of Pooram live. This is a historic event. Not just confined to the studio, Resul makes all the effort to go outside also and record all the sounds and give it to the audience.”
