Unveiling a glimpse of “Minmini”, filmmaker Halitha Shameem of critically acclaimed Sillu karuppatti has instantly stolen the spotlights by commuting us into the world of her new creation.
Director Halitha Shameem says, “The journey with Minmini has been heartening as I explored the best emotions while delving into the world of teens. This phase of life as known to all is inclined to purest emotions, mostly found in extremity that might look ambiguous for others outside the zone. Be it the celebrations of success, the joy of love and pain of loss, the adolescents are prone to high doses. This raised myriad questions in me, which indeed propelled to proceed with the crafting of a story with teens as protagonists.”
This time, Halitha prefers a tight-lipped gesture saying, “That’s something audiences will have to experience in theatres rather than me opening up.”
The critically acclaimed filmmaker had kick-started the shooting of ‘Minmini’ even before the commencement of her second directorial outing ‘Sillu Karuppatti’, which was a huge success. Halitha says, “Yes, I started shooting the film soon after the release of my directorial debut ‘Poovarasam Peepee’ in 2014. Few portions of the film demanded the kids to appear as grownups and I had to give a break for the shooting. Now that the kids have grown up, we will be resuming the shoot shortly in time.”
Minmini features child artistes Gaurav Kalai, Pravin Kishore, and Esther Anil (Drishyam and Papanasam fame) in lead roles. Manoj Paramahamsa and Abinandhan Ramanujam, who was associated with Halitha’s Sillukaruppatti as cinematographers are producing this film.
