SP Jananathan explains ‘Purampokku Engira Pothuvudamai’ title

SP Janananthan explains the reasoning behind the title Purampokku Engira Pothuvudamai which is currently at its final stage of post-production. The film is slated for release on May 1st and the audio launch is likely to be held in a week or two. “Apart from the residential area, ancient Tamils classified unused vast lands for the purpose of public utilities which is called as ‘Purampokku’ lands. They categorized those Purampokku lands nearly into 15 possible social purposes like irrigation, grazing, grave yard, housing etc,” says Jananathan.

“The commonly used areas like roads, bus stands, schools, hospitals are constructed by government in ‘Purampokku’ lands. Similarly the space, sea, land, mountains, air and light are common for all. No one can be called as the master or owner for the nature’s gift.  The title ‘Purampokku Engira Pothuvudamai’ was needed to  stress on the forgotten fact that everything is common for all,” adds SP Jananathan.
