New Delhi, The academy award winner and noted music composer, A R Rahman has unveiled the first look poster of ‘Maadathy-an unfairy tale’, at the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). The Tamil independent feature film is produced by Karuvachy Films and co-produced by Golden Ratio Films (GRF), a Film Production and Distribution arm of the renowned Singapore-based Media Investment entity Vistas Media Capital (VMC).
The movie poster was launched during its world premiere at the prestigious film festival. The film is a tale about a young girl who grew up in an oppressed caste, the ‘unseeables’ and how she refused to be defined by her birth identity and came to be immortalised as their local deity, Maadathy.
The film reflects on caste, gender, violence, faith that are embedded in the culture and adapts a style that makes it a contemporary fairy tale. Directed by filmmaker Leena Manimekalai, this feature film is a mix of drama and mystery.
Co-Producer Abhayanand Singh said, “It is such a honour for us that Mr AR Rahman unveiled the first look poster of Maadathy at Busan International Film Festival. We are truly delighted that the movie had world premiere screening at this prestigious film festival.
It is a story that has been beautifully captured by Leena that depicts the struggles of an oppressed community. We are looking forward that the story of Maadathy reaches every nook and corner of the country and generates the awareness of the same.’
