A film with backdrop of palm leaf manuscript 20.4.2019

Kallathanam, directed by Dhandapani, a short filmmaker who is making his debut in the silver screen, is a film revolving around a treasure hunt. The clues to get the fortune are inscribed on palm leaf manuscripts. Debutant Yugan plays the lead hero and Swapna from Malayalam and Nagina are the female leads. A bunch of Koothu-p-pattarai talents have also been roped in.

“The hero who holds a degree in agriculture helps the farmers in his village in improving farming.  He is at loggerheads with the villain who is into illegal sand mining.
