‘Amma Kanakku’ Is A Must-watch For All Parents & Their Children: Dhanush
Amma Kanakku, which has been produced by Dhanush, is a must-watch for all parents and their children, feels the star actor. The film, which releases in cinemas this Friday (June 24), stars Amala Paul, Revathy and Samuthirakani in important roles
In an interview to Times of India, the actor-producer, who won National Film Awards for bankrolling movies like Kaaka Muttai and Visaranai, has said Amma Kanakku (mother’s calculation) has an important message. “The film has an important message for all parents. This is one of the reasons why I chose to produce this film. I hope it will be received well by the audience. ‘Amma’s kanakku’ will always be right. It will be intervened in every scene, which is why the title. Every father, mother, son and daughter should watch this film, and I am sure it will impress them,” he has said. The film’s director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari had earlier revealed that it was Dhanush who recommended Amala Paul’s name to play the lead role. “I thought Amala would do justice for the role, and that’s why I roped her in. I watched the film and she has performed more than what I expected from her,” Dhanush has said. Talking about veteran actress Revathy, who plays Amala’s mentor in the movie, he has said, “Revathy ma’am is one of the finest performers in Tamil Cinema, and I am glad to have associated with her for this project.” Amma Kanakku is the remake of a Hindi movie titled, Nil Battey Sannata, which too, was helmed by Ashwini. “It’s almost a scene-to-scene remake of the Hindi film. I happened to see the trailer of the film and understood that it’s a good subject, which is why I produced the Tamil version,” the Maari actor has said.
