Chennai, Dec 28: In the upcoming Tamil dark comedy "Sutta Kadhai", two theatre artists are playing the lead and debutant director Subu says they are his acting consultants.
"Lakshmi Priya and Venky, theatre artists, are of great help with regards to handling the expressions and emotions of other artists (in the film). They are my acting consultants because they help in expressing exactly what I want to communicate with the rest of the cast," Subu told IANS.
Lakshmi Priya and Venky, who work with Chennai-based theatre groups Evam and Stray Factory, respectively, play key roles in the movie.
The film, set in an imaginary hill station, revolves around the mess up created by two cops, played by Balaji and Venky.
"It is set in an imaginary hill station and tracks events leading up to the mess created by two cops. The rest of the story revolves around how these two cops clear the mess with the help of the female protagonist," he said.
Asked if the film is based on the 1990s comic books, Subu said: "It is absolutely not based on any comic book series. The two cops are ardent fans of a comic book author and that character plays an important role in the film".
The film, which has music by Harish Harz and Prashanth -- popularly known by their stage name "Madley Blues", is produced by Ravindar Chandrasekaran under the banner Libra Productions.
