After the frothy, light-hearted romance 'Meera', and the angaging 'Kurudhi Punal', cinematographer-director P C Sriram ventures into his third directorial effort, 'Vaanam Vasapadum'.

The story is penned by Sujatha with screenplay-dialogue by Lawrence-PC Sriram. The film's technical credits go to Raghavan (set design), Kasi Viswanathan (editing), Brinda (dance choreography), Vikram Dharma (stunt choreography) and cinematography by P C Sriram.

The story centres on the trauma in the life of a newly-wed couple
when the wife becomes a victim of rape. Shot on digital camera, the film's music is composed by the late Mahesh, with background score by Sunderbabu, son of popular Veena exponent Chitty Babu.

Planned for a Tamil New Year release, the film is produced by R K Raghunath-Johnson Jaiprakash for R K Films - and Digital Movie-Makers.A film to look forward to! :P
