Director Prabhu Solomon says, “Kumki is sort of a dream come true. Initially, my friends dissuaded me from taking the subject. I could have easily done a quickie after Mynaa, but I took time and effort over Kumki, because I had confidence in my content.”
Solomon took nearly 18 months to complete Kumki, because he did everything systematically like allowing hero Vikram Prabhu time to get familiar with the elephant who could only understand Malayalam words! Solomon also waited for the right season to get his visuals to sync with the story. And his combination with D Imman worked because he provided all what the music director asked for.
