Director Bala is one of the biggest brands in Tamil cinema as far as “good cinema” is concerned. Right from his first film Sethu to his last release Avan Ivan, Bala films has got critical as well as commercial success.
His latest Paradesi is set in the 1940’s in a tea plantation in Munnar . It is loosely based on Paul Harris Daniel’s Red Tea which has been translated into Malayalam and Tamil. The film has Atharva and Dhansika in the lead with lovely melodies by GV Prakash.
Those who saw special screenings of the film are raving about it . Noted director Anurag Kashyap who saw the film tweeted: “ Just saw Bala’s Paradesi. Absolutely blown by it. His best yet.” Paradesi is Bala’s fastest film to evolve and was completed in 90 days.
Paradesi is now all set for a release on February 15 worldwide.
