Oscar winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty will soon be making his acting debut in the movie Oru Kadhai Sollattuma.
Interestingly, he will be playing a sound engineer in the movie who takes up the tedious task of recording all the sounds in the famous Thrissur Pooram festival.
Directed by Prasad Prabhakaran, the film is bankrolled by Rajeeb Panakkal under the banner Palm Stone Multimedia. A press statement reads: “I can proudly say this is a never before attempted concept. Pooram festival in Thrissur is the biggest festival in the Universe, attended by a million people every year. This festival runs for a week. There are thousands of artists playing hundreds of instruments in the event, and the atmosphere will be absolutely electric and totally magical. It has been Resul Pookutty’s real-life dream to record the sounds of Pooram live. This movie is about a sound designer who wants to capture the sounds of this festival in his mike and record it. To our delight and honour, Resul Pookutty plays this sound designer role.”
According to the director, about 80 technicians from various film industries including Hollywood and Bollywood have worked on the project to record the sounds at the Thrissur Pooram festival. Further, 22 cameras were pressed into service to record the performances of about 300 artists in the festival.
Rahul Raj has composed music for this flick with Vairamuthu penning the lyrics. The songs have been recorded already with Sony Music bagging the audio rights. Oru Kadhai Sollatuma will be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi simultaneously. The director is elated over his project materializing and has said that he can’t wait to share the experience with the movie buffs.
