Gautham Menon talks about KDSYN, film with Suriya and online trolls

Gautham Vasudev Menon released a short film titled Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn, a short of sequel to Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaya starring Simbu and Trisha recently.

While the short film has been receiving mixed response from the fans, the buzz has been about the mention of a movie script titled ‘Kamal & Kadambari – A Love Story’ at the end of the short film.

Gautham Menon revealed in a recent interaction that it was indeed a script that was written for actor Suriya. He mentioned that that he has already narrated a line of the script and Suriya has liked it. He said that the script requires a lot of abroad shoot and so it will take to time to materialize due to the current lockdown.

On the short film, he said, “Considering this situation, easy way to make a short film is to portray a phone call conversation between two characters.” “I took that scene and phone called Simbu and Trisha, they immediately accepted to do it”, he said.

Talking about the negative comments and trolls generated by the short film, Gautham said that Simbu predicted the memes based on Trisha treating Simbu as child even before shooting. “Simbu, even before going for shoot, said that definitely a meme on himself laying on Trisha’s lap will surface”, he added.

The filmmaker said, “This film is not a moral science class and I am not saying that people should be this way. These two characters would behave this way. The character Karthik would behave in this way only. I have said one thing towards the end of the film through Karthik’s script in which he will be seen writing that some people, some women, they just don’t go away. That’s the only important thing that concerned me.”

Gautham said further: “This depends on how people perceive it. If one thinks that it is an illegal relationship, it is illegal. But I don’t see it that way. This is Karthik’s genuine and pure way of expressing love and Jessie knows how to handle him and in the meantime she likes him a lot.”

He added: “I never asked people to call their ex girlfriends and talk with them. It all depends on their self control.”
