ZEE5 Exclusive Film ‘Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee’ Press Meet

ZEE5 has been unceasingly bestowing the Tamil film buffs with a variety of engrossing movies based on different genres and themes. Following the array of ample exemplifications denoting the success, ZEE5 is all set to unveil its next biggie titled ‘Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee’ on January 21, 2022. The film is written and directed by music director Darbuka Siva. Set against the backdrop of 90s, the story revolves around the lives of High School Students. The press meet and special screening of this film was held yesterday in Chennai. Here are some excerpts from the occasion.

Producer Sameer Bharath said, “We are completely new to the film industry. When we embarked on our journey in production with ‘Uriyadi’, we were responded with good reception. These days, releasing a movie is very tough than producing it. After a certain point of time, I was pushed to the conclusion of producing a movie with leading actors. However, ZEE5 has become a boon to such producers, who have made films based on strong contents. I thank the entire crew of ZEE5 for showing interest in this film. When Darbuka Siva narrated the script for the first time itself, I was very much impressed. As a director, he has materialized what he promised during narration at the right time and right budget. Everyone in the crew has given their best into the show. I am sure the audience will love this film and appreciate us for the same.”

Siju Prabhakaran, Cluster Head ZEE Network, said, “I am immensely happy and proud to be presenting Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee on behalf of ZEE5. I am really excited about releasing this film. I am glad that many talented actors and technicians are getting introduced through this film. Few films make me feel elated and confident while releasing them, and this movie is an ample evidence to it. Everyone has extended their complete efforts into the movie, and I request the friends from press and media to support this movie.”

Kaushik Narasimhan, VP Content, ZEE5 Tamil, “I have been introducing new movies to you all every month, but this time, I am very much excited with Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee. This will be an important movie in the Tamil movie industry. This film will be a reminiscent element for everyone as it will instill nostalgic memories. Personally, this film reflected many moments that happened in my life. The actors in this movie will be called by their character names for they have breathed their heart and soul into this movie. Darbuka Siva has excelled as a writer, director and music director in this film. This will be a cherry-pick for audiences from all walks of life. I request everyone to extend their support towards this film.”

Darbuka Siva said, “I thank producer Sameer sir for giving me complete freedom. During the script writing process, I was very keen on casting new faces, and I owe a lot to the production team for trusting my conviction. The actors were selected only after 3 auditions and a couple of month’s rehearsals. We kick-started the shooting only after this prolonged process. I thank everyone in the team for extending their inmost efforts into the film. The Lockdown was imposed soon after the completion of shooting, and we had lots of issues in bringing the movie to screens. However, now to see the Midas-touch of ZEE5, I am confident that it is going to find a phenomenal reach. I thank ZEE5 for showing interest in this film. I am sure, everyone will like this film, and we are looking forward to a good response from everyone.”
