Movie before marriage, say Tamil film couple


BY M. KRISHNAMOORTHY

KUALA LUMPUR: Movie couple Sandosh Kesavan and V. Komathy are counting the days until they become man and wife. However, film director Sandosh said he would marry his executive producer only after their movie Aandal hits the market. 

They met three years ago when he was the director of entertainment programmes at Astro and Komathy was hosting a musical show on the station’s Vaanavil channel. 

Sandosh, 29, vowed after their engagement last year that he would marry Komathy, 24, when the movie, touted to be the first made-in-Malaysia Tamil VCD film, is screened. 

Sandosh and Komathy working on the set of 'Aandal' in Kuala Lumpur recently. It is expected to be screened before Deepavali next month.

The two produced the 90-minute movie in the Klang Valley over 15 days.  

The lead role is played by THR radio deejay R. Ram, who is supported by H. Nandhini and Unggal Shangkara. 

Sandosh used his savings of about RM150,000 for the film. 

The cast and production crew of just 10 people were not fussy about their payment and the Lotus Family Group of Restaurants sponsored their meals while Hotel Grand Paradise here provided their accommodation. 

Sandosh said Aandal was based on the true story of an estate girl who was forced into drugs and vice by her companion. 

“The plot was narrated to me by a girl who ran away from home with a gangster and ended up in the city as a prostitute. Her boyfriend lived on the earnings of her vice activities,” he said. 

The movie reflected the current social problems of drugs and prostitution among Indians, he added.  

It is expected to be screened before Deepavali next month.
