Chennaiplexes - Part 2

My first Proposal Letter

Enna panradhunnu theriyama muzhichappadhan, Swami Vivekanandar nalla nerathula vandhu help pannaru. Eppadina, swamiji's story onnu irukku,

"Wen he was passing a forest, some monkeys started chasing him and he started running of fear. Thideernu avarukku oru voice (adhan asiriri) keattuchu, "FACE THE BRUTE" (englishla keakkala) appadinu, udane chattunu swamiji thirumbi ninnu, thorathuna monkeys ellathayum morachaaru, monkeys oodi pochu"


This is a simple story but powerful example to face small-big challenges without fear. We use to tel this story to children in samskar varga class. So enakku naane andha storia thirumba சொல்லிகிட்டேன் (even til nw, wen im in trouble), "avanga enna periya *****, yen naama poi permission keatta kudukka maattangala" appidinu oru mind voice vera. So, modhalla, irukkura multiplxoda contacts collect pannen, then silarukku mail pannen, met others in person. So my life's first [project] proposal mail was to inox theatres (vaazhka inox rs.10 tkt) and they were the first to respond. I still hav tat mail in my archives. They asked me to come in person and narrate abt the docu.

Thn it was Mayajaal's turn. went to their office in kodampakkam and got permission. Satyam theatre and sangam theatre personnel dint respond well. Satyamla Thevaye illama, 4 times vara vazhichu, wait panna vechu seriya pesaama, reject pannitaanga. Finala Abirami mega mall. Went ther to meet Mr.Ramanathan. naanga anga pogumpodhu, avaru exit - naanga entry, but avara vazhilaye niruthi brief pannen. He gav his number and told me to talk abt it later. I thought of shooting his interview too as he was The secretary of the Tamilnadu Theatre owner's Association at that time, but wen i called him up, he was too busy to spare time to giv interview.

As my shooting deadline was nearing, avarayum eliminate pannen. Vadapalanila oru multiplex build pannitu irundhaanga, angayum permission vaanga sonnen. Manoj kashtapattu phone number vaangitu vandhan, aana angayum No vacancy, sorry, No permission. So now i had permissions only frm mayajaal and Inox. Adhukku thagundha madhiri, script ready pannen. Mouli and manoj helped me wit the questions to public and officials and also wit the script too. Myself, manoj, mouli and Prem (camera) went wit our equipments(big DV cam, stand, Mic + small handy cam frm Ranga anna) to shoot in Inox. Enna shoot pannomnu adutha postla telren.
