Sci-fi thrillers have always carried the charm of attracting universal
groups not simply for the top-notch technical aspects, but for its
emotional packaging too. Debut filmmaker’s ‘ASARIRI’ featuring Jeevan
in lead role and produced by IB Karthikeyan of Big Print Pictures.

Producer IB Karthikeyan says, “With the emergence of digital
platforms, our present generation is emphasising its focus upon our
epical mythological references in connection to the current
technological panorama. Personally, I have been someone, who
voraciously flips through such topics and filmmaker GK’s script
animated me with high enthusiasms as he kept narrating it. The
absolute question that would strike anyone’s mind while listening to
such Sci-fi scripts is how far the filmmaker would be successful in
translating the script into celluloid version. In that case, GK is an
exception as he had already proved his outstanding skills through the
short film with same title ‘ASARIRI’ that became the cynosure of many
people in the industry. On the other hand, it’s not merely about the
technical bonanzas, but the emotional ingredients the script owns,
which will definitely get ticked in all boxes of becoming an
engrossing entertainer.”

Filmmaker GK says, “ASARIRI is a Sci-Fi thriller crafted with the
pattern of giving a novel-reading experience. It will have the
references of our epical mythological tales, which are ethnically
inherent to our culture and how it’s connected to the present
technological world. More than all, it focalizes on how ‘Science’
creates an emotional struggle among a family. We have tried crafting
keeping rural and urban audiences in mind and are sure that everyone
from kids to elders in will love it; especially the couples will be
able to connect themselves with the film.”

Talking about actor Jeevan who plays the lead role, GK adds, “He has
been too choosy over the scripts and has never been in a hurry. In
fact, we were little doubtful whether he would take up this project.
Being a technology geek himself, he loved the script and instantly
gave a nod. I can assure that it will be completely different from
what he had done so far. We are now on the process of finalizing
others in the cast and crew including heroine.”

While filmmaker GK was already big on fame for winning ‘Radaan Short
Film Contest’ for a Sci-fi movie with same title, he says, “We have
just used the title and this film will have a completely fresh

Since, Sci-Fi movies always have ‘Music’ as one of the major pillars
in enhancing the impact, the team is having talks with top league
music directors and we can expect a bigger announcement on this
shortly in time.  I Maruthanayagam (DOP), a former associate to Nirav
Shah and Saravanan is handling cinematography and Vaira Balan is
taking care of art department. Since the title ‘ASARIRI’ is related to
sound, the film will give a completely new experience on sound
technology to audiences.
