Mani Ratnam must be happy man these days! Even as his untitled revenge drama pitting Dulquer and Karthi against each other is about to kick start, his other release this year, O Kadhal Kanmani, has made him proud in the festival circuit. The light-weight romantic entertainer starring Dulquer and Nithya Menen, which also happened to have an awesome run at the box-office, has now been selected to be screened at the prestigious Busan Film Festival as one of the 52 films in the ‘Window to Asian Cinema’ category. The 10 day annual film festival starting from the 1st of October in Busan, South Korea, is considered to be one of the most popular film festivals in Asia
And this year, director Biju Viswanath’s black comedy ‘Orange Mittai’, which had Vijay Sethupathi playing a borderline paranoid man in his late fifties, has also been selected for screening under the same category. Apart from these, several other Indian films like Mozez Singh’s Zubaan, Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan, Nagesh Kukunoor’s Dhanak, Shahram Ali’s Black Horse Memories, Hansal Mehta’s Aligarh and Hari Viswanath’s Radio Set are also to be screened under various categories, with the festival flashing a stronger Indian flavour this year than usual.
