Priyadarshan directorial Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham is one of the most awaited films of Mollywood. The film stars superstar Mohanlal in the lead role.
The film is not just one of the most expensive Malayalam films ever made, but it uses the kind of computer graphics for scenes on the water that has never been seen in Indian cinema before.
In an interview with a leading daily, Priyadarshan talked about the graphics and the process of the film. He said, “Writing software for water is a most complicated thing and a film on Kunjali Marakkar cannot be made without having sequences of war on the sea.”
He further added, “My son, Siddharth, is in charge of the graphics for the film; he is the visual producer. He (Siddharth) had told me that it would be a time-consuming process. I didn't mind that. Very few companies, in countries like Austria and Hungary, have such software.”
“The success of a film like this would depend largely on the graphics. If you don't get your graphics right, the film will look terrible, which we have seen often in Indian cinema. For Marakkar, I was convinced that we needed to spend money on the graphics,” he said.
