With the musical composition of Mariya Manohar, the audio launch of this movie had happened recently with the presence of director Bharathiraja and Suresh Kamatchi.
When Director Esaki Kaarvanan shared about the movie, he has stated that, “This is my first film. I have picked this script to direct because I wanted to give an impactful feeling to the audience. The connection with ‘Pettikadai’ and us always becomes from food chain to relationship chain. But I have narrated the fact that how this has been destroyed by the ‘Super Market’ and the ‘Online Market’ trend. This movie will talk about the message which society actually needs.”
When Bharathiraja had given a speech, he said, “‘Pettikadai’ is a symbol of our culture. In our town, we generally refer shops as ‘Pettikadai’. If we tell ‘Pettikadai’ to others, people will make think if we are outdated. But it is not that way actually. We have to follow our culture. We have to talk about it. ‘Pettikadai’ is made to indulge about that.”
Cinematography for this movie is handled by Arul and Srinivas whereas editing is done by Suresh Aras.
Legging into the final schedule of shooting, the team is getting ready to release ‘Pettikadai’ very soon.
