For debutant director Vinothraj PS, it is a surreal moment to have his first film “Koozhangal” represent India at the 94th Academy Awards next year.
The Tamil-language drama follows an alcoholic abusive husband who, after his long-suffering wife runs off, sets out with his young son to find her and bring her back.
The film is set in a village called Arittapatti near Melur and the director started filming in the scorching heat of May 2019.
