In the 800-yr history of Tamil Nadu, no matter how many political changes have taken place, there is one particular place, which remains unaffected or influenced by them. This film’s story is based on real-life incidents that happened in that place.
Sharing about the film, director Tamizh Dhayalan says, “GEVI means foothill or ditch. Although mountains and hills are acclaimed for their beauty, not many know about their darker side. Tamil history has witnessed changes in political regimes across the years. However, some things remain unchanged in the mountainous regions. This film, centering on this, will address an important social issue.
When we have a close glance at the life of a common man, we can see how many political changes are taking place. I have personally experienced their pain and pathos. We have created this film with a belief that a change might happen in their lives when their issues are displayed to the public glare.
Sheela Rajkumar plays the role of a villager from the hill region, and Jacqueline also plays the major role. The film is about the challenges and odds faced by them, and how they tackle them has been presented with a gripping narration.
The film was shot in and around the exotic locales of Kodaikanal. We faced a lot of adverse climatic conditions like heavy rainfall, and extreme cold and completed our schedule amidst such challenges. In particular, actress Sheela Rajakumar suffered a lot due to the extremely cold conditions during the night time as her hands and feet got frozen. We had to carry her and walk for more than One Kilometre to give her treatment and revived her health condition. Without taking any rest, she immediately bounced back and started shooting her portions with complete cooperation.
Significantly, the film’s protagonist, actor Aadhavan worked hard with complete dedication for two years, without committing himself to any other project. He would reach the locations before the shooting schedule, adapt the mannerisms and lifestyle routine of the people in that region, and reflect them on his character.”
