Director Karan Johar has a keen eye for good movies and his taste is not restricted to only Bollywood films. The Bombay Velvet star has recently shown quite some interest towards the southern film industry and is all praises for their work. After getting on board with S.S. Rajamouli‘s Baahubali and showing tremendous support, KJo has now opened his heart out about the recently released Tamil children’s film Kaaka Muttai.
After watching the film produced by Raanjhanaa star Dhanush, Karan Johar took to his Twitter account and expressed how much he loved the film. He wrote, “Kaaka Muttai is a gem of a film! Genuinely moved by it…Small film….with a huge heart! Congrats @foxstarhindi @dhanushkraja” To which Dhanush wrote back saying, “@karanjohar @foxstarhindi thank you so much sir 🙂 I’m glad you saw the film and liked it :)”
The multiple National Award winning Tamil film Kaaka Muttai (The Crow’s Egg), coproduced by actor Dhanush has already garnered positive reviews and applauds from all around the globe, and was released on June 5th in India. Kaaka Muttai entered the race as an underdog with not much of a star cast and swept not one but two National Awards at this year’s 62nd National Film Awards ceremony where both child artists of the film, J. Vignesh and Ramesh received Best Child Artist award for their amazing performance in the film. The film also bagged the National Award for Best Children’s Film.
The plot of the film is the ultimate description of cuteness and innocence of childhood, where two young brothers from Chennai living in poor conditions with their mother and grandmother set on their quest for a slice of pizza. Produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films and Vetrimaaran’s Grass Root Film Company, Kaaka Muttai has been presented by Fox Studios. Directed by M. Manikandan, the film had also received standing ovation from the likes of Toronto Film Festival where it premiered on September 2014 and Dubai International Film Festival.
