The debut Tamil film "Kida" from producer "Sravanthi" Ravikishore has won a prestigious award at the current International Film Festival of India in Goa. Kida received a standing ovation from the audience after its premiere at the Indian Panorama.
Poo Ramu, Kali Venkat, and other actors play vital roles in Kida. A grandfather, his grandson, and a goat are the main characters in the movie. There is also a complex love story. Ravikishore expressed his joy at the unusual appreciation the film has received.
“I first heard a brief narration of Kida from a friend in Chennai. I then listened to the voice note provided by the director. I immediately signed the film and allowed the director to bring his story to life. That’s how the film happened; today, it is now going places. It is the first Tamil film from our banner. Cinema has no language barrier. That’s why I did it in Tamil. We’ll release the film soon,” said Ravi Kishore.
The director RA Venkat said “I feel honored that our film got such a rare recognition. The story is set in a village near Madurai. The three central characters are a grandfather, his grandson, and a goat. The emotions of the trio are the driving force. When it was screened in the Panorama, I felt the younger section wouldn’t connect to it. But they’re the ones who lapped it up and I couldn’t have been happier. I grew up with my grandparents and I drew inspiration from my childhood memories while making the film. I’d like to thank my producer Ravi Kishore garu for his support. I feel honored to have worked with a top man like him so early in my career. He gave me complete freedom. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.”
