Interview: Karthick Naren

Posted on May 30, 2018


Dhuruvangal Padhinaaru and Naragasooran director Karthick Naren talks about learning direction through five films: Prestige, Kannathil Muthamittal, Psycho, The Secret in Their Eyes and Memories of Murder. He speaks about how he creates mood — especially in the Naragasooran trailer. He discusses his writing process, and the themes/morals in his films. Also this question: At this young age, with so little life experience, is imagination enough to write a movie?

He speaks about his strong pre-production process and his “light-hearted film,” Naadaga Medai, and how he’s a serious person. He talks about compromises that come in when stars are involved. And he talks about Part 3 of his thriller trilogy.
