‘Thupparivaalan’ Is Quirky, Says Director Mysskin

Mysskin has said that the Vishal Krishna – Prasanna starrer, Thupparivaalan, is quirky in tone, and quite unique.

“Not many films in the detective genre have been made in Tamil cinema. Thupparivaalan is one such script, which I had in mind for a long time. And when I locked the script, I felt Vishal would be apt for the protagonist’s role — a Sherlock Holmes-type detective. Moreover, Vishal’s physique and height suit the story,” he said.

Prasanna essays a role that is inspired by Dr Watson, Mysskin revealed. “There’s a thin line between getting inspired and plagiarising something. Everyone gets inspired from something or the other. I would say Harichandra inspired Mahatma Gandhi. Likewise, Edgar Allen Poe came up with the first detective story, and then came Sherlock Holmes. My story has nothing related to Sherlock Holmes or other detective movies, though.”


He also talked about the close relationship he shares with his hero, Vishal. “It’s a unique subject and has anecdotes from Subramaniya Bharathi and Mahatma Gandhi.  There is love, friendship and ego. I have never been as close to any of my films’ heroes, like I am with Vishal. We discuss lot of things. We both give our inputs and I am always open to improvisation with him.”
