Maanagaram will show Chennai in a different light, says director Lokesh

Even before its release, Maanagaram has caught the attention of Tamil filmgoers, thanks to its intriguing trailer.

Speaking about the film, debutant director Lokesh told IANS, "It's a story about metropolitan dreams in the lives of a few characters. A lot of people from different walks of life come to a metropolitan with dreams, but when reality strikes them they realize life isn't easy."

Unlike other films in this genre, Lokesh says it will showcase Chennai in a different light.

"It was a challenge to showcase Chennai differently. So many films over the years have captured the city in different lights. We had to still show something different.

"We scouted about 300 locations and out of which zeroed in a few locations that haven't been explored so far," he said.

Several celebrities including director Suseenthiran have praised the director and the team for its solid script.

The film starring Sundeep Kishan, Sri and Regina Cassandra is salted to release on March 10.
