Director Statement

PUA IYAM is a film that is something close to my heart, a product of pure blood and sweat of each and everyone in my production pool. I have to commend all those who have supported me in my college life - my family, my friends, my mentors who never gave up on me. There are reasons why I should not give up - my goals and my brother (who's in a comatose condition). As soon as he wakes up I would like to give these awards to him. This film says it all how I fought through hard and good times, how I survived college, how I chased dreams, and how I made things possible for me and my production team.
