Director Rajkumar Periasamy’s Rangoon, starring Gautham Karthik, is set to hit the screens on 9th June. Talking about the film, the director says, This film is the survival story of 24-year-old Venkat, whose family has been repatriated from Burma. The story is set against the backdrop of north Madras. The youngster, Venkat, faces a lot of challenges and how he comes out of it forms the crux of the film.
The film is not entirely about the Burmese people in the city, the repatriots are just a part of the film. This will be a complete entertainer as well. On the title and about casting Gautham, he says, The film has been titled Rangoon because that place plays a key role in the plot. As soon as I finished the script, Gautham came to mind considering his age, which will be apt for the role.
The trailer of the film has already been appreciated for being beautifully shot in the never explored before Burma & Gold markets, and the director Rajkumar Periasamy, who has assisted AR Murugadoss in Thuppaki and Kaththi is being showered with a lot of praises. Samuthirakani was quoted saying that the film’s plot revolves around simple men, their lives, problems and pain and these are the people who provide serve the society. Despite earning less, they get more satisfaction out of life
