'All for Balu Mahendra'

It was in 1979, came Azhiyadha Kolangal by Balu Mahendra. Exactly after 36 years comes a movie titled the same and whatmore it is touted as a tribute to the veteran filmmaker.

The movie is directed by veteran journalist M R Bharathy, who was closely associated with Balu Mahendra for over two decades.Says Bharathy, 'Though I have not worked as his assistant, I interacted with him on many occasions and  always consider him as my guru.

And when I made my directorial debut, I wanted to title the same from one of his films'.And call it my luck to direct veterans like Nasser, Archana and Revathy, who worked in Balu Mahendra's movies before.

And Eswari Rao joining the project as one of the producer has given us the momentum.Deva Sinha, who acted as son of Archana in Veedu is producing the film.'When we approached Archana and said the movie is a dedication to Balu Mahendra sir, she readily agreed to work in it.
