One such moment was watching this beautiful movie Koozhangal, which marks the directorial debut of P.S Vinothraj. The film’s premise is as simple as the title but created an exquisitely loveable impact within.”
“Koozhangal didn’t steal our attention for a spellbinding performance of new actors and technical crew but stirred our souls with the adorable background score by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Such an experience instantly instilled in us the excitement to not just present the film theatrically, but also take it to international film festivals and take over the entire production as well. We are proud to present this film for you in the hope that it will make an impact on you as well,” he added.
