Chennai: In a first-of-its-kind attempt in Indian cinema, a Persian cat has played the lead role in the upcoming Tamil thriller Meow. It's a tribute to all pet lovers, says the film's director Chinaas Palanisamy.
"The film is about a cat named Selfie, and how at a certain point it decides to take revenge on four bothersome youngsters. The tussle between the cat and the men, who want to save their skins, becomes the fulcrum of the movie," Palanisamy said in a statement.
Admitting there are things one can't train a cat to do, the director said he used computer graphics (CG) for this.
"To make the shots more realistic, our graphic designer Ramesh Acharya has used masterclass CG in 550 shots. The audience will not able to find the difference between the original cat and the graphics-facilitated Cat. The film is a tribute to all pet lovers," he said.
Calling it the perfect comedy thriller for youngsters and family audiences, Palanisamy feels that post the release of Meow, people will develop a special love for cats.
