Chennai: Star Rajinikanth has congratulated director Parthiban and his team for his recently released, critically acclaimed film, ‘Iravin Nizhal’, claimed to be the world’s first non-linear, single-shot film.
In a handwritten letter in Tamil to Parthiban, Rajinikanth wrote: “To Parthiban, who has, through his great effort, shot his ‘Iravin Nizhal’ in a single shot and won the praises of everybody and created a world record… To his entire team, and to respected A. R. Rahman… And more importantly, to cinematographer Arthur Wilson, who shot the film, I express my whole-hearted wishes and congratulations.”
Rajinikanth is not the first to shower praise on Parthiban’s film. Several film industry professionals like National Award-winning director Seenu Ramasamy have already praised the film. A few days ago, Seenu Ramasamy had said that “It (‘Iravin Nizhal’) is the first Asian Tamil film without an editor. It is the first non-linear single-shot film in which actor Parthiban himself acts and also directs others. ‘Iravin Nizhal’ is historical pride and a light house to Tamil cinema.”
‘Iravin Nizhal’ (meaning ‘Shadow of the Night’), has music by Oscar winner A. R. Rahman and cinematography by Arthur A. Wilson.
