Mani Ratnam, Veetimaaran and Bala target the same story
Many prominent directors of cinema are certainly interested in works such as historical stories and novels. They also want to make the story into a film. Thus Mani Ratnam had recently succeeded in directing Ponni’s novel Selvan as a mammoth film.
After that, he wanted to make a film titled Prisoners written by writer Jayamohan. But Jayamohan refused to give him this story. Because he has already agreed to give this story to a director named Rabeek.
After Mani Ratnam, Vetrimaaran and Bala also approached Jayamohan for the story. But they too have failed. There is a strong reason behind these three leading directors vying for this story.
Because this story shows how humanity affects one and whether the people of armed forces have that humanity. So Mani Ratnam wanted to make this story into a film for an ambition.

But unfortunately for him, the story went to someone else. Currently, a film titled Ratta Sachi is being made on this story. Produced by Anita Mahendran, the film stars Harish Kumar, Kalyan Master, Ilango Kumaravel and others.
While the announcement of the title of this film has attracted fans, the film will release directly on the Aha Tamil ODT site. The film’s team said that this film, which is the choice of top directors, will definitely give a different experience to the fans. It is also worth noting that the film Vithuthya, which is currently being directed by Vethimaaran, is adapted from a short story by Jeyamohan.
