Actress Ramya Nambessan, who plays the female lead in director Vetri Duraisamy’s Endravadhu Oru Naal, says that she had to learn to ride a bullock cart to work on the rural drama and that working on the film was a wholesome and satisfying experience.
“I play Rasathi, a woman who has a bullock cart and earns her livelihood through it. I had to train for sometime to handle a bullock cart and I eventually managed to learn to ride a cart after some practice,” says Ramya Nambessan.
Endravadhu Oru Naal’s story is about an agricultural family that lovingly brings up two bulls. Poverty forces them into a situation where they have to sell the animals off. They have no other option but to let their son work. How middlemen exploit the situation to their advantage and how parents, who are kept in the dark, struggle, is what the film is all about.
The actress discloses that she was drawn to this script because of its realism.
“This film has drama plus realism. That attracted me. It speaks of a number of things including how the education of children is affected. The film has a telling impact on one. I kept thinking about the characters and their plight, long after doing the film,” she says.
Apart from Vidharth and Ramya Nambessan, the film will also feature a young kid called Raghavan in the lead.
