Jayaraj believes that one has to be receptive and skilled to mould this raw material as a fitting component in one's craft.
The beauty of Raudram 2018, the seventh of Jayaraj's Navarasa series, is that this philosophy is never emphasised overtly.
The movie has been selected to the Cairo International Film Festival's international panorama.
The camera is by Nikhil S Praveen, who earned the national award for best cinematography for Jayaraj's previous flick, 'Bhayanakam.'
The story, screenplay, dialogue and direction is by Jayaraj. He also penned the lyrics.
