Director Karthik Subbaraj who has worked on a number of projects is all set to add another feather to his cap. The director is all set for his upcoming silent thriller titled Mercury starring Prabhudeva.
Based on five friends who are caught in some uncalled for situations and the incidents that ensue, Mercury is set out to be a true audio-visual experience.
Working on a no-dialogue film is no easy feat. Commenting on the same, director Karthik Subbaraj said,
“Mercury is one of the most challenging projects I have worked on. From the nuances of the actor’s expressions to the minute technicals of the movie, everything needed to be monitored and looked into. The actors were required to emote purely with their face.”
“We shot a lot of this movie in the night. The lighting, set design etc. had to be in sync. Month-long workshops were held with Prabhudeva and the actors on how to emote using their facial expressions only.”
“The cast has been extremely supportive on this journey. Besides being one of the most ambitious projects I have worked on, Mercury has also helped me enhance my skills as a director.”
