‘Spirit’ would address substance abuse issues: Ranjith
Director Ranjith, who has wrapped up the shooting of his latest film ‘Spirit’ with Mohanlal in the lead role, says that this is a film that attempts to address substance abuse issues. Ranjith feels that ‘Spirit’ would have a very valid statement to make on an addiction that has started eating it way into the Kerala society – that of alcohol.
Ranjith adds that there would not be any effort to advice and advocate a view point, nor would the film try to spread awareness against the use of alcohol. But it would definitely discuss issues that should be of great concern to us, like the impact of alcohol use on health and familial relations, and even drug abuse that has become very common in the younger generations.
‘Spirit’ also has Shankar Ramakrishnan playing a key role. The film marks the coming together of the director with Mohanlal after a long time. Ranjith’s recent films like ‘Pranchiyettan and the Saint’ and ‘Indian Rupee’ have remained commercial as well as critical successes, and the expectations regarding ‘Spirit’ are naturally immense.
