Love in 'Maryan' struck right chord with audiences: Bharatbala

Chennai, July 23 : Dhanush-starrer Tamil romantic-drama "Maryan", which released July 19, has received an overwhelming response from audiences and an elated Bharatbala says that the love story in his directorial venture kept everyone engrossed.

"The response has been phenomenal. I have been watching the film over the last few days with the audience in many theatres and realised they are enjoying it to the fullest. Audiences were immersed in the love story till the end," Bharatbala told IANS.

"People usually sit back and relax or even take a break during the songs in a film, but it wasn't the same with 'Maryan'. Audiences didn't move from their seats because even the songs had a story to tell," he added.

"Maryan", inspired by true events, is the story of an Indian held captive in Sudan. It featured Dhanush and Parvathy Menon in the lead roles.

Bala believes Dhanush and Parvathy's performances were like the icing on the cake.

"Dhanush was definitely an attraction. But the credit can't be handed over to him completely because Parvathy was equally powerful in her role and even the story managed to impress," he said.

"Dhanush and Parvathy breathe life into the story. I'm also sure people also have other reasons to like the film," he added.

Bala believes the film must have broken even by now as it continues to have high occupancy even on week days.

When asked about his next project, he said: "I have a few scripts in place, but I haven't zeroed in on what's next. I think it's too soon to think about it."
