A film to showcase metro rail benefits

The National Film Development Corporation (NFDC), on behalf of the state government, has prepared a documentary on metro rail to create awareness among Chennaiites on the need for the project and the unavoidable traffic diversions with which the public will have to cooperate.

Of late, the city has been seeing an increase in traffic diversions due to the metro rail project. Actress Anuja Iyer (of ‘Ninaithale Inikkum’ and ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’ fame) will anchor the film.

“The documentary, made in Tamil and English, runs for nearly 20 minutes. Post-production work is on and the documentary will be screened in theaters and public places. It has been shot by ad filmmaker Poogundran. It took two days to film the documentary,” said Iyer.

As the work on the project will continue till 2015, the documentary will focus on a range of things it would impact. “I will be touching upon the points like why such a project is required, and how it will help us in the future. Shot at landmark spots with heavy traffic like the Egmore railway and the Koyambedu market area, it will also show actual construction sites of metro rail. While including complaints from people, the documentary will stress on how the agencies have taken care to keep the green cover of the city as undisturbed as possible. It would say that no tree would be felled unless it is absolutely necessary,” Iyer said.

A senior metro rail official said that the film would help the corporation educate the people about the benefits of the project and to address any concerns they would have.
