Panaji, Nov 27 (IBNS) Hari Viswanath, the director of the film 'Radiopetti' expressed his concern over the widening gap between old and new generation, at the International Film Festival of India, on Friday.

Lauding his experience, the director said that it was an honour for a debut film-maker like himself to have his film screened at the IFFI.

Interacting with media persons at Media Centre at Meet the Director programme, Viswanath said that instead of concentrating on social media, a suitable platform is required to be made available to voice the issues concerning old people.

Radiopetti is a story of an old man, Arunachalam who finds solace in his past, especially when listening to musical melodies of his younger days on a vintage radio set that his father gave him. One day the vicissitudes of life put a family member’s life in danger and Arunachalam is forced to choose between his family and his music, knowing he will lose one forever. He is now being torn apart, what will he chose? And will he survive his sacrifice?

Inspired by real life incidents, Filmmaker Hari Viswanath wrote and directed his debut short film Idukkan (Suffering) which won the Best Short Film Award in Norway Tamil Film Festival (2013). Ever since he has been actively directing films and writing stories close to his heart.
