<p>Vikram admits that it was deliberate that the Shabeer Kallarakkal and Mirna Menon film, which opens this Friday, was filmed in a confined space with a small cast.</p>
<p>“We had the concept for the screenplay during the epidemic, and we were determined to use the existing resources to produce a ‘practical’ picture. We made the decision to make it entirely on our own without the assistance of a large production company.</p>
<p>The film stars Sarpatta Parambarai star Shabeer as her sly husband, who seems to be hatching sinister intentions against her, and Jailer star Mirna as a pregnant lady. The whole story is set in a hamlet where women give birth.</p>
<p>“I always wanted to make a film about pregnancy and pregnant women because of the physical vulnerabilities a woman goes through during that phase,” says Vikram, explaining his inspiration for the scene and the characters. We learned about many fascinating aspects of pregnancy while doing more study, which inspired us to create the universe of Birthmark and the issues that surround it. The location is not just a passive addition; it is a character all by itself.</p>
<p>According to Vikram, the main inspiration for the movie came from his observations of army guys whose behavior changed after experiencing a terrible war.</p>
<p>Pregnant women are often included in screenplays as an easy way to raise the stakes in a narrative, but Vikram argues that Birthmark is an exception to this rule. Here, the pregnancy is the storyline itself, not a narrative device. Pregnancy has not been used as a ruse. I have no doubt that the audience will be drawn in by the efforts we have made to center the script on the pregnancy.</p>
