Why AR Murugaodss came on board for 1947 August 16?

This will stay with you forever once you see it.” Director N.S. Ponkumar says, “This is not a story about a freedom struggle, but a group of innocent villagers understanding “What is Freedom”? One among them is the protagonist, who is always aggressive and furious, a heroine with a yearning heart, people who laugh out sarcastically about their problems, and old-aged elderly couple in love. The story revolving around these characters is narrated with emotional essence and a gripping screenplay”
