The Non feature film, Arakkan, directed by Yadhul Bose and Manu Anto Francis deals with the dark side of the tourist town, Kodaikanal dubbed as “The Princess of Hill Stations”. The film looks beyond the picturesque kodaikanal’s ravishing beauty, quite unknown to the outer world. The film is narrated through the experiences shared by the people in the region, who have seen and done what is beyond belief. Arakkan is an unusual journey through the untold tales of those men, filled with horrifying experiences no men would ever want to face. This film is a gentle reminder of the poor souls, who had risked their life and youth to serve the families in bringing their loved one’s remaining from the dark alleys of Kodai.
