Appavin Meesai (English: My father's moustasche) is an upcoming Tamil drama film directed by Rohini. The film features an ensemble cast including Cheran, Pasupathy, Nithya Menen and Salim Kumar in leading roles, while Achu Rajamani composes the film's music and Resul Pookutty is the sound editor.

The film revolves around a coming of age story of a 14-year-old boy in Kolkata and why he decides to behave the way he does against all odds and the reasons behind it.[1][2]



Rohini revealed that Appavin Meesai is based on a true incident about a young boy that she had read in a Telugu newspaper back in 2007. She was inspired to develop a script based on the incident, in Tamil rather than Telugu and soon after that began approaching people to make the film.The project was announced in July 2012 with actress Rohini marking her debut as a director.[3] The team began filming in West Bengal in September 2012, with scenes involving Nassar and Pasupathy being shot.[4] Indian child actress Ahsaas Channa also shot for the film in the initial schedules, finishing her portions in January 2013.[5] Nithya Menen and Salim Kumar were later also roped in to play pivotal roles in the film. Achu Rajamani is the film's composer, while Resul Pookutty is the sound editor.[6] Alphonse Roy is the Cinematographer and Sreekar Prasad edited the film.

To involve common public in her first feature, Rohini Molleti made her appeal on a popular crowdfunding website and hoped to receive a value of 40 lakhs through the initiative.[7][8]
