The first fight in Kabali will make you fear the guy - K L Praveen
(Tuesday, 5th April 2016)

Editing is one of the most vital departments of filmmaking and yet, not many outside the film industry understand its significance. City Express caught up with editor K L Praveen, a National Award winner, to know more about his role as an editor and the way superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali is taking shape...

What exactly does an editor do?

An editor basically marries the work of several departments in a film. When a unit shoots a film, they don’t do it in a linear fashion. They shoot whatever sequences they can based on a number of factors such as locations, availability of artistes, time and equipment. For instance, Kabali’s climax was shot first before the rest of the film was canned. Eventually, what we do as editors is keep the film stay as close to the script as possible. We try to present the film just as how it was conceived as an idea. Editors play a key role because we are the only department which liases with every other department in filmmaking 

For an editor, pressure will be maximum a month before the film’s release. You are now working on Kabali. So, the pressure levels must be immense...

Working on Kabali has given me a lot of respect in the industry and I must thank Rajini sir, Ranjith and Dhanu sir for this opportunity.Although Kabali is a huge film, I would say that we are under no pressure at all. To be honest, we are very relaxed.

This is possible because of the kind of comfort that is provided by the team itself. Director Ranjith is a cool guy. He would say, ‘If you need time and space, just take it. Let’s get the product out in a better fashion. Let’s not rush to release’. Rajini sir too is like that. After I saw the rushes, I told Rajini sir, ‘I need some time to log both the versions’. He simply said, ‘OK sir.’

As far as chopping is concerned, it is the other way round for Kabali. I am keeping scenes and Ranjith keeps saying, ‘Chop them off’. Ranjith has been very sweet so far. That is what happened in Madras too. We have this unsaid rule wherein if I am excited, he knows that it is going to work. That is the bond we both have developed. Even for Kabali, when I watched the entire film after it was assembled, I was pretty excited and said, “You have done better than what your script was.”

Kabali has several moments that will make you clap in joy. For instance, Rajini sir’s introduction scene is going to make fans erupt in joy. I don’t think there has been an intro like this for Rajini sir in the last few years. It is sleek, stylish and done in a very artistic fashion. I think Ranjith has pulled it off very well with help from the cinematographer Murali.

How much of Kabali is done?

I have already logged the first half. I am looking to finish off the second half by this week. Teaser work is also going on. The teaser will not be more than a minute.

Considering you are an editor who has an eye for detail, which is your favourite sequence in Kabali?

The first fight that happens in the movie establishes his character in the film. It is something which has been done very carefully. It shows what he is and what he has done as a don. It is a very short sequence. But the way he fights and the manner in which he delivers the dialogues, you will actually fear the guy.

Kabali has raised expectations not only because it features Rajini but also because it has brought together Rajini with a young director like Pa Ranjith. Tell us what appeals to you most about Kabali?

It is the script and more importantly, Rajini sir saying yes to this script. A lot of young directors have told me that Rajini sir’s decision has given them hope to write scripts for big heroes. Several have actually told me, ‘Whether I succeed in making a film with them or not, I know I can write a film for a top star’.

Rajini sir’s decision to work with Ranjith has shaken the Tamil film industry quite a bit. Until now, the industry worked primarily on combinations. The idea was ‘This big director with this big hero would entail a budget of this amount and the recovery would be this sum’. However, Rajini sir’s decision to work with a young director has completely shattered this business module that has been in place for the last 10-12 years.

This very decision of his has given a lot of hope to several people.
