T. Damodaran is busy writing a screenplay for director I.V. Sasi, with whom he has enjoyed a successful partnership. `Adimakal Udamakal' would always be one of the films closest to his heart. "I thought I was able to say some important things about trade unionism in Kannur through that film."
Few script-writers have used contemporary politics as cleverly for their films as he has. "That's because I have always been fascinated by history. And I want to say something to the society through my films."
