Many films are based upon the village setting, and while some of them are feel-good comedies, others are quite thrilling and romantic. But village settings have always been a centre of attention for many filmmakers in today’s date. That is because the audience always wants to get away from the hubbub and the city’s social etiquettes. Furthermore, the settings are much more endearing to the audience when they are introduced to village characters who are mostly innocent. The characters are also very well received by the audiences—one of such feel-good films based on villages in the film Android Kattappa.
