Buoyed by the overwhelming response to the recently released Tamil romantic drama "Cuckoo", its makers Fox Star Studios and The Next Big Film presented the film's director Raju Murugan with a Renault Duster SUV as a token of appreciation.
"A gesture of appreciation from Fox Star Studios and The Next Big Film to Director Raju Murugan, who gave us the commercially successful film 'Cuckoo' and who also made us proud," read a statement from production house The Next Big Film.
"Cuckoo", which released March 21, is the love story of a visually impaired couple. The film has been adjudged a hit at the box office.
The unanimous verdict about the film has been that it never forced the audience to sympathise with the lead characters and helped them create an emotional bond.
Dinesh and Malavika Nair played the lead visually challenged couple in the film, which has music by Santosh Narayanan.
