Produced by Karthik Subburaj, Kallachirippu which translates as 'Picture Perfect', is an intense thriller drama about a young urban couple whose arranged marriage goes horribly wrong when the wife accidentally kills her husband. This sets off a chain of events which reveal the true nature of every character involved in the marriage.
