I completed rewriting VAFAATHERI KEHIVERIYAA last night, but did some polishing even today. No, I am not relieved nor my mind at peace. I have a feeling more rewrites to come once I submit the rewritten screenplay to SEEZAN later this evening.
What did I rewrite? Like I mentioned in my previous post, I rewrote three existing scenes and added three new scenes that made a smooth bridge to the climax not exactly imagined by SEEZAN but the way I imagined the climax would be fitting in general to the storyline. However, during the rewriting, I went through the whole screenplay from the very first scene to the final scene which I had to because this screenplay happened to be intricate and the scenes interwoven to each other than any other screenplay I have written so far. I had to bring major and minor changes to the dialogue and changes dramatically to several key scenes because they were connected to the three scenes I rewrote. Also the three new scenes had to be linked to other major scenes.
This whole rewriting experience was absolute development hell than I first thought. The most difficult task was after completing the draft which was written as a suspense thriller filled with sleazy characters, on SEEZAN’s request I had to add weeping drama in to it hence shaking the very foundation of the narrative arrangement and thus afflicting the character development. That nearly fried my gray matter. I still hear sizzling sound with in.
I don’t intend to write too much about VAFAATHERI KEHIVERIYAA because I think I need to divert my mind off it. How about praying that I don’t need to do another rewrite? Is that a diversion? Think about the character of SEEZAN is cast to play rides off in to a sea of tears towards the sunset. Oh boy, even the sun is howling!
I guess, for the time being, I can relax until SEEZAN reads the rewrite and asks me to rewrite again by adding more weeping drama. But I just hope to god… NOT!
