Bala's Paradesi based on real life incidents that took place before independence in the 1930's and is inspired from the novel Red Tea, written by Paul Harris Daniel.
The movie got many obstacles for its release initially and even a 'reality' making video was a huge sensation. Many celebrities condemned the video making. But the final output by Director Bala is absolute stunning.
