It is to be remembered that KV had been a professional photojournalist before he switched professions to be a film director. And his protagonist in Ko is also armed with a camera. He has also incorporated a scene in Ko, where the leading man"s camera is smashed by a furious gathering, an incident which occurred in the filmmaker"s life, when he was covering a riot in Thirupathur.
Ko has been shot in grim locales in Tanzania, a place which suits the mood of the incidents portrayed in his upcoming action film. In fact, Anand has made it a point to take his music composer Harris Jayaraj to the locations to give him a feel of the place, so that he may be able to score the tracks of Ko keeping the surroundings in mind.
