It is to be noted the last silent film was the Kamal Haasan starrer Pushpaka Vimana in 1987, which released in Hindi as Pushpak, in Tamil as Pesum Padam, and Pushpakvimanam in Malayalam. After almost decades, the silent film is coming back to entertain the audience and Vijay Sethupathi featuring in it is an oomph to the Indian cinema. Gandhi Talks is said to be releasing in six languages which include Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
