Lens has the distinction of being a multi-lingual film its characters speak in as many as four languages. Seventy per cent of the story is about the Skype interaction between two characters from different backgrounds. The characters switch between accented English, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam just like we speak in real life, adds the software engineer, who moved to India from the U.S. to pursue cinema. Despite the usual stress on the importance of sticking to a local language for commercial benefits, the director has chosen to feature as many languages in order to add to the films realism. Most people who use social media speak in multiple languages and the film targets a cosmopolitan audience not just audiences from one region. Its story affects people across different centres and goes beyond the multiplexes.
