On Sunday, the Sundarapandian team met the media as director M Sasikumar who has produced the film under his Company Productions banner, introduced his co stars and unit members and showed the first look and two songs to the media.
The film is directed by newcomer SR Prabhakaran who assisted Sasikumar in Subramaniyapuram and Eesan apart from assisting ST Saba earlier. According to the newbie, Sasikumar had promised him an independent film and had lived up to the promise.
The film has Laxmi Menon of Kumki fame playing the heroine while Sasikumar plays a Rajni fan in the flick. The film is touted as a love story and has all emotions and commercial elements for the masses as well.
The others in the cast include Inigo Prabhakaran who acted in Susindrans’ Azhagarsamiyin Kudhirai and Vijay Sethupathy who acted in Seenu Ramasamy’s Thenmerku Parava Kaatrai. National award winner Appukutty is playing a very different role and has undergone a makeover including a different hair style from his usual long curly locks for the film.
Raghunandan is scoring the music while Premkumar handles the camera. The film is set in Theni. After the trailer two songs were shown. In one song, Sasikumar is seen copying the style and gestures of Superstar Rajnikanth and when quizzed about that, he revealed, ‘I play a Rajini fan and hence the Rajini mannerisms.’
The film has him playing lover boy for a change and there some romantic moments between the lead pair. The film is set for a September 14th release.
