Changing his act
After the horror-comedy, Darling, the director-actor team of Sam Anton and GV Prakash have come together for their second outing, Enakku Innoru Per Irukku. Scheduled to hit theatres today, it is a breezy entertainer. Heaping praise on his hero, Anton says, “Prakash has put in a lot of effort and shows remarkable improvement in his performance since his Darling days.” He adds that the script is structured to cater to a large section of audience.
Dance choreographer-turned-actor Hari Kumar returns to the Tamil screen after a long hiatus, with Kadhal Agathi (releasing today). His earlier films were action flicks, which were more like ‘cowboy’ scripts tweaked to suit local tastes. Kumar also tried out a few other genres, but they didn’t quite work to his advantage. Now he is back in his comfort zone. Says debutant director Shamy Thirumalai, “It’s an action-filled entertainer inspired by a true story.”
Geared for change
He doesn’t confine himself to a particular genre, be it with the films he produces, directs or acts in. In Muthina Kathirika, his home production (releasing today), Sundar C essays a 40-year-old bachelor whose shrewd tactics help him fulfil his political aspirations and get the girl he loves. A romantic comedy with political satire woven in, the film is directed by Sundar’s assistant, Venkat Raghavan. It is a remake of the Malayalam hit, Vellimoonga.
