Parthiban is one of those rare filmmakers who retains the passion to do things differently. Whether it’s his plot lines or his film-related invites, he always tries to lend everything his unique touch. Like the imaginative invite (a diary with sketches of the actors) he created for the recent audio launch of his new directorial, Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam. The film with its quirky tag line, ‘A film without a story’, promises to be an interesting satire on filmmaking.
Thangasamy’s maiden directorial venture, Raattinam, was appreciated for its realistic feel and moving ending. Now the director is working on his next, Ettuthikkum Madhayaanai, starring Sathya (Arya’s brother). Shreemukhi (from Telugu cinema) is the female lead, and Laguparan, who played the lead in the director’s earlier film, portrays a crucial character. “It’s about a common man’s reaction when the system he turns to during a crisis, fails to give him justice,” says the director.
Adhu Vera Idhu Vera is scheduled to release today. Varshan (comedian Jayamani’s son), who played a negative role in Nanbargal Gavanathirku, essays the lead here. Sharing frames with him is Sanyathara. Debutant director Thilagarajan helms the film, which is about a village boy who aspires to be a don.
