Case for politics
The shooting for 49-O has been wrapped up and post production work is going on. Directed by Arokyadas, a former assistant to Gautham Menon, the film marks the re-entry of Goundamani on screen after a long hiatus. The ace comedian, who had essayed lead roles in a few films years ago, plays a farmer now. A light- hearted take on modern day politics and elections, it seems an ideal comeback vehicle for the actor.
Three to tango
6 candles was a career boost for Shaam. Now, the actor is busy shooting for the multi-starrer, Purampokku. Ask him about his relationship with his co-actors, Arya and Vijay Sethupathy, and Shaam says, ‘‘All three of us have equal screen space though our roles travel in different dimensions. We gel well off screen and meet up after the shoot. This will reflect on our on-screen performance too’’. It seems to be another interesting project from director Jhananathan.
On another stage
It has an unusual title, Oru Kuppai Kathai. The film directed by newcomer Kali Rangasamy, has dance composer Dinesh debuting as the hero, with Manisha Yadav as the female lead. The choreographer-turned- actor says that though he had got acting offers earlier too, he found this script interesting enough to take it up. Dinesh had won the National Award for his choreography in Aadukalam. Whether he is as adept in his new ‘heroic’ avatar, one has to wait and watch.
