Anxiously awaiting the release of Megha, Ashwin Kakumanu has been part of films like Gautham Menon’s Nadunisi Naigal and Venkat Prabhu’s Mankatha (where he played the role of a cop). But in his new venture he gets to play the solo lead, sharing frames with debutant Srushti. A romantic action-suspense thriller, scheduled to hit theaters today, the film is the maiden directorial venture of Karthik Rishi.
Back to action
Shooting has almost wrapped up for the Arya-Hansika starrer Meagamann. Unlike his recent romantic outings, this film will showcase Arya in the action mode. Its director Magizh Thirumeni’s third film after the realistic urban romance Mundinam Paartheney and the engaging action-suspense thriller Thadaiyara Kaakka. ‘‘It will be a stylish, action-packed commercial entertainer, true to its genre’’, assures Thirumeni.
Life in between
All set to hit theatres today, Kabadam, tracks the life of a couple who are engaged to be married. It delves on the issues they face when the man finds some of the girl’s actions unpalatable. Directed by debutant Jothi Murugan, it has Sachin (of Yadhumagi fame) and Angana Roy in the lead. Sachin, incidentally, has lent his voice for four
songs in the film.
