Back in time
Director Vasanthabalan’s much awaited Kaviyathalaivan is releasing today. With an ensemble cast including Sidharth, Prithviraj, Vedhika and Anaika, it’s a period film that depicts the life and times of theatre artists in pre-independence India. With the director’s penchant for detailing and capturing the ethos realistically, it seems a film worth watching out for.
‘‘I feel satsfied that I’ve managed to complete and release my
film,’’ says debutant producer-director-hero K G Senthil Kumar.
His Vizhi Moodi Yosithaal, a revenge-saga, released last Friday. Senthil, who has completed a course at the New York Film Academy, has won international awards for two of his short films. But why such a low key release, we ask him. ‘‘I didn’t have the budget for marketing and promotion,’’ he candidly admits.
The team of Ore Iravu and Ambuli 3D (director duo
Hari-Harish and cinematographer Satish) are back with yet another horror-flick. Tamil screen’s first horror anthology, Aaah, has five stories set in five different locations. It’s about three friends who, on a bet, venture out globally in search for the existence of paranormal activities. With Gokul, Meghna and Simha in the cast, the film, which releases today, seems ideal fare for lovers of the genre.
