‘‘My new film, Kangaroo, will have the flavour of my earlier ones, but sans the controversial elements,’’ assures director Samy. Controversies have dogged him since his first film, mainly due to his unconventional themes. But this time, his plot revolves around sibling bonding. With music by singer Srinivas, the film, which releases today, stars Arjuna (who played a supporting role in Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaya),
Priyanka and Varsha.
Horror at work
With its plot centered around the happenings in an IT company, Yoogan promises to be an exciting horror-suspense flick . Kamal, an editor with three films to his credit, debuts as producer-director. “The treatment will be different from the routine horror flicks of recent times,” he says. Hitting theatres today, it stars Yashmith ( who has essayed brief roles in films like Irandam Ulagam) and Sakshi Agarwal.
The film releasing today is the comic-thriller, Iridium. Directed by debutant Sai Mukundan, it has newbies Mohan Kumar and Arushi in the lead, with Powerstar Srinivasan for comedy. The director says, “It’s about a temple struck by lighting and of how the rumour of the presence of iridium—exposure to which can cause burns and other ill effects—affects the lives of the people there.”
