After a long sabbatical, Vikranth is back on screen as the hero in Thaakka Thaakka. “It’s an intense action drama and the role is written to suit me. It’s also my brother Sanjeev’s debut film as director and co-producer.
So we have a lot at stake here,” says Vikranth. Abhinaya and Arvind (DOP of Demonte Colony) essay crucial characters in the film, which also has a fresh lot of technicians. Hopefully, the film (in theatres today) will be a career booster for the actor.
Director Raja and his brother, actor Jayam Ravi, come together after a brief hiatus for Thani Oruvan. For the first time, Ravi plays a cop. “My script is novel and path-breaking. Here, my hero selects his potential enemy, instead of the usual personal vendetta angle where the villain acts and the hero reacts to him,” says Raja. Releasing today, the film has an ensemble cast comprising Nayanthara, Arvind Samy, Ganesh Venkatram and Harish Uthaman.
Slice of life
His films are few and far between. Now Jeevan is back with the action thriller Adhibar (releasing today), directed by Surya Prakash. Sharing frames with Vidya, Ranjith, Nanda, Samudhirakani and Richard, Jeevan plays an NRI who starts a business, but is taken for a ride by someone he trusts. The film follows how he bounces back. “The plot is based on a real life incident. And it’s the scary realistic scenario that got me hooked to it,” says the actor on why he selected the script.
