Atharva is ecxited about his new film Eetti, which hit theatres today. Directed by debutant Ravi Arasu, it has Sridivya playing the female lead and is about how the underworld affects sports. “I play an athlete who comes to the city, aspiring to be a national champion in the hurdles event. It’s about the problems the character faces when he gets entangled in the affairs of some antisocial elements,” says Atharvaa. Seems like an exciting cocktail of sports
Vellaiya Irukkiravan Poi Solla Mattan is the catchy title of Abanindran’s debut directorial venture. The former assistant of Rajeev Menon opines that he had wanted to do a film rooted to the soil. A humorous take on how beliefs and superstitions influence human life, the film (out today) has Pravin Kumar and Shalini in the lead. “Though my film reflects our culture, it’s a universal theme everyone can identify with,” says the director. One hopes the film is as interesting as its title.
Never too late
Urumeen would have been Simha’s first solo-hero flick, had it released on time. Directed by debutant Shakthivel Perumalsamy, the film also has Kalaiarasan and Reshmi Menon. “It’s a plot with three generations. And the first seven minutes of the film shouldn’t be missed,” alerts Shakthivel. He adds that they have experimented with different colour tones for the different periods. The action-fantasy-thriller (in theatres today) seems like an interesting watch.
