Vadivelu may have used the words jil jung juk as gibberish in a film, but the Siddharth-starrer—of the same name—has its title related to the plot. It’s about three hitmen on a mission, their journey chronicled in a humorous way. Debutant director Deeraj Vaidy calls it an ‘action comedy’.
“To me, the film is all about the universe being both ruthless and kind to a bunch of guys,” he says. Siddharth’s second production venture, the film (releasing today) is sans a female lead.
A tea break
Today, Vemal and Nandita are coming on-screen to regale audiences. Anjala, directed by debutant Thangam Saravanan, is produced by stunt choreographer Dhilip Subbarayan. The film’s central theme is a tea stall run by a family for generations. With Pasupathi in the cast, it is touted as a full-length comic caper. Hopefully, this could prove a game changer for Vemal, whose career is on a shaky wicket.
Packing a punch
When apprehended by cops, criminal elements sometimes mention a scene in a film as the inspiration for their acts. So it is heartening to note that films have a positive effect on society, too. Like Irudhi Suttru. Since the film’s release, female boxing has got a thumbs up and coaches have reported an increase in the number of female trainees in their classes. An elated Madhavan remarks, “This is so very awesome and humbling. This is what I really work for as an actor.”
