Two to thrill
Ita��s a double whammy for lovers of the horror-comic genre with Hello, Naan Pei Pesuren and Darling 2 hitting theatres today.A�Both are helmed by debutant filmmakers a�� Bhaskar and Satish Chandrasekhar respectively a�� from the short-film fraternity. Hello… with Vaibhav-Oviya-Aishwarya Rajesh in the cast, centres on a possessed cell phone. Darling 2, with rising actors, is about five friends harassed by a couple of ghosts. Unlike some recently-released films in the genre, I hope these two films are appealing.
Keeping it real
a�?Ita��s a murder mystery. And Ia��ve used a narrative style which will be a novelty for the Tamil screen,a�? says director AMR Ramesh about Oru Melliya Kodu. The film, set to hit theatres today, has Arjun, Shaam and Manisha Koirala in the cast. Ramesha��s earlier films, all bilinguals (Tamil/Kannada) like Kuppi, have been inspired by real-life incidents. Ask him if this one is a take on a real-life event, too, and he says, a�?Ita��s not just one, but quite a few real-life events that have inspired me to make this film.a�? One can expect a thriller of a ride here.
Chip off the block
He is one of the versatile actors of Tamil cinema. And now Delhi Ganesh has turned producer and launched his son, Maha, as a heroA�in Ennul Aayiram. A romantic-crime-thriller (releasing today), it is directed by debutant Krishnakumar. Ask Maha how the experience was and he gushes, a�?I enjoyed it thoroughly. My biggest challenge was making my father proud.a�? With a seasoned actor for a father, the young debutant cana��t go wrong.
