She got positive feedback for her performances in all her three releases so far—Saattai, Yennamo Nadakudhu and the recent, Mosakutty. Mahima Nambiar is now looking forward to Kitna, the P Samuthirakani-directed film (in which he’s also acted), where she shares frames with Hansika. In the pipeline is an untitled film with Attakathi Dinesh as her hero. “I am fortunate to have got such varied roles so early in my career,” says Nambiar.
Readying for the rush
Everyone will be chanting Lingaa this weekend, with the Rajinikanth-Anushka Shetty-Sonakshi Sinha starrer hitting theatres today, the superstar’s birthday. Directed by KS Ravikumar, it traverses two time periods, with the Superstar essaying a dual role. “Instead of the usual desaturated colour and tone given to a bygone era, I’ve tried to give it a more vibrant look,” says cinematographer R Rathnavelu. “Rajini’s intro song will be a treat for his fans,” he adds.
Vying with Lingaa for theatre space today is the horror thriller, Yaro Oruvan. Directed by debutant K N Baiju (a former associate of Malayalam director Padmarajan), the film stars debutant Ram and Adhira. It’s about a husband who, along with a detective, goes in search of his missing wife, and the paranormal phenomena that they encounter during their journey.
