Time for action
“It’s not an issue based or an experimental film…It’s a stylish commercial entertainer that’s true to its genre,” says director Magizh Thirumeni about Meegamann, his Christmas offering. The Arya-Hansika starrer has Arya moving away from the romantic outings of recent films, and venturing into an action mode.
Soori has carved an enviable niche for himself as a comedian to reckon with. Makers are now approaching him for roles where he does not have to play sidekick to the hero. On the floors is Sarvadhikari where Soori plays the lead with debutant Renuka and comedians like Robot Shankar supporting him. The film is helmed by debut producer-write-director Shiva. With comedy in the first half, it is thrills and action in the second half.
It’s testing time for Vaibhav who is steadily graduating from acting in multiple starrers to playing solo leads. In the Christmas release, Kappal, he plays the lead again, sharing frames with Sonam Bajwa. Centered around friendship and bonding, it’s a light hearted entertainer. The film is directed by Kartik G Krish, a former assistant to Shankar.
