Movies on the wait list – in near future
Amidst so many cries over the clutches of some forces over the industry, the Tamil Cinema industry underwent a critical phase. Now the changes in the climate seems to have given way for the producers and the directors to have their cake walks in delivering the movies. Here in the list we provide a clear picture about the upcoming movies in the near future. It is hoped that these movies find entry into the theatres without any complication.
10) Raja Pattai
For Vikram, giving much gap for his movies is quite delicate to digest. Hence he clears the decks for moving to projects one after another. While Deiva Thirumagal is ready for release, Vikram has now got the luggage for his next movie Raja Pattai.
The director will be Suseendran of Naan Mahan Alla & Vennila Kabbadi Kulu fame. More than these films, Suseendran is on the hot list now with his aimless success of Alagarsamiyin Kudirai, running screen packed. He had his ambition clear for this movie and so he has not made any surprising remarks over AK. Suseendran seems to create his own image by working with somewhat demanding heroes and so his choice for Vettai Mannan is Vikram. He outlined that this film will depict usual formula – romance, comedy and action. Now he has come back from Singapore after getting relieved from the stress of AK.
But he has not wasted his trip since he took Yuvan Shankar Raja to set tunes for Raja Pattai. It is learnt that this movie will have the character rendering of Thambi Ramaiah, the national award winner. The film will be ready for release in the short schedule of two months.
As the title indicates, the film will speak the authority of both Suseendran & Vikram, we can hope.
If one hero who can boast that he has not made any producer at loss, then it will be Karthi. He has to his credit all his films on the hit list – starting from Paruthiveeran down to Siruthai. In all these 5 years of his professional move his films are choosy but had the reach to the mass.
In each of his movies, he had a different role and his talent exhibited his learning from Mani Ratnam camp. He has the flair to deliver the best at ease and his timing of release of his movies gathers more momentum. If one gauges Karthi from the point of view of getting the best then he fills in the void.
His next movie is Saguni, slated for earlier release, with 70 days schedule. The film is directed by the new comer Shankar Dayal. He hinted that the film will be a full length political concept and may be a satire on contemporary politics. With main cast to be let out public the movie is all set to go on screens by this year end.
8 ) Aadhi Bhagavan
With Amir, the film will be certain to create some hot news and after Paruthiveeran much was expected of him. This is due to his off the record portrayal of characters and treatment of themes. No one would have forgotten the climax of Paruthiveeran and the role of Jeeva in Ram.
Now Ameer is busy directing his Aadhi Bhagavan starring Jeyam Ravi & Neetu Chandra and after a long gap, the traverse presence of the dancer Sudha Chandran. Karunas fill in the humor segment and the cast includes Babu Antony too.
If the track record of Ameer’s movies is to be gauged on the basis of musical supremacy then none of his films disappointed us, whether it is his Mounam Pesiyathe, Ram and Paruthiveeran. Such was the confidence he has on Yuvan Shankar Raja and it is true that Yuvan Shankar Raja too has not betrayed or deterred Ameer.
7) Vettai Mannan
For Simbu the last two years have been the good times of rich harvest. Ever since the release of Vinnaithandi Varuvaya, audience has switched over the glance of him with a different outlook. This film put off the stereo typed portrayal of Simbu with rolling lips, gestures of fingers and action. Gautham Menon completely silenced all these movements and brought in the necessities of the character.
Vaanam too made a good platform for STR and he by now is realizing his own dearth for worthy choices. His next movie is Vettai Mannan again a going back to the action sprawl, directed by the debutant Nelson. STR claimed that he preferred this role as it has the lot of challenges to his quench. He is paired with Deeksha Seth and in a narrow scope Jai is pitted to go along with him. Other characters are on the review as the movie is scheduled for either Deepavali or late 2011.
The once popular producer who had gained much from Ajith, SS Chakravarthy is producing this movie. Yuvan Shankar Raja got the nod for music composition and the songs are yet to be on the air. The movie will be trilingual Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
After the hectic schedule for superstar’s Endhiran, Shankar quite unusually carried out his instant project, Nanban. This, he intended to replicate the Bollywood hit 3 Idiots and has infused the stardom with Vijay, Jeeva and Srikanth. For the feminine fragrance he has strewn Ileana while the peak of stardom is elevated with the presence of Sathyaraj.
The sets are busy now and Shankar intends to release this movie to coincide with the festival of Deepavali. Quite conventional to his kitchen theme, Shankar has not even hinted about the story of this movie. And for a change, after Anniyan, Shankar has entrusted the music to Harris Jeyaraj.
Normally when everything goes for redefinition, the perfection would be more and with Shankar behind the camera for this remake (the first ever venture by him) Nanban may speak volumes of his might. This will not be a mere Nabenda concept but a full length comical narration involving these three artists. Especially for Jeeva, after his mammoth success of Ko.
5) Deiva Thirumagal
The transitive phases of this movie with Vikram has undergone many struggles before getting ready for release. The initial title, Deiva Magan was forced to be changed by the director Vijay and the subsequent title Deiva Thirumagan was also under threat by protest and objection from a particular segment of the society. The title as of now has changed to the gender transition with Deiva Thirumagal.
The story seems to be the affection bond and is, if the sources mean it, an embrace from the Hollywood hit I am Sam and Vikram is on full throttle to settle the score of his flop movie, Kanthaswamy. For the director Vijay this movie’s hit may be back to back after his Madrasapattinam. He too on the urge to witness the early release of this movie because some producers are on queue to take him off. Some sources indicate that Vijay has been on the ready list by Ajith for his forthcoming movies.
The cast includes Anushka, Amala Paul and the veteran character artist Nazzer for heavy loads. The music is none other than by GV Prakash Kumar and the songs are already on the topper list. The technical team is endured with the photography from Neerav Shah and Antony donning the editing. Soon to be on the screens, Deiva Thirumagal may be a box office hit in this year.
4) Avan Ivan
Director is Bala is unique and controversial for his themes yet he has the knack of winning laurels. This is what his track record proves from his first venture – Sethu, where Vikram got the needed career break; Nanda in which Surya was depicted the anti-hero but was made a pathetic character; Pitha Magan which roamed the theatres for the serious treatment of a simple theme which eventually fetched the national award for Vikram; the last in the series Naan Kadavul was a slashing message for the atheists.
Everytime when he begins the new project Bala is firm on his beliefs and he sets the tone to raise a tome of achievement. His approach to the theme, the choice of characters from the everyday life and the selection of artists make the work worthy to recognize. The upcoming movie Avan Ivan is ready for the release in few weeks which has two heroes on same platform. For Bala dealing with twin heroes is not a difficult task as he has previous experience in Pitha Magan focusing equal prominence to Surya and Vikram.
Avan Ivan has a lot in store to treat the eyes of audience says Bala. Both Aarya & Vishal have documented their skills to exhibit. He added that the movie is a good dearth for both of them to prove their point in the industry and they will succeed in winning hearts. As it is his policy, Bala has not deliberated anything about this movie.
The star cast includes, besides Aarya, Vishal, Madhu Shalini, Janani Iyer and other second line artists. After Nanda, Yuvan Shankar Raja has given a new lease of life to music for Bala. The songs have already hit all the channels. The film is to be released bilingual – Tamil and Telugu (Vaadu Veedu).
After the dismal show of Asal, the Thala wanted to have a real break for the failure journey. It was Billa which came as the last movie on his success count. His Aegan too proved futile with lot of flaws and disappointment to his fans and the producers. Ajith’s crafter Saran was loaded with lot of hopes and marvels when he announced the project of Asal, with the back up of Sivaji Productions. But what use the trial diverted to the trail. Hence Ajith was so vehement to come off an all fresh and powerful movie, Mankatha.
The film is the brainchild of the director Venkat Prabhu who shoot to the fame with his Chennai 600028 and Goa. Moreover, he has close affinity with Ajith which made Thala to accept the project. The producer is Dayanithi Alagiri and the cast includes a lot of famous personalities like Lakshmi Rai, Trisha, Premji Amaren, Vaibhav,Andrea, Anjali, Ashwin and Mahad. The action king Arjun makes his guest appearance. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja after his beleaguered composition for Ajith’s Billa. Already the single track Vilayudu Mankatha has hit the air with more penchant. No word about the story is made public except the sneak that Ajith is to portray himself in a dual concept role.
With the post production work is on completion stage, the film may hit the theatres anytime now on. A roaring mission in the offing for the fans.
After the much struggling phase in the release of Kavalan which made him fume the enemies with furious outburst in the recent assembly elections. Ilayathalapathi Vijay is mending his shoes up to the new track in the ensuing film Velayutham. He has dedicated more time for this movie in spite of his hectic schedule for Shankar‘s Nanban. This movie was on progress when the talks on the Tamil version of 3 Idiots was going on.
With Vijay in the lead role, the opposite role is done by Hansika Motwani who has reaped some fame with the recent Engeyum Kadhal. She will be one along with Genelia and it is learnt that her role will be a journalist in the movie and the role allocated to Hansika will surround the rural posture. Saranya Mohan is pitted for the sister role to Vijay, while Santhanam has his slot in association with the comedian Satyan. After Vettaikaran, Vijay Antony took up the music composition and the songs are expected to hit the air soon. Now Vijay seems to have revived his vigor after the debacle of the DMK party in the assembly elections.
The movie is directed by Jeyam Raja who is an expert in devising a suitable plot in the remakes for his brother Jeyam Ravi. He has assured a feast of best elements in Velayutham and the story is said to revolve around Vijay as a milk vendor who turns to the city bred. And it is also said that some of the situations may resemble Superstar’s Annamalai where he done the role of milk vendor.
Ilayathalapathy is ready for the fight against his fiends and Velayutham may be another core movie for his hit list.
1) 7am Arivu
When A.R Murugadoss came back after his stint in Bollywood for his Ghajni remake everybody was put in guessing. No one could easily find the way A.R Murugadoss would pass on but he had different story to tell to the industry. He chose to have the project with the people close to him but at the same time intended to boost the fame. Hence he announced the 7am Arivu which was planned with Surya in the lead with Shruthi Hassan (daughter of Kamal Hassan) in the slot for heroine.
What ever A.R Murugadoss experiments there will be some novelty and creativity and this movie too is based on this element. He has fused the theme of the hero taming the animals in a circus circumference. And more important this movie is intended to be period film on two different chores of which one will take us to some 1000 years back.
A.R Murugadoss has clubbed the science and fictitious themes in one capsule but in different narrative techniques.
As usual the songs are coming from A.R Murugadoss’ favorite Harris Jeyaraj who has done marvelous job according to the sources. One of the songs has the Chinese rendering from Huo, a Chinese women singer who has rendered excellent song.
The film is produced by Udayanithi Stalin under his banner Red Giant movies and is expected to hit the theatres in August. The audio release is slated for July it is assumed. After a prolonged belief of six stages of knowledge, what A.R Murugadoss wishes to inform through this 7am Arivu is still a mystery. But there must be some logic in his argument as he did in Ghajini with STML (short time memory loss).
