James vasanthan is a name to reckon with in Tamil cinema. A VJ-turned-music composer, his songs in Subramaniapuram took him to places. Though several offers came to his kitty, he chose to remain choosy and picked on his films with care.
Now he is currently busy with Puthagam, the maiden directorial venture of Vijay Adhiraj.The film stars Satya, actor Aarya’s younger brother, and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead.
Vijay Adhiraj, says, ‘ I am a great fan of James Vasanthan. He has the knack of coming up with catchy melodies. In Puthagam, he will mesmerise the listeners.’
Dwelling on the movie, he says, ‘Vijay Adhiraj is using the Sony F65 to shoot his film Puthagam. It is the first film in Asia being shot with this camera. Laxman, my cameraman, suggested it as the Sony F65 has an 8k resolution and a 4K raw recording facility.’
The movie went to floors last week. It is racy and riveting, sources say.
