one had a close look at two of the biggest hits of Gautham Menon – Kaaka Kaaka and Vettaiyadu Vilayadu, apart from both being cop stories and backed by power performance of the cast, there was another line of similarity – the lead ladies of both the movies, be it Jyothika of Kaaka Kaaka or Kamlini Mukherjee of Vettaiyadu Vilayadu, get killed. Even Jyothika in Vettaiyadu Vilayadu was shown to be killed in the initial days of release of the movie only to be changed later and in DVD version.
If a birdie from Kollywood is to be believed, even in the director’s upcoming Vaaranam Aayiram, the heroine (Sameera Reddy) is killed due to unfortunate circumstances of events. This is when the twist in the story creeps up with the arrival of Ramya into the scene. Seems like the director believes that the death of his heroines could bring his movies some luck as well as a huge empathetic fan-following for the Hero as well.
A story about a go-getter and the impact of these two heroines on his life, the same birdie also lets us know that Vaaranam Aayiram has the potential to be the best of Gautham Menon with some great music by Harris Jeyaraj and breath taking camera by Ratnavelu..
With big time expectations cropping up on this Surya–Gautham Menon combination after Kaaka Kaaka, we hope the same magic is weaved by Gautham Menon and his excellent team of cast and crew. So until then let’s keep our fingers crossed and see if this proves to be yet another feather in Gautham’s cap.
