Studio Green’s Gnanavel Raja held a press meet to announce that his Karthi – Kajol Agarwal starrer Naan Mahaan Alla, directed by Suseenthiran is ready for release in July.
Those present at the meet included hero Karthi, director Suseenthiran, cinematographer Mathi, editor Kasi Viswanath, dialogue writer Baskar Sakthi and producer Gnanavel. The film will be marketed by Cloud Nine
The Paiyaa team of Karthi, music director Yuvan Shankar Raja and cameraman Mathi are together again in NMA. Says director Suseenthiran: “If my earlier film Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu had a village milieu, NMA has a city background. The film belongs to Karthi and Pasanga fame Jayaprakash who plays his dad”
NMA story in a nutshell is about a happy go lucky guy played by Karthi being drawn into a cesspool of crime after an incident changes his life. Kajol plays what the director says “a cute girl, something similar to what Asin did in Ghajani”.
Karthi says: “ Suseenthiran says that my character in NMA is similar in nature to the moody yet jovial characterization of Karthik in Mani Sir’s Mouna Ragam. The film is racy and I play Jeeva, a typical middle class Chennai youth and the story is a slice of life in a big city. It is a stylish yet realistic film.”
Naan Mahaan Alla, is slated for release on July 23. It is going to be Karthi’s fourth release, in three years and the third this year after Aayirathil Oruvan and Paiyaa.
