“The name of the character Vijay plays in ‘Kavalan’ is Boominathan and everyone watching the film would love something about his role,” says sources close to ‘Kavalan’ unit.
“It can be said that Vijay’s character in the film, which is soft and lively, could remind the roles he played in ‘Kadhalukku Mariyadhai’, ‘Thullatha Manamum Thullum’ and ‘Friends’,” sources further say.
“At the same time, there will be enough scope for action,” they say and add: “Because, director Siddique has made little changes to the original story keeping in mind the action hero image of Vijay.”
A remake of Malayalam hit ‘Bodyguard’, the other two strengths of ‘Kavalan’ are Vadivelu & Asin. “Besides, Vidyasagar’s music is also going to be one of the highlights of the movie,” sources conclude.
