A.R Murugadoss’ much awaited 7am Arivu with Surya and Shruti Hassan in lead role will reportedly grace theatres by July end. According to sources, film is made with a whopping budget of Rs. 84 crores. Interestingly, this is also the highest budget film in Surya’s career till date. Recently, producer Udayanidhi Stalin and director A.R Murugadoss approached US based Stan Winston Studios, who has created some mesmerizing graphics in Cameroon’s Avatar and Shankar’s Endhiran, to do the visual effects. The star cast of 7am Arivu includes Abhinaya, Avinash, Jai, and Johny Tri Nguyen. The technical team includes Harris Jayaraj (music), Ravi K. Chandran (cinematography) and Anthony Gonsalves (editing).
The film is based on the life of a circus artiste and Surya plays the role of a trapeze artiste cum animal trainer. Sources reveal that Surya will be seen in a dual role, playing a contemporary character in one scene and a Chinese monk (through flashback) in a previous birth.
Are we getting 7am Arivu this July?
The film will only take longer to show up at the theaters. Probably in August or later the film will release. But Harris Jayaraj has come up with a tweet saying that the film’s audio will be launched in July last week.
Almost all the directors and producers of big filmmakers have announced and denied audio launches only to be held up by the music directors who delayed the launch of the audio. However, Harris Jayaraj has said that the audio of 7am Arivu will be released by the last week of July 2011.
While Sony Music has purchased the audio rights of all the three films of big heroes, they would not want to release the audio tracks of Ajith’s Mankatha, Vijay’s Velayudham and Surya’s 7am Arivu. This massive competition will result in lost market for each of the films by the other.
If they are released one after the other with a good time interval between the three films, the audio may be sold in good numbers for each. No film would result in loss because of the other two films. Along with the audio release, the release dates of films would also clash with each other. As of now, it is good news for Surya and Harris Jayaraj fans that 7am Arivu audio will soon be available in stores.
