‘Pattalam’ is the second film produced by popular director Lingusamy’s Tirupathi Brothers. ‘It was an eventful day for Lingusamy and his production house Tirupathi Brothers as they launched the audio of Pattalam, featuring Nadiya and a Nadiya bunch of youngsters, at Sathyam Cinemas. The function almost resembled a fresher’s day in college!
The young guns of Kollywood – Jayam Ravi, Bharath, Srikanth, Prasanna, Jeeva, Shakti, Jai and the lone girl Vijaylaxmi – presented bouquets to the newcomers being introduced through the film – Kripa, Guru, Vikash, Sathya, Irrfan, Balaji, Hari, Vignesh and Arun.
Says Nadiya, the cynosure of all eyes, who was wearing a brown chiffon sari and a designer blouse, “I had a real blast working with these young guys and the shoot was great fun. I’m sure that the film will appeal to our young audiences”.
Nadiya asked the audiences to observe two minutes silence in memory of the martyrs of the Mumbai massacre, in which she had lost two dear friends.
The film is directed by Rohan Krishna whose serial on school life in a Tamil channel created waves. According to him, the story is set against a school milieu. “I would like to emphasise that school days are the best times you ever have as friends and memories of those days will always bring back sweet nostalgia,” he says.
Pattalam has some peppy music by singer and music director Jassie Gift (who can forget Lajjavathiye?).
