After Director A.R Murugadoss’s ‘Thuppaki starring Vijay, the Ilayathalapathy has Gautham Menon’s film titled ‘Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru’. The tagline is: Mission I – New York City.
As the shooting of ‘Thuppaki’ is progressing as scheduled, it is expected that Gautham Menon may launch his next film this year. The teaming up of Gautham Menon and Vijay was announced last year and they wanted to take up Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru after they completed their respective projects in hand.
Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru is apparently an action – packed entertainer that “blends Vijay’s mass appeal and Gautham Menon’s slick packaging”. Gautham and Vijay agreed on a one-line teaser script for the film.
Gautham Menon is currently busy with ‘Neethane En Ponvasantham’ starring Jeeva and Samantha. Ilayaraja is the composer.
Vijay apart, the rest of the cast and the technical team for Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru are yet to be announced. Photo Kathaas will produce Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru.
Meanwhile, Vijay is execited about ‘Thuppaki’. He described AR Murugadoss as ‘Kutti Mani Ratnam’. He is quoted as saying he has had very few mass films that are stylist in nature as well and ‘Thuppaki’ is one such film – an out-and-out action entertainer that has some “brilliant sequences”. Kajal Agarwal, the heroine, has done a good job in a performance- oriented role. Vidyut, the villain, has done a ‘great job’.
Composer Harris Jayaraj called Vijay to his studio and wanted him to try out a ramp number. “I sang it and everyone felt it had come out well. It’s an easy song; anyone can hum,” he added..
