For Santhanam, ‘Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya‘ is an important film in his career for more than one reason. For, it’s his maiden production venture. Also, the top comedian of Tamil cinema is playing the lead role in this flick.
Directed by debutant Manikandan, the film has Santhanam, ‘Powerstar’ Dr Srinivasan, Sethu and Vishakha Singh in lead roles.
Interestingly, Santhanam has joined hands with veteran Ramanarayanan to produce ‘Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya‘. Thaman has scored the film’s music.
Even as there is a claim that ‘Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya’ is a remake of K Bhagyaraj’s classic ‘Indru Poi Naalai Vaa’, the film’s director Manikandan denies it.
“It is true that quite like Indru Poi Naalai Vaa, Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya too is about three men who try to woo a woman. But the treatment is totally different,” he says.
The director adds: “Though the basic knot of both the movies sound similar, the story and screenplay are completely different. KLTA is a unique entertainer.”
Stating that the three lead actors (Santhanam, ‘Powerstar’ Dr Srinivasan and Sethu) have worked really hard for the movie, Manikandan says their acts will bring the roofs down.
Says Santhanam, “”The film has shaped up as a laugh riot. Despite being a newcomer, Manikandan has directed the movie like an experienced filmmaker. He will sure make a mark.”
He adds: “We are awared that Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya has created expectations among the audience. We are hopeful of fulfilling them.”
