555, written and directed by Sasi stars Bharath in a never-seen-before avatar. Saravanan Abimanyu has cranked the camera; Simon has scored the music and Na. Muthukumar has penned the lyrics.
The film also stars Santhanam, Manobala, Suresh Berry, Rajbharath, Mrithika, Yarikka Fernandes and Lakshmi. An action thriller, 555 has loads of romance and sentiment in it.
Says Bharath, ‘you will see a bubbly Bharath. This role required me to get a six-pack for which I was put on a strict diet of egg white and boiled chicken for almost a year. I started having rice two weeks ago, only after winding up the shooting for 555′.
‘I have worked for nearly two-and-a-half years on the film, but director Sasi has worked on the subject for nearly four years. The screenplay is highly suspenseful and I am sure there won’t be any dull moment for the audience sitting through the film’.
The film was shot for over a couple of years. I waited for Bharath to change his looks. He apears in three different get-ups, says Sasi.
The hard work and deication of Bharath is the highlight of the movie. He has given his best and without him, I would have not completed the movie, he adds.
The movie was done in various locales. We did thorough research and the outcome has been amazing, he adds.
