Director CS Amudhan debuted as director with Kollywood more than a couple of years back with lots of promise and plenty of sarcasm-filled dialogues in his debut film Tamizh Padam.
The film was not only a commercial success but also was lauded by critics and movie-goers for the bold manner in which it ‘attacked’ the cliched manner of filmmaking followed for many years in Tamil (Indian?) cinema.
CS Amudhan is back with his second film titled as Rendavathu Padam (literally meaning ‘second film’ in Tamil). After showing the way for many film-makers to make fun-filled films laced with dialogues attacking the films and the way they are made, CS Amudhan assures that Rendavathu Padam would have ‘something’ of ‘everything’ and is meant for all cutting across the age and cultural barriers.
Vimal, Richard (younger brother of actress Shalini) and Arvind Akash play the lead roles. Remya Nambeesan and Vijayalakshmi play the female leads in the film which is itching to break free from the stereotypical formula.
Suresh, ‘Blade’ Shankar, Sivaji, Sanjana Singh, Vishalini and Iman (a television programme host) play significant roles in the film which also has filmmaker Venkat Prabhu romancing actress Iniya in a ‘guest appearance’.
Vijay Ulaganath is the cinematographer of the film which has music by Kannan. The trio of Na Muthukumar, Madhan Karky and Vasuki Bhaskar has penned the film’s lyrics. Kalyan and Anvar have jointly choreographed the dance sequences in the film while Dileep Subbarayan has handled the stunt choreography.
The film would be hitting the screens in a few weeks’ time.
