Engal Anna

(Vijaykant, Namita, Swarnamalya)


With his recent releases not doing well at the box office, Vijaykant has gone for a proved subject this time. His new film, titled, 'Engal Anna', is the remake of the successful Mammootty-Ramba starrer 'Chronic Bachelor'!

Here Vijaykant is paired with Namita from the Telugu films. Produced by his home banner, 'Andal Azhagar Cine Combines', the film is directed by Siddique, who had directed the original version.

The film centres on the life of a businessman whose bitter experiences in his early days had made him stand alone in life and decide to remain a bachelor. The hero has this ongoing feud with his neighbour who has usurped his property.

How he helps out all those around him, settles scores with his tormentors and gets back the property forms the rest of the tale. Some crucial scenes were filmed at Vasan House, Chennai, on Swarnamalya, who plays the hero's sister, and Prabhu Deva.

Also present on the scene were Vijaykant and Namita, Anandaraj, the villain of the piece, and Vadivelu, who plays the hero's cook-cum-driver.

The supporting cast has Pandiarajan, Indraja (who'd played the same role in the original) and Sabita Anand. Namita plays a colleger, who comes to stay next door to the hero and brings about a change in him.

This film is also Swarnamalya's return to the screen after her marriage. "I saw her in Alaiypayuthe and felt she suited the character," says Siddique.

The film has music by Deva, cinematography by Anandakutan, stunt choerography by Rocky Rajesh and editing by T R Sekhar-Gowrishanker and sets designed by Suchitramani.

Says Vijaykant, "It's a family story, with humour and sentiment weaved in. There is some suspense too. It's a total family entertainer which an entire family can watch without embarrasment." The movie is scheduled for Pongal release and released...... :Ksp:
