Movie Previews

(Jai Akash, Sridevika, Vani)

The Shivashakti Pandian-Agathyan team, which gave the successful film 'Kadhal Kottai', which also earned an award at the national level, are teaming up together after a long gap for their new film, 'Ramakrishna'.

The film has Jai Akash as the hero, and paired with him are two new faces, Sridevika and Vani. The supporting cast has Vijaykumar, Charlie, Rohit, Muthukalai, 'Halwa' Vasu, Sabita Anand, Venkaiyabalan, Mano Chitra, Vaishali and Paravai Muniyamma. Stunt master Jaguar Thangam makes an appearance playing the villain in the film.

Aalankulam, near Tenkasi, was the location for the climax scene of the film. About 27 stuntmen, led by stunt master Jaguar Thangam, took part in the fight. Shot for 10 days, it has the hero warding off the villain and his henchmen with his skillful wielding of the 'silambu'. The scene was canned by cinematographer Rajesh Yadav.

A song was picturised at Kuttralam where 100 dancers took part with the led pair. Fast into completion, writer-director Agathyan says, "My 13 years' dream of making this film has come to an end!" Blending the rural and the urban milieu, it showcases Jai Akash as an action hero.

The film has music by Deva and lyrics penned by Agathyan who has also written the film's story-screenplay and dialogue apart from directing the film. Editing is by Lancy Mohan, sets by Mohan Mahendran and dances choreographed by Shivashanker, Sampathraj and Ajairaj.
