Filming of Thamizh-Uriyadi Vijaykumar project complete
Director Thamizh revealed that, " The film is set in a village and the local body election that takes place there goes on to affect the families that live there.”
Vijaykumar, who shot to fame with his acting/directorial debut in Uriyadi, is starring as the lead in director Thamizh’s upcoming film. The yet-to-be-titled film is the second venture for Thamizh, who previously turned heads with his directorial debut Seththumaan. The film is produced by Aditya under his banner Reel Good Films.
The makers of the film had just announced that after sixty-two days of shooting, the principal photography had finally been finished. In an exclusive interview with Cinema Express, director Thamizh revealed that “The film talks about how politics affect the lives of people and their interpersonal relationships. The film is set in a village and the local body election that takes place there goes on to affect the families that live there.”
While talking about his decision to cast VIjaykumar as the lead, he said, “VIjaykumar is someone who has a lot of political awareness so he could easily relate to the political themes in the film. When I narrated the script to him, he really liked the story and was quickly on board.”
Despite its political commentary, the film also reportedly has action, romance, and other entertaining elements that are designed to appeal to a wider audience. The film stars Preethi Asrani (Ayodhi) and Richa Joshi as female leads while Dhiliban (Vathikuchi), George Mariyan (Kaithi), and Paval Navaneethan (Vadachennai) are playing supporting roles in the film.
Govind Vasantha, most known for his work in 96, is composing the music for the film while Mahendran Jayaram handles cinematography and National Award Winner C S Prem Kumar takes care of the editing.
Writer Azhagiya Periyavan, along with Thamizh and Vijaykumar has reportedly worked on the dialogues for the film. The team is yet to announce the trailer and release plans for the film in the next few months.
