First look of Harish Kalyan's LGM is here
The makers are looking for a theatrical release sometime in June or July
The first look poster of LGM (Let's Get Married) was released by the makers on social media on Monday. Directed by debutant Ramesh Thamilmani, the film is bankrolled by cricketer MS Dhoni along with his wife Sakshi Dhoni, under their production house Dhoni Entertainment.
Speaking to Cinema Express, Ramesh who has previously authored graphic novel Atharva – The Origin featuring Dhoni as a mythological superhero said, “I had worked in the novel, during which I had chance to interact with Sakshi Dhoni mam. The core concept was given by Sakshi mam and I started to develop the story. We started to work on this sometime last year and they decided to back the project.”
According to the director, LGM will be a family entertainer, with a dose of feel-good element. “It is a trip based romantic comedy. The film is primarily based on the three characters, Nadiya plays Harish’s mother, while Ivana plays the female lead. The film revolves around these three characters. LGM also stands for the initials of the main characters, Leela (Nadiya), Gautham (Harish Kalyan), Meera (Ivana).” Apart from them, the film also stars Yogi Babu and RJ Vijay.
Ramesh adds that they were looking for a young male and female lead, while the mother character should be refreshing with a tinge of “attitude”. The film went on floors in January and currently in the last leg of shooting. It was filmed in various locations of southern India. The technical crew consists of cinematographer Viswajith Odukkathil who shot Hridayam in Malayalam, and Love Today editor Pradeep E Ragav handling the edits.
Doubling up as music director as well, Ramesh mentions, “There will be around five songs, most of them montages. There are melodies, party songs, and all other varieties.”
On working with Dhoni once again, he says, “They have become more like family and it feels like own project rather than doing a film for another production house. They give a quite friendly and no-pressure atmosphere, at the same time more concerned about the project."
The makers are looking for a theatrical release sometime in June or July. “We are currently working on the CG and VFX works,” he signs off.
