Sultan, The Warrior on April 14, 2009
As reported earlier, the much-hyped animation film will release on April 14th, 2009. Earlier it was reported that the film will be made in 18 different languages. But now the filmmakers – Warner Bros. and Soundarya Rajinikanth (Ocher Studios) – have decided to make it in 12 languages.
The animation film with a lead role that is entirely modelled after Rajinikanth has been in the news ever since Soundarya announced it. This film was termed as Kollywood’s first step towards animation technology, which is at its best in Hollywood. The film uses motion-capture technology and latest 3D software to give a lifelike animated representation of the actors. Even the most minute facial expression of the actor can be shown clearly with this technology. The shooting is going on full speed in sophisticated animation labs fitted with machineries imported especially for this film.
The film also stars Vijaylakshmi (of Chennai 600 028 and Anjaathey fame) as Rajinikanth’s love interest. This is the first time an Indian film is reaching the depths of animation and 3D technology.
Though Bollywood has announced its arrival in animation section with its latest animation film Roadside Romeo, it would be Kollywood that will become the hub of animation movies once Sultan – The Warrior is released. So, on April 14th, 2009 comes Sultan – The Warrior, which will change Kollywood’s image forever!
