Aravaan – Tamil Movie Preview
‘Angaadi Theru’ is one rare breed – a blend of quality cinema and commercial success! And, 2006 flick ‘Veyil’ had had already joined that league! Credit goes to the acclaimed director Vasanthabalan. And, he is now ready with his next, a better and bigger project, the magnum opus ‘Aravaan’!
‘Aravaan’ is another proud addition in the list of movies that are made with a story adapted from Tamil literary. Yes, the film is an inspiration of the novel ‘Kaaval Kottam’ written by Su. Venkatesan. The film’s story is adapted from a miniscule part of the novel telling about the culture, lifestyle and love of our old Tamil people who lived in Madurai during the period of 18th century.
Actor Aadhi has come as a perfect fit for this robust and rugged muscle man role. It is said that Vasanthabalan picked him up for the role having enormous confidence on his talents and looks – his height and sharp nose! Aadhi’s dedication and honesty to his character has supported him in delivering a powerful performance.
And, Pasupathy does not require any intro to his acting talents! This versatile actor has come out with yet another superb show of talents under Vasanthabalan, after ‘Veyil’!
Dhansika, Archana Kavi, Kabir Bedi, Karikaalan, Singam Puli and Vijay Chander have all lent their big cooperation to Vasanthabalan in those prominent roles. In spite of being cameo appearances, the roles of Bharath, Anjali, Shweta Menon and Shruti Prakash will make a big impact our the minds.
Singer Karthik is debuting as a music composer with this film. His background score and tunes are a major plus for the film! The audio launch was held at Anna Centenary Library, Chennai with K. Balachander, Mani Ratnam and A R Rahman gracing the occasion.
Siddharth’s camera work was a big support for Vasanthabalan’s script by filming the tough terrains, barren lands and also the deep woods.
Vijay Murugan’s Art direction, which forms the perfect backdrop for this epic drama, brings out the period of 18th century to your eyes. Editing by Praveen K L and N B Srikanth is said to have helped the film maintaining the pace of the film.
It is learnt that the film crew had to scout for places where there is no influence of present day modern life. Only after a long and hard hunt the crew could find some places and held their shoot in the interior places near Melur, Tenkasi and Tamil Nadu – Kerala border. Kudos to producer T. Siva! If it is not his Amma Creations Vasanthabalan’s script would not have come this far, and this good!
‘Aravaan’ is being scheduled to get its release this year end.
