Madras Movie Preview
What is upcoming movie Madras all about?
Let’s ponder about the title first. why the name Madras? Initially the movie was named Kabali by it’s team but opted to change it to Kaali. But the makers again felt that the name Kaali might confuse the audience with yesteryear blockbuster Kaali (kaali a 1980 Smash hit by Superstar Rajnikanth.) As most of the movie was shot in north Madras the team finally zeroed in on the name Madras for the title of the movie. Karthi has also mentioned about the title of the movie in his facebook page.
Madras is an upcoming Tamil drama film directed by Ranjith and produced by Studio Green. The film stars Karthi and Catherine Tresa in the leading roles with Santhosh Narayanan composing the film’s music. Karthi is the only popular name in the film, while the rest of the actors are new to the screen. This is to lend authenticity to the film.
Karthi has shed considerable weight to fit the role he plays in the movie. He plays a IT professional role who plays football part-time. He portrays a typical north madras guy in the movie. After playing many urban oriented roles karthi has opted for an image makeover. He says Madras will be a milestone in his cinema career and the action sequences in the movie will be a talk over.
Music director Santosh Narayanan is elated when discussing about the movie. He says Ranjith the director gave him a break through his Attakathi. Working again with a director who shares a good rapport with you is always good for the music says Santosh.
There are seven tracks in Madras album. The title song ‘Madras’ sung by Hariharasudhan and Meenakshi Iyer is catchy. We have also introduced new lyricist Uma Devi who has written the song “Naan Nee” sung by “Nenjukkulae” fame Shakthisree Gopalan.
Already the trailer of the movie has created quite a stir. Let’s hope Madras brings a magic to tamil cinema as that of it’s name.
