This Week Tamil Cinema News

Audio release of 'Billa' today

The eagerly awaited audio release of Ajith's 'Billa' is taking place today.

'Billa' is co-produced by Ananda Pictures Creations and Iyngaran Films. The film has caught the attention of everyone, especially the music.

Vishnuvardhan's earlier films 'Kurumbu,' 'Atindhum Ariyaamalum' and 'Pattiyal' had music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and the same is true of 'Billa' too. Like the other filsm, the lyrics are by Pa Vijay. Fans eagerly look forward to 2 sings and both happen to be remix tunes.

"My name is Billa...' from the original film has been remixed for this new version. The other song is "vethilaye pottendi…" that retains the original pallavi but has new lyrics for the charanams.

There's a song Ajith sings in Malaysia's famous Murugan festival. The fans are expected to love this number too.

'Billa' will be released next month.

Case against 'Polladhavan'

The Thyagaraya College administration is filing a case against the director and producer of 'Polladhavan' for a one line dialogue.
There's a scene in 'Polladhavan' where Dhanush comes home drunk and his dad Murali slaps him. Murali points to Dhanush's friend and says he is a good guy. In response Dhanush says his friend's father paid 25 lakhs and got him a medical seat but "You just got me a BA seat in Thyagaraya College." This particular dialogue is the problematic one.

The lawyer notice states that Thyagaraya College is run with the ideology of service and is a boon to students in west Chennai and this dialogue that features in 'Polladhavan' is a slur on its reputation. Their demand is to remove the dialogue, the producer and director should apologise profusely and pay 50 lakhs in damages for causing mental distress.

What is in that piece of dialogue for demanding 50 lakhs in damages compensation?

It would be interesting to hear the explanation from the college!

Priya Mani is all smiles

Priya Mani had the opportunity to light the lamp along with Shahrukh Khan at the inauguration of the International Film Festival in Goa. This honor coming so early in her career has her beaming with happiness.

She is also happy that Shahrukh Khan spoke to her in a friendly manner. In fact on the dais, he has asked her is she was as nervous as he was. Priya Mani recalls with a smile, other such friendly exchanges with him.

"But making such conversation, he put me at ease so I would not feel nervous. He really is a gentleman. When I was talking to him, I felt I was on cloud nine, says Priya Mani with happy memories.

Because of her excellent acting in 'Paruthiveeran,' Priya Mani was chosen to represent the south at the film festival. It was director Ameer who brought out the talent in her but no one seems to have bothered about him.

It looks like one has to protest to get recognition for those behind the screen, who are not on the screen!

Neetu Chandra's debut in a Tamil film

'Yaavarum Nalam' features Madhavan as hero under the direction of Vikram K Kumar. Like 'Evano Oruvan,' this film has created expectations among the public for its novel narrative.

To use the word 'different' in Tamil films is meaningless. But 'Yaavarum Nalam' is an exception. Even the technicians used in the film are proof of that.

Music is by popular Bollywood trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Cinematography is by PC Sriram. The heroine is Neetu Chandra, who has acted in Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Traffic Signal.' Even though she hails from the north, she has Dravidian features. 'Yaavarum Nalam' should be a good debut for her in Tamil films.

At a cost of several lakhs, an apartment complex has been put up at Egmore. The whole film is shot in this set. Yes, this is a suspense thriller!

It's a long time since a decent thriller film has been released in Tamil. Hopefully 'Yaavarum Nalam' will fit the bill!
