The Making of Vettaiyadu Vilaiyadu

January 24, 2006

Vettaiyadu villaiyadu has been in the news ever since it was announced, for the right and - some wrong - reasons. Touted as the sequel to director Gowtham’s smash hit Kakka kakka, the film has been having a bumpy ride in production. Major portion of the film has been completed with shooting held in the USA and our own Singara Chennai. Some segments were recently shot in Madurai. The cop story is slated for release on Tamil New Year’s Day


Young Gowtham does not tire of singing paeans to Kamal Hassan’s legendary talent. He is extremely delighted with Kamal’s body language and mannerism as the brisk sleuth. Gowtham feels that Kamal is a walking talking motion picture academy and everyone can learn something new from him. Initially, the movie was planned to be shot in summer. But, after sorting out some problems, when they landed in the US for the shoot it was winter. It took five days for the crew to adjust to the local climate. Shooting went on at a hectic pace – up to 18 hours per day! There is a thrilling helicopter chase and the chopper’s pilot has worked earlier in famous projects like Spider Man, Independence Day etc. The film’s cinematography has captured the beauty of New York’s skyline at night.


Kamal has been lucky(once again!) to work with two beautiful ladies. He romances Jothika in the US and has Kamalini Mukherjee doing the rounds in the Chennai segment. Kamalini is just a couple of films old in Tamil and Telugu and she readily agreed to work in Vettaiyadu, only because it had Kamal.

Almost 70% of the film has been completed including two songs, which were shot in the US. Two more songs are likely to be shot here


Kamal & Jothika

The story line of the movie is quite interesting. Kamal is a police officer who is hot on the chase of a dreaded international criminal, whom he tracks down in the US. The film tells the obstacles faced by the hero in bringing the criminal to book and how he succeeds in his mission. Gowtham assures that the film has all commercial elements and the viewers would get to see a youthful Kamal in trendy outfits.

The film was launched by Kaja Moideen under his Roja Combines banner. Then he backed out after the suicide attempt and the project was taken over by Seventh Channel. Narayanan of the production house is confident that Vettaiyadu will be a blockbuster thanks to the story telling skills of director Gowtham, who has a finger on the pulse of the audience. Well, we are sure that Vettaiyadu will be one of the landmarks in Tamil cinema. © 2004 ; For advertising contact
