Jeyam Ravi - an assistant director to Kamal’s film!
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 07, 2008

Jayamkondaan’s trailer and audio release function turned out to be a grand affair today with many luminaries from Kollywood attending the event. The trailer, audio cassette and CD were released by Abirami Ramanathan, Sarath Kumar and Mani Ratnam and was received by Kalaipuli G. Sekaran, KRG and Kamal Haasan respectively.


Jeyam Ravi, beginning his note with apologies for arriving late, said that he was scared to talk with some of the great people in Kollywood around, especially Kamal Haasan. He also revealed an interesting piece of news that he was an assistant director for Kamal-starrer Aalavandan. Recalling his experiences as an assistant director, the actor said that he would hide himself whenever Kamal was present on the sets. Speaking about Mani Ratnam’s simplicity, Ravi added that he used to be a snob during his earlier days as hero but changed his attitude on seeing the director’s behavior even after achieving so much in life.

Mani Ratnam’s speech was, however, as short and crisp as his dialogues. The director ended his speech with: “When Kannan invited me for this film’s pooja I attended it; when he invited me for the trailer and audio release I am here; I will also be there for this film’s silver jubilee function.”

Kamal Haasan, reacting to Sarath Kumar’s statement that Thygarajan is a very strict producer, thanked God that he did not ever get to see that side of his personality. Recalling his experiences with Thyagarajan while acting in Moonram Pirai, Kamal said that they would all go jogging together. He added that Thyagarajan would only choose the best in the industry for his projects. The actor turned nostalgic when he said that he enjoyed working with Balu Mahendra, as the working atmosphere would be very cheerful. The star, in his speech, thanked everyone for wishing him for the Dasavatharam release. Talking about director Kannan and his film, Kamal said that he must be busy with the final cutting work and added that Jayamkondaan has come out very well. It was evident from Kamal’s speech that the film’s cameraman, Balasubramaniam, is very close to him. The star did not lose the opportunity to commend him for doing a wonderful job.

After all these elaborate speeches, it is quite evident that the director is a very talented person. All that needs to substantiate this is the film itself. We are waiting for it!
