Arya: Alibaba a trendsetter
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 11, 2008

Alibaba’s audio release function, held at the Sathyam Theatres on June 11, 2008, turned out to be a grand affair. With Alibaba, brothers Vishnuvardhan and Krishna are expected to add their names in the ever-growing list of successful brothers in Kollywood, which includes Surya-Karthi, Selvaraghavan-Dhanush, Vishal-Ajay (Vikram Krishna), Jeyam Raja-Jeyam Ravi.


Moving on to the main event, the evening started off with the trailer being showcased to all those present at the venue. Krishna’s expressive eyes captivated the audience, as did his performance in the film. Of the two songs screened, Nenjil Athadi… was an item number that starred Mumbai model Naina. The other song starting with the words Krishna… Krishna… was picturised with the lead actor. Yet another song Hare Hare… Sambo Sambo… played in the background had the audience tapping their foot to the music. Director Neelan Sekar revealed that the song has not been filmed yet and said that he realized that it could turn out to be a chartbuster. The director also disclosed that he is working on a situation for that particular song so that it could please all sections of the audience.

Alibaba is a joint venture between producers “Pattiyal” Sekar and Sanjeev Kapoor. The evening witnessed some lighter moments when producer “Pattiyal” Sekar jocularly remarked that he found it difficult to pinpoint any one single person to make the release. Following this, every VIP present was requested to get on stage to release the audio.

Speaking at the event, Arya said that he knew Neelan Sekar right from the days when the latter worked as an associate director in Pattiyal and Arindum Ariyamalum. Predicting that Alibaba would prove to be a trendsetter, the actor added that Neelan Sekar was a focused person and is known for his honesty and sincerity. Arya also disclosed that he knew Krishna very well.

Director Dharani while recalling his first meeting with Neelan Sekar at the editing suite said that the latter seemed to be highly talented. His talent is evident from the trailer, said Dharani. The director also reiterated Arya’s statement about Neelan Sekar’s honesty and added that only that trait will ensure one’s victory in cinema. Dharani also commended Vidyasagar’s music composition and wished for the film’s success.

Bharath, during his speech, said that the Alibaba team was like a family to him. The actor disclosed that he met Krishna for the first time during the Pattiyal shooting and said that they both go to the same gym. Praising Krishna as well as Neelan Sekar, Bharath had good words for the latter too. He said that the director is a very jovial person and a gentleman.

Some of the VIPs that participated in the function include Thilakan, Rama Narayanan, Kaja Moihdeen, Sivasakthi Pandian, Arya, Bharath, Vishnuvardhan, Dharani, R. B. Choudhury, Mano Bala, “Jayam’ Raja and Alibaba’s heroine Janani.

Finally, Neelan Sekar ended the event by proposing the vote of thanks.
