Vasu opens up about Kuselan: all that you wanted to know
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 19, 2008

News about Kuselan has been hard to come by. We have had to be content by and large by location reports that were filtering in every now and then. But we never got to know the inside details of the movie, even stills were not released regularly, something that is unusual for a P. Vasu movie. In a press conference

Director P. Vasu

on Wednesday Vasu was back to his ways of being generous with information about his movie. He said that he has never held back news or stills about his movies but had to adopt a rather strict method with Kuselan due to certain circumstances. However the period of secrecy is now over and Kuselan the movie is set to create waves.

In the first major news he gave out during the evening was that the shooting for Kuselan has been wrapped after a schedule of 82 days. Almost 75% of the entire movie was shot within the Ramoji Rao Film City with the rest being canned in outdoor locations which included Udumalpettai, Aleppey etc. The movie has now moved onto its post-production stage. Dubbing has been completed and re-recording is slated to commence by Monday. The computer graphics work of the movie had been going on simultaneously with the shooting and is now complete, it took nearly 50 days. This suggests that Kuselan will have some amount of special effects, maybe in the songs. The music release, the first major Kuselan related event since its launch, has been set for the 30th of June at the Royal Meridien Hotel in Chennai. Leading figures from the Tamil and Telugu industries will be taking part in the event.

Giving more details about the making of Kuselan, P. Vasu said that both the Tamil and Telugu versions have been shot identically, i.e, the camera angles, shot taking or other details have not been changed for any version. They had shot both the versions simultaneously, one shot after the other, thus cutting out any time lag. That explains how a bilingual could be completed in just 82 days. This is testimony to P. Vasu’s rich directorial experience.

Dispelling doubts about Superstar making just an effective cameo, P. Vasu said that the movie will have everything that Rajinikanth fans expect, the style, the punch dialogues, the rich songs, the fights and everything else. No Rajini fan will have to leave the theater feeling disappointed. Rajini’s role in Kuselan is much more than just a cameo, it is a role with equal importance as of the central character and will appear at various points in the movie. Speaking further Vasu added that it has always been his habit to include a song that extols the virtues of labor, (remember the Devuda Devuda song in Chandramukhi) and this time too the tradition will be followed with Rajini featuring in a song that speaks about the contribution of each and every technician beginning from the light boys in the making of a movie. This is a special, considering that Tamil cinema celebrates 75 years this year. Vasu was also lavish in his praise for G.V.Prakash saying that he had done a wonderful job both with the music and the background score, something worthy of the A.R.Rahman legacy. Even the Superstar was reportedly astonished at the young man’s talent and maturity that belied his age. We will know for sure on the 30th.

On the production front, Pyramid Saimira has bid 60 crores for the rights of Kuselan which is a very positive sign. Talks are between Pyramid and Kavithalaya and the deal is expected to be sealed soon. If everything falls in place, Kuselan will hit theaters before the end of July, that’s less than a month away. So, gear up for another big celebration after the Dasavatharam euphoria.
