at the audio release for the film Aadatha
Aatamellam, the person who caught everyone's
attention was Jenny Jasmine, the pretty,
young sister of the versatile actress, Meera
Jasmine. Dressed elegantly in a yellow sari,
Jenny looked demure and beautiful, much
like her sister!
Aadatha Aatamellam, a film directed
by Azagar, with music by A R Rahman’s
sister, AR Reihana, has Ravi Ganesh
and Jenny Jasmine in the lead.
Veteran director Balachander, who
graced the occasion with his presence,
congratulated the new team and said,
"Nowadays, films by young directors
do very well at the box office,
unlike the olden days.
In fact, forty years back, when I started
out as a director, I was the only young
director of the time. Everyone else were
senior directors. Today however, the trend
is very different and a lot of young directors
are aspiring to become successful filmmakers.
The recent film, Chitthiram Paesuthadi is
a case in point, and I congratulated Mishkin
for his efforts. Ulaganathan too, became
very famous by that one single gana song.
In fact, only after listening to that gana
song, have I come to enjoy them now as well.
Today, this might be the trend, but tastes
keep changing, and I know this is all a
cycle. There will again be a time when melody
songs will be back in fashion," he
said, in a philosophical speech.
present at the event were director
Durai, Gana Ulaganathan, Chintamani
Murugesan, Bharathy, etc. Despite
that, it was Jenny who literally stole
the show with her presence. This film
marks her debut into the industry,
and we would think, considering the
reception the audio release has got,
that Jenny sure has success awaiting
her. The director of the film has
worked with talented directors like
Selvaraghavan and Susi Ganesan, and
this film is said to revolve around
the brother-sister relationship, with
Ravi Ganesh playing Jenny's younger
brother in the film.
