It’s official now. AVM came up with
an announcement on Friday, the 10th of May
on the release date of its next Magnum Opus
production - Sivaji.
The worldwide release date has been announced
as 31st May.
Generally, expectations soar high where Shankar's
movies are concerned - it just got bigger
Sivaji will be AVM Productions' 168th movie. With Sivaji,
Rajini's will be completing his century in Kollywood.
Another interesting fact is, this movie is AVM-Rajini
combo's 9 th venture together. Incidentally this is Shankar's
8th movie, which happens to be his lucky number.
If you suppose Rajini-Shankar-AVM combination is big enough,
then think again. Because all the biggies in their respective
fields of expertise have worked for Sivaji. Camera by
KV Anand, art direction by Thotta Dharani, editing by
Antony, dialogues by Sujatha, music by AR Rahman, lyrics
by Vaali, Vairamuthu, Na Muthukumar and Pa Vijay and stunts
by Peter Haynes just to name a few.
AR Rahman's hard work seems to have obtained the desired
results. As Sivaji's songs, which are repeatedly broadcasted
by all radio stations, are now the talk of the town. The
movie's BGM and re-recording, which have come out exceptionally
well and far more superior have been done at London and
Czech Republic's capital Prague.
Stunt master Peter Haynes' fight scenes have been made
aiming at perfection. KV Anand has used the latest technology
"Super 35 and 4K." It is the first time that
4K technology is being used for a Tamil movie. Sivaji
will also be the first Tamil movie to have more number
of prints than ever before. According to the press release
every teeny weeny bit of detail is taken care of.
