Behindwoods review board
Starring: Sarath Kumar, Namitha, Sandhya Shetty, Farzana
Direction: Dinesh Kumar
Music: Vidyasagar
Production: RSK Pictures
This week it is Namitha again at the box office and that makes it the third time within a span of one month. This time around, the lady is paired with Sarath Kumar. The movie is Sarath Kumar’s magnum opus 1977. Double roles are not new to this actor. He has perhaps donned the most number of double roles in the film industry and his specialty is father-son duos. This formula has given him many a hit over his long career and Sarath is back at it
again when his hold at the box office seems to be waning a bit.

1977 will not be any routine double act by Sarath Kumar; we will be seeing him in 6 different get ups, with three different heroines with the story taking us from India to Malaysia over two eras. In fact, 1977 might be one of the most expensive films in Sarath Kumar’s career. Though much has not been revealed about its storyline, we know for sure that the movie will be a thriller with plenty of high adrenalin pumping actions and liberal doses of glamour provided by the lead ladies.

The highlight of the film includes the introduction song shot with more than 500 junior artistes and dancers, the power-packed gun fight between Sarath Kumar and 40 baddies, a chase sequence that features some of Malaysia’s best known stunt artistes, a climax that has over 100 Malaysian police vehicles and personnel that was shot for 11 consecutive day and nights close to the Petronas twin towers. 1977 also includes a song that was shot lavishly on a set that was erected at a cost of Rs. 40 lakhs.

Literally, the producer has not spared any expense to make the film a rich and engaging fare. Mumbai-based model Sandhya Shetty makes her debut and is set to add to the oomph factor. Farzana too will make her presence felt, not to forget Namitha who has an introduction scene devoted to her. Sarath Kumar has made it clear that the film is purely for entertainment purpose and hence it has no political overtones. The movie is a bilingual with a simultaneous Telugu release.

Scripted and directed by Dinesh Kumar with music by Vidyasagar, 1977 looks good to end Sarath Kumar’s hit drought at the box office. We will know this Friday.
