Behindwoods review board

Direction: Selvaraghavan
Music: GV Prakash Kumar
Production: Dream Valley Corporation
The time has almost come, Aayirathil Oruvan is finally here. More than 2 years in the making, a four fold increase from the originally planned budget and many obstacles later, Aayirathil Oruvan will grace theaters as the first big budget extravaganza of Kollywood in 2010. But, that is not the only first that Aayirathil Oruvan will be claiming. It is perhaps the first movie in Tamil to be built around the concept of a fantasy adventure which reportedly involves a treasure hunt, fights with tribals along the way, nights in the desert, time travel to visit the ancient kings of our lands and many more such fascinating things that may change the way Tamil cinema is perceived by audiences all around the world. Going by Selvaraghavan’s nature and the film’s trailers, it would be risky to guess as to what exactly the movie is all about. We will leave that for you to find out in theaters.

What took Aayirathil Oruvan two years in the making? Well, going by industry reactions upon seeing the trailer, two years or even more is perfectly justified for making such a grand production. That brings us to perhaps the biggest surprise of Aayirathil Oruvan, that being the fact that the producer of the movie, Ravindran, is having his first

experience of tinsel town. The travails that he had to face through the two plus years in which the film has been in production have already been elaborated upon and praise has been lavished upon him for making a movie of this scale possible.

The tremendous faith that the producer has in his team can be gauged by the fact that he did not back out from the project even after the budget that was initially planned at 7 crore shot to a final figure of 32 crores. For a movie that has a rookie youngster doing only his second movie in the lead, this is a huge figure. But, calling a guy a rookie after a movie like Paruthiveeran might be wrong which is why Karthi is being hailed as the next big thing in Kollywood. Aayirathil Oruvan will be crucial to his fortunes as a box office star because it is his first release in 3 years. Other stars of the movie, Reema Sen and Andrea too will be having their fingers crossed. They too are having releases after a long gap. Both ladies have already grabbed their share of the limelight by looking ravishing in the rushes. It will also be a delight to watch Parthiban on screen after quite a while in a role that has till now been kept a mystery. Young composer G.V. Prakash whose tracks have hit the right notes with the youth too will be counting on Aayirathil Oruvan as his ticket to the big league.

Overall, Aayirathil Oruvan carries huge expectations, both from the audience and the industry. The industry in particular will be keenly following the film to decide whether films of this genre are viable propositions in Kollywood. Releasing during the festival season of Pongal, it is sure to get off to a rocking start after all the months of waiting. Hope you all are pepped up to catch the biggest festival release in theaters and let us also pray that the latest news about some legal hassle doesn’t materialize into something bad.
