The Veyil director’s second offering is finally here. We were coming to a point when almost everyone was forgetting that such a movie was due for release. But, here it is and we will be pleased and curious to see how Vasantha Balan lives up to the huge promise that he showed with his debut venture.

Veyil was an unforgettable experience for all Tamil cinema lovers. It was also a proud moment when the movie was appreciated at many international film festivals. So, why did it take such a promising and talented director so long to release his second film? Well, the film industry can be a tricky place to be and production issues are said to be behind the delay of this film which was supposed to be out in early 2009. However, better late than never. So, we have Angadi Theru hitting theaters this Friday.

Angadi Theru marks the return to the silver screen of not only Veyil director Vasantha Balan, it also brings back a young actress who made a huge impact with her debut in 2007. All of you might still remember the impact that ‘Kattradhu Tamil’ created. Anjali, the
  Angadi Theru
heroine of that hard hitting offbeat venture managed to create a name for herself as an actress with potential. Now, more than two years after Kattradhu Tamil, we will get to see her again through Angadi Theru. It is not usual for successful debutante heroines to hang around for so long without any release. But, Anjali’s move perhaps shows that she is persistent and is willing to make the right choices. Angadi Theru will feature Mahesh as the male lead opposite Anjali.

A highlight of Angadi Theru will definitely be its music. There are very few occasions in Tamil cinema when two independent composers have tuned songs for a movie. Angadi Theru is one of the rare few. Vijay Anthony and G.V. Prakash Kumar have tuned 2 and 4 songs respectively for Angadi Theru. The songs definitely lean more towards melody and softer feelings, an indication of the film’s nature perhaps. Vasantha Balan’s eye for good music had been evident even in Veyil with songs like ‘Uruguthe’ and Veyilodu Vilayaadu’. We can definitely hope for some well shot and visualized songs in Angadi Theru too.

Angadi Theru will be a closely watched release in Kollywood because it will be a touchstone of sorts for its director who promised a lot with his debut. Whether Veyil was a flash in the pan or not will be decided by Angadi Theru. Let’s hope that Angadi Theru sustains the momentum created by Veyil for its maker. Tamil cinema needs directors like Vasantha Balan to keep delivering good cinema on a regular basis.
