Maattrraan movie expectation


With Maattrraan, K V Anand is collaborating with Suriya again after the successful Ayan that also catapulted Anand into the big league directors. With a very interesting premise of a conjoined twins (something that Charulatha hastily introduced to us in the form of female siblings a few weeks ago), Maattrraan will seek to explore the action thriller genre Suriya and Anand harnessed before in Ayan.

In such movies with unusual premises, it is necessary that convincing visual effects are in place so as to optimize the viewing experience. VFX of the movie has been supervised by Srinivas Mohan under whose guidance the crew went to the US for special facial scanning. Given Anand’s oeuvre it’s expected that the movie will portray the case of conjoined twins convincingly. Besides, since Maattrraan is also the first Indian film to use the performance capture technology so the odds are for it.

Nothing about the plot other than the fact the movie is an action thriller is ever revealed to the media. Anand has been successful in keeping the story under the wraps so speculations about the movie having been inspired by the Hollywood flick Stuck on You will have to wait until it’s actually released. The movie has an interesting mix of actors including Kajal Aggarwal, Vivek, Sachin Khedeker, Tara and the contemporary dancer and star Isha Shervani in a cameo role.

Maattrraan went on floors mid last year and has travelled all over the word including all over India (especially Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Gujarat), the Balkan region, Latvia, United States and Norway. Said to be Suriya’s biggest release, Maattrraan is simultaneously being released in Telugu in a dubbed version titled Brothers. Karthi has been roped in to dub for the brother character in the Telugu version as he is fluent in the language.

Harris Jayaraj’s has tuned Maattrraan’s five songs with Sony Music owning the rights of the audio. Maattrraan’s songs are penned by Na. Muthukumar, Madhan Karky, Pa. Vijay, Thamarai and Viveka. The audio release was held in Singapore and the audio was subsequently well received. Produced by AGS Entertainment and distributed by Eros International and Gemini Film Circuit, Maattrraan is releasing this weekend amidst huge expectations.
