Come Pongal and Dhanush will lock horns with Vijay for the fourth time for a festival release. Aadukalam is director Vetrimaran's second movie with Dhanush after Polladhavan and has made everyone quite inquisitive about it. Aadukalam is produced by S Kathiresan and will be distributed by Sun Pictures. If Santhanam entertained audiences in Polladhavan, it is the turn of Karunas to tickle the funny bone in Aadukalam.

Aadukalam is about a Madurai-based youngster (Dhanush) who owns a one-legged rooster which very easily wins all the competitions. Aadukalam is based on a real life incident that happened in Madurai in the seventies. Apart from the main plot, Aadukalam also has a romantic portion with Dhanush falling in love with Taapsee Pannu who is an Anglo-Indian girl. The film was shot for more than six months in Thirunagar, Thirupparankundram and surrounding areas.

Dhanush is an excited man as he has repeatedly revealed that Aadukalam is his most exciting project as yet. He has taken lots of efforts to ensure he looks like a typical village guy and to get the Madurai slang right. Taapsee, on the other hand, is an exciting match for Dhanush. While Nayanthara was first expected to be Dhanush's pair, it was later speculated that Trisha will don the role. But since her dates with her Bollywood project clashed, the opportunity went to Taapsee Pannu who is a Delhi-based model and an engineer. She and her friends have developed an application for iPhone. The movie will also star Karunas, Kishore and Daniel Balaji, who starred in Polladhavan as well.

Art direction has been handled by 'Parthi Veeran' fame Jacky. Cinematography is by R Selvaraj. Late stunt choreographer Rambo Rajkumar has shaped the fight sequences. Director Vetrimaran has assured audience that Aadukalam will be entirely different from his first movie and belongs to a completely different genre.

The young versatile music director GV Prakash leaps high with his music. He has created a fine masterpiece. He has imported foreign instruments and sound systems for delivering unique and distinct musical addition to Aadukalam. The songs are already topping the charts like his earlier movies Pollathavan and Madrasapattinam with ‘Yathe Yathe’ hitting the top.

Once Aadukalam hits silver screens on Pongal, we will know if the team and Dhanush’s rooster make the flick to rule the roost.
