The return of the old master to the Tamil screen after a gap of nearly 6 years. The last time we saw a Bharathiraja movie was perhaps in 2002, it was Kangalaal Kaidhu Sei which marked Priyamani's debut in Kollywood. The movie was a crime based thriller, but contrary to all expectations that Bharathiraja's skills in the genre had generated, the movie had been a huge disappointment. Now, the director returns to the same genre with renewed energy. Will Bommalattam be a throwback to the heydays of Bharathiraja?

Set in the backdrop of the film industry, the movie revolves around a director being played by Nana Patekar who will be making his Tamil debut. It is certainly going to be a great experience to watch the intense actor portraying a character crafted by Bharathiraja. Kajal Aggarwal appears as an actress and Arjun plays a tough cop who has the assignment of investigating a murder that has taken place.

Bammalattam has been simultaneously made in Hindi, like the 1980s Sigappu Rojakkal was remade by Bharathiraja. Guess that explains the presence of Nana Patekar who has reportedly handled a character that showcases the blurring of lines between the real and the imaginary.

Another interesting fact about Bommalattam is that this was the movie that had to mark Himesh Reshammiya's Kollywood debut instead of Dasavatharam. The composer had scroed for this film much earlier than he had for Dasavatharam. But many factors delayed Bommalattam's progress and it took a rescue act to finish the movie and get it ready for a theatre release.

Now, all the uncertainty is over and the movie is ready to hit screens. The only uncertainty looms over whether Bharathiraja has been able to rediscover his magic touch that made him the master of the 80s. Will the thrill factor work?
