Cinematographer Balasubramaniem on Sivakarthikeyan's Seemaraja

Seemaraja is Sivakarthikeyan's next film that is releasing tomorrow, on account of Vinayagar Chathurthi. The film is directed by Ponram, and it stars Samantha, Soori, Simran and Napoleon playing important roles. While D. Imman is composing the music, Balasubramaniem is handling the camera. 

Talking to the press about the film, he said: "There were certain things that posed as a huge challenge. I had to remain conscious throughout Seemaraja shoot to avoid the stereotypic aspects. The reason is the fact that my erstwhile movies with Sivakarthikeyan-Ponram films (Rajini Murugan and Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam) belonged to rural backdrops with festive-like elements.

So by any chance, the colours, tones and backdrops could have been closely similar, but with Seemaraja, I had to keep my cognizance on alert. Surprisingly, the entire team – both the actors and technicians were much more firmly sticking to the same criteria than me. Both Ponram’s projection and Art director Muthuraj’s set works completely differed from their previous works as a team. In particular, the art work by Muthuraj owns a lot of contribution in keeping a great work by commuting us to different backdrops,"

He also added that, “Everyone in the team are so experienced, that they could understand what a cinematographer. To have such experienced actors like Sivakarthikeyan, Samantha, Simran, Soori and so on, it was so easy to work accordingly. 

We had to work with the high pressure of completing the film within the preplanned deadline, and there could have been more possibilities of any technician on the sets to get hard-pressed. But then, Sivakarthikeyan, Soori and others being sportive players remained as my stress busters. concluded Balasubramaniem.

Produced by RD Raja of 24AM Studios, this film is hitting the screens tomorrow. Early morning special shows have been planned and this is the third time in Sivakarthikeyan's career, that a film is getting a special early morning show.
