Aug 07, 2014

Fresh from Arima Nambi's success, Vikram Prabhu is all set to scale heights with UTV Motion Pictures produced Sigaram Thodu, directed by Thoonganagaram fame Gaurav. With D. Imman composing the songs, there is a chartbuster already ready. 

Vikram Prabhu is carving a niche for himself on being extra cautious about the type of films he's doing. Sigaram Thodu is one such film that touts to be a thriller based on a father-son relationship. Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, Sigaram Thodu's audio launch was nothing less, with the toast of the industry celebrating the musical day. There were two tracks performed live and also some song visuals along with the trailer played.   

The must-watch part of such audio lunch functions are the well-known personalities, famous for their witty speeches on and about the film. Vikram Prabhu in a petite semi formal blazer and the newcomer Monal Gajjar, playing the heroine of the film at her best choice of color, it was one gala event. Read below to know what exactly happened.  
Director Gaurav formally introduced his cast and crew to the crowd with thunderous applause for the ideal hero of the day, music director D. Imman. Lyricists Karky and Gana Bala exhibited their gratitude with Bala going to the extent of performing the whole song in his unusual voice. Executive producer Dhananjayan assured that they have come up with a quality product. Following are snippets of what the esteemed celebrities spoke on stage.  
Sivakarthikeyan - "I am nobody to get on stage and talk about this film, but Vikram Prabhu is a dear friend of mine I regularly communicate with him. Whenever I go down, he somehow makes it a point to call me and give me the right encouragement. We are all there Sivakarthikeyan, don't worry. Those words make my day"
Vijay Sethupathi - "Vikram Prabhu, you have already reached there. Sigaram Thodu will be another height for you. I loved the trailer. All the best for you and the entire team"
K.J Yesudas - The living legend has rendered a song for the film that is on the father-son relationship. "I believe, just like the rice you eat has your name written in it, the songs that you sing are also meant for you and decided by god long time back". Imman is a brilliant composer. I am so glad to have sung this song. wishes to the team"
Sathyaraj - "I play a cop dad in this film. Starting from Kadamai Kanniyam Kattupadu (KKK) I've been playing police officer roles. It was Kamal sir who saw a hero in me and made an authentic police story, KKK, for the first time. Coming to the producers, UTV Motion Pictures had a huge agreement for me to be duly signed. There were a list of ordinances that had to be signed stating, if the actor fails to be a good actor or if his/her voice is not decent enough to be dubbed there will be last minute changes made. I have been in the industry for 36 years and I have never come across such properly planned constructs for film shooting. On a funny note, just by using Thagudu Thagudu dialogue I'm what I'm now, dare not change my voice even if it's bad during the dubbing. I got the chance to act for the very first time by doing the Parasakthi dilalogue. Please make necessary changes to actors like us when you make agreements.
My brother Prabhu has been a little tight with Vikram Prabhu. After Ivan Vera Mathiri, I made a call to him and told, Vikram Prabhu has done a splendid job. Prabhu said, Vikram Prabhu's dance could have been better. Now you all saw the song visuals. Prabhu ? Care to appreciate your son now ? During Kumki I said, Vikram Prabhu, next Parasakthi is ready. Now let me tell you all, next Thanga Pathakam is ready. I thank Imman, the cinematographer and the editor for their amazing support. This heroine Monal. I have to tell you. What a beauty she is. When the songs were played, I winked at Prabhu. She looks gorgeous. 
Coming to the captain of the ship, Gaurav has the knack of handling equipment and being a task master. I was floored by Virumaandi's shot progressions. After Kamal sir, I can say, Gaurav is the best in the trade when it comes to technicalities. I wish this film all success"
Kamal Haasan - "Sorry that I had to come a little late. This is my family's function. I have almost stalled Uttama Villain's last two day shoot to attend this audio launch. Vikram Prabhu will very soon find a place for himself surpassing his family history. People who believe on genes, keep it yourself, it is hard-work that will take you places. Vikram Prabhu is progressing on a faster rate only because of his tireless efforts and nothing more. This film has to succeed. It means a lot to me"
K.S.Ravikumar - "More than attending the audio launch of my assistant's film, I rushed all the way from Bangalore to meet Kamal sir, since its been so long. I can congratulate my assistant whenever I want, but getting to see Kamal sir and all of my friends is what I'm kicked about. This film will be a sure shot hit. All the best to the team"
Dhanush - With the VIP theme track played in the background, Dhanush came onto the stage with high rounds of applause. Dressed in a dhoti, Dhanush started off with, 'Vikram Prabhu and me gym at the same place. Please don't ask me why I go there. With the burden of belonging to such a family, Vikram Prabhu is finding his place. That itself is a success by a huge margin. Prabhu sir, more than anything else, Vikram Prabhu is an amazing human being and Prabhu sir, your upbringing needs a special mention. My friend Vikram Prabhu, I'm here because of you and just for you"
Gaurav - "I'm a Kamal fanatic. I read anything that has something about him. When I grew up, all my walls had Kamal sir posters. My audio launch happening under his presence is a blessing. I have the world's greatest dad and Sigaram Thodu is a script very close to my heart. With Tom Cruise, sorry I call Sathyaraj that way, to play the father role, the story I had in mind just elevated to a whole new level. Vikram has it all in the genes. He is a remarkable actor who has tested the waters of humor for the first time. He will go a long way. With my cast and crew, I cordially request you all for your support and encouragement"
