Stargazing

Ayya’s story


The life of Vaikuntasami, the man who preached philosophy, religion and social justice 175 years ago and who is worshipped in many areas of the South, particularly Nagercoil, is being made into a film — Ayya Vazhi. Raja, a ne w face, plays the lead. For Anbazhagan, whose directorial debut was with the Murali-starrer Kamaraj, Ayya Vazhi will be the second film. A lot of study is going into the choice of locations, because they wish to present Nagercoil as it was in those days. Bhagavathi Sivanesan, a keyboardist with A. R. Rahman, is the composer. After recording a song for the film, S. Janaki and K. J. Jesudas refused to accept payment because they were so taken in by the subject.
