Fights and suspense form the backbone of `Don Chera.'
THRILLER: Ranjith and Susi Bala in Don Chera.
The place this time was different the inner ring road at Pattinapakkam, dotted with fishermen's huts. Ranjith and crew were busy shooting for Sivasankaralaya's `Don Chera.' "I just cannot afford to waste even a minute," said Ranjith. ``This film is a thriller with a beautiful knot, which will make the audience enjoy every moment of their stay in the theatre," he said revealing the plot. `Don Chera' is about a young boy who becomes a don because of circumstances. "This is a challenging role for me and I am working hard on the character. I hope my performance goes down well with the audience," he said.
Susi Bala who has done a couple of films plays Ranjith's sweetheart. The two meet at a brothel bringing about a turning point.
K. S. Saravanan, who has worked with various directors including Keyar and Vikraman, is making his debut. Said the director, "I consider screenplay as the back bone of any film. `Don Chera' will sure make it because it has all the ingredients of a good thriller. Ranjith has worked hard to prove that he can handle any role." According to Ranjith the chase inside the inner ring road will certainly make the audience sit up. ``The chase includes a gunfight. The fight at the Gemini Parsn complex will also be a treat to watch. Shot at night, the scene involved risks but I managed to survive," he explained.
Siva Manohar (who worked for "Puthumai Piththan") is in charge of cinematography. Prince (who worked with Harris Jayaraj as his key board player) has taken care of the music and editing is done by R. D. Annadurai. Sakthi Pandian is the producer.
