A feat indeed!


The conversation with filmmaker Suresh Krissna is naturally about his just-released `Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram.' Will it mark his comeback in Tamil? "When did I ever go, to come back?" he laughs. True. The maker has always been busy. If it's not Tamil, it's been Hindi or Telugu. "Keeping myself abreast with changing trends is probably a reason for my being busy continuously for two decades now. And of course, God's grace!" he continues. In Telugu, Krissna has the distinction of directing father Mohan Babu and also his son Vishnu. And now in Tamil after his tryst with Rajinikanth in `Baadsha,' it's son in law Dhanush's turn in `Parattai ... '


For Vikram fans

`Bheema,' directed by Lingusamy, is all set to take Tamil cinema by storm.

The unit has just returned after canning a couple of song sequences in Switzerland.

The highlight on location was Vikram's birthday (April 11), when he surprised the crew with gifts, according to each of the 27-member crew's taste! Incidentally, if things work out as scheduled, `Bheema,' could well be a bonanza for Vikram fans this summer.



Quiet Please!

Filmmaker Vasanth is busy with the editing of `Saththam Podadhey,' when you catch up with him. "The talkie portion is over. Only the songs remain to be shot. I'm leaving for Mumbai tomorrow. Yuvan Shankar Raja is the composer and we're recording a song with Adnaan Sami. The songs have come out very well and so has the film," says a very enthusiastic Vasanth. `Saththam _' has Prithviraj and Padmapriya in the lead. Nitin Sathya, who's done a few small roles till date, has a solid part to play in `Saththam _' "It should be a major break for him," comments Vasanth.


Phone connection?

From `Poovae Poo Choodavaa' to `Karpoora Mullai,' he has assisted Fazil. He was the storywriter of Satyaraj's, `Brahma.' Now K. Panneerchelvam takes off as director with `Thollaipaesi.' The title suggests humour. "It's a family drama," says Panneer. Priyanka of `Veyil' fame, plays heroine with two other Mumbai faces joining her. Vikramaditya is hero. "The producers, Blue Waters Movie Makers, have been very co-operative. `Nizhalgal' Ravi has done a great job," Panneer informs. "And composer Santhakumar has come out with some wonderful songs. He was my classmate," smiles Panneer.
