Four Frames


Hype and hoopla

"Sillunu Oru Kadhal," released yesterday, was one of the most eagerly awaited movies of the year. The film has been released four days before the marriage of Suriya and Jyothika, its lead pair. There is a lot of curiosity and hype around "the biggest ever star wedding in the history of Kollywood". In "Sillunu Oru Kadhal," Suriya and Jyothika play husband and wife, whose happy married life is disturbed when the hero's former lover resurfaces. Bhumika plays the other woman. Vadivelu and Santhanam take care of the comedy.

The music by A. R. Rahman is topping the charts. The film, directed by Krishna, is a breezy entertainer which opened big worldwide with approximately 207 prints.


Changing Tack

Malayalam actor Dileep is now changing tack and doing an action film "Don" with veteran director Shaji Kailas. The film, released for Onam in Kerala, opened in Chennai on Thursday. In the film, Dileep plays Unnikrishnan who due to circumstances becomes Salaam, the righthand man of Baba, a selfstyled godfather to the poor and needy. Gopika plays the female lead. Says Dileep: "I want to try out different genres to become a complete actor. That is the reason why I decided to take a break from comedy films and do this action entertainer."


Action Packed

Viveik Oberoi has been going through a rough patch and he needs a hit to salvage his career. Now Viveik and Sunny Deol are coming together in "Naksha" (Map), an action adventure, shot in the forests of Thailand and New Zealand. The film is directed by Sachin Bajaj and looks like an Indian version of "Indiana Jones." Viveik Oberoi is an archaeologist in search of a hidden treasure. He gets trapped by the villains. Sunny Deol, his elder brother, goes the forest in search of him, but Viveik refuses to come back till he finds the treasure. Sameera Reddy is the heroine and the music is by Pritam. The song "Shake it_," a sort of western-Bhangra mix, rendered by Suzzane De Mello and Kailash Kher, is on the charts.


Family Values

Veteran producer Satyajyothi Thyagarajan is back with "Emttan Mahan," which was released on Thursday. The film is directed by new-comer Thirumurugan, who became a household name after his successful serial "Mettioli" on Sun TV. "Emttan Mahan" is a family entertainer with some great melodies from Vidyasagar. The story is about a strict father played by Nassar, a loving mother played by Saranya and their son Bharath who revolts. Gopika and Gajala are the heroines and Vadivelu provides the comedy. Says Thirumurugan: "The film is about relationships and family values and I'm sure it will click with the masses."
