Maddy musings


LAST SUNDAY was Madhavan's birthday and he spent the day quietly with his wife Saritha in a London restaurant before flying off to Switzerland to complete two remaining songs for AVM's "Priyamana Thozhi". Maddy never had it so good — with the best of banners and directors and a reputation in the trade of being a safe bet at the box-office. But one thing that is nagging him is the release of "Nala Damayanthi" followed immediately 21 days later by "Priyamana Thozhi". According to Madhavan, the ideal gap should be at least 100 days.

In "Nala Damayanthi", he plays the role of a Palakkad Iyer cook who is an expert `dosa' maker, and due to a quirk of fate, he lands up in Melbourne and is wooed by a Srilankan Tamil played by the Malayalee girl Geetu Mohandas. Said Madhavan: "It will be a fun film and Mouli, the director, has done a great job to make it a sparkling entertainer ideal for family viewing." The release of "Nala Damayanthi" has been postponed by a week, as Maddy keeps his fingers crossed.
