And Vikram, true to his word, has moved on from Shankar’s Ai to his next project almost immediately and that is Vijay Milton’s Pathu Ennarathukkulle, which also stars Samantha as the female lead.
Reports say actor Pasupathi too plays a pivotal role in this flick but we do not know what it is. But we do know that Jackie Shroff plays the baddie!
Now, here’s the new update on this project..
It has been ‘leaked’ that the movie may be inspired by the popular Hollywood franchise Transporter, which starred Jason Statham as the deadly, dangerous..well, transporter. This news comes from the fact that like it’s western counterpart, the Vikram movie too has some high octane car chases and blood pumping action scenes.
Also, Pathu Ennaruthukkulle, has a very diverse location map which has spots around the country. The crew are currently filming in Ladakh and Sikkim. This again parallels the Transporter movies.
The entire production work on this one has been very brisk and efficient so far, to the extent that the shooting should wrap up in a few weeks time. The release is slated for January 2015, which suggests some hefty post production work.
Imman is scoring the tunes for this film, which is being produced by none other than AR Murugadoss in association with Fox Star Studios. Simply the ARM name in a project indicates an entertainment value and a certain promise of mass appeal.
Unfortunately we’ll have to wait till next year to find out how things turn out in the end..
