Music director James Vasnthan who is also a popular Television anchor is wielding the megaphone. The 'Pasanga' composer has started shooting his maiden directorial titled 'Vanavil Vazhkai' in Chennai. The film is touted as a campus musical.
However this will have something different from a regular feature film. Speaking about the project in an interview, James Vasanthan has said , "In our industry, we usually have a set of beautiful songs in a film and call it a musical. But in the West, a musical is a production in which the lead actors sing and act all by themselves. I'm directing a film which is a pure musical."
The shooting has commenced last week. The film stars a bunch of youngsters that includes college students and recent pass outs. The script has been written by James Vasanthan who says that the film is a feel good entertainer set around college culturals. Apart from writing the script and directing, James Vasanthan will be composing 19 songs for the film that will be a mixture of all genres including hip-hop and rock.
