'Chennai 600028' came across as a breath of fresh air in a dawdling Tamil Film Industry. The whole team that worked for the success of 'Chennai 600028' got tremendous accolades.
The team is at it again making the film 'Saroja' which has already created lots of expectations. The director of the film Venkat Prabhu says, 'the story is about three extraordinary events that take place in an ordinary day and all of the action pertain to one day'.
The director's cousin Saravanaraj has been involved with the choreography of the song sequences and the likes of 'Dhost Bada Dhost' and 'My Life' have come out in a stunning manner.
Director Venkat Prabhu seems to have a fascination for events that take place after sunset. Testimony to this is the fact that out of 75 days of shooting, 55 days were shot at night. Probably because the whole movie revolves around the events that take place in one day.
The editors of the film Praveen KL and Srikant NB are reportedly working their hearts out and Venkat Prabhu is mighty happy with the way things are shaping.
'Praveen KL and Srikant NB are names that'll take the industry by storm in the future' opines the director. Of the one lakh and thirty thousand feet of film with which the movie has been shot, about thirteen thousand feet have been edited. The duration of the film is expected to be about 2 hours and 20 minutes.
A special mention has to be made about the way the song 'Cheeky....Cheeky' has been edited. Fast cuts in a youthful and spontaneous way has been the necessity and the editors have done a beautiful job. Yuvan who features in the song has been showcased with a new approach a la joyous Harlem jives.
'Saroja' will be a wonderful entertainer as all the elements that go into making a success has been religiously followed. The best and most effective element is of course HARD WORK.
'Saroja' will grace theaters from August 15.
