    New, an entertainer for all age-groups: S J Suryah

    Saturday, July 10, 2004
    He is a new generation film director, who lets his work (films) do the talking. Even after starting with a bang with his debut venture Vaali followed by Kushi, S J Suryah, a one-time associate of director Vasanth, stills maintains a low profile and dedicates his success to the Almighty and audience. He came in for praise not just in the Tamil film industry but also in Tollywood and Bollywood. His second film Kushi was remade in Telugu and Hindi and it won rave reviews. Now, Suryah has taken to acting in New which is releasing Friday. He not only plays the lead role in the movie, but also has taken care of both direction and production.

    The film, which is loosely based on Hollywood blockbuster The Big has actresses Simran and Kiran in important roles opposite Suryah. The movie was also made in Telugu as Naani recently.Suryah shares his thoughts about the movie, besides
    his future plans.

    What's special about New?

    The story is totally new. I play the role of a 28-year-old person in the movie, whose mind is still that of an eight-year-old. The story would be totally new to the Tamil audience and all artistes involved in the project have given their best. I hope the audience accepts the movie and gives a favorable verdict.

    How was it combining acting, direction and production in New?

    It was great experience for me. I never saw it as a burden. I enjoyed shooting every frame of my movie and everything went off well. It was also a great learning experience for me.

    Being the director, how would you assess yourself as an actor?

    I hope that as an actor, I did justice to the role. It was indeed a tricky character for me to perform. Having penned the script myself, I was confident that I would be able to bring out the right emotions needed for the movie. As a director, I was comfortable working with my hero (Suryah himself).

    Compare New with your earlier ventures Vaali and Kushi?

    New would be totally different from my earlier ventures. I never repeat any scenes in my movies. Vaali starring Ajith was thriller-cum-family drama, while Kushi with Vijay in the main cast, was a romantic entertainer. New is one step ahead and would be a commercial entertainer for people of all age groups from seven to 70.

    On A R Rahman's tunes in the movie?

    He is a master-composer. His tunes are really foot-tapping and catchy. The response from music buffs to the audio has been amazing. Especially the remix of evergreen hit Thotal Poo Malarum.
