Wednesday, April 2, 2008 • Tamil Comments

Kamal Haasan’s ‘Dasavadharam’, which is expected to be a different experience on celluloid for the fans, critics and the general public, has been a unique experience for the director as well. K.S. Ravikumar, who has handled almost all the leading stars in the field and has given number of hits in his career, feels that nothing would match ‘Dasavadharam’ in its grandeur and novelty.

Budget wise, the film is ten times higher than any film K.S. Ravikumar has done so far. Cast wise, the film demands working with more North Indian and foreign technicians. Since the film is to be released in Hindi and Telugu simultaneously, he needs to get inputs from the perspective of those languages.

As far as technicians are concerned, the film has roped in many technicians from Hollywood. Around 45 persons came from the US and they trained our local technicians, inform the director. For the action sequences, different equipments and special frames were used.

Bryan from Los Angeles was brought in for the visual effects of the movie. Ravikumar says that Bryan has almost become like a South Indian now. “He can't live without Idly, Vada, and Pongal”, he adds with laugh.
