`Aadukalam' is one of the most expected films in the first half of 2011. It is made by the rocking group that set new standards for urban realistic cinema with `Polladhavan' in 2008.
Except for the heroine the entire team of `Polladhavan' is at work in `Aadukalam'. The film was started with the title `Seval' but was renamed after knowing Director Hari had registered the title for a film with Bharath.
`Aadukalam' is said to be based on a true story which occurred in Madurai in the 1970s. Hero Dhanush plays a rustic character Karuppu and Tapsee Pannu plays an Anglo-Indian in the film. Sindhu Menon, Daniel Balaji, Kishore, Karunas and GM Kumar are also there. Srilankan Tamil writer V.I.S. Jayapalan has also donned a big role.
Set in backdrops of Madurai, the film revolves around the native group and its culture interwoven with a beautiful love story. According to the film's director Vettrimaran, Dhanush owns a one-legged rooster that wins all the cock-fight competitions hands down in the area.
GV Prakash has scored the music and the soundtrack consists of seven tracks including two rap numbers. The lyrics are written by Yegathasi, Yugabharathi, V.I.S. Jayapalan, Snehan and Yogi B. It is said that GV Prakash imported some instruments and sound systems from abroad only for recording some unique music in `Aadukalam'.
Dhanush rates `Aadukalam' as his best film so far and hopes very high on the film. Director Vettrimaran says this film will be poles apart from his first film.
There said to be two versions of `Aadukalam' in hand when the film sees its release. One will be a regular full version film and the other a Festival Cut which will run only for 100 minutes without the songs.
Produced by S. Kathiresan under Group Company, `Aadukalam' will be distributed by Sun Pictures which ensures running the first lap with ease.
