Ambasamuthiram Ambani

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Tamil Comments

It's not that easy for a comedian to turn a hero and be on the top of expectation chart even for the second film. Karunas has managed to do what almost all the comedians couldn't do. His first film as a hero `Dindugal Sarathy' which was a remake of the Malayalam hit `Vadakkunokki Yanthram' was a winner at the box-office in 2008.

Armed with the confidence of being accepted if the story is good Karunas has come with his second film `Ambasamuthiram Ambani'. His first film dealt with the changing situations in the life of an ordinary looking man who marries a beautiful woman.

`Ambasamuthiram Ambani' is also about a simpleton who nourished his own dreams of making it good in life. After the demise of his parents, a villager comes to the city of Chennai with high hopes and big dreams to become a rich businessman like the Ambanis. But he wants to achieve success on fair terms only. This is the story in a nut shell.

Navneet Kaur who was last seen in Vijaykanth's `Arasangam' plays the female lead opposite Karunas. The comedy segments are handled by Livingston and the late Cochin Haneefa. Other important stars in the film are Kotta Srinivasa Rao, R.Sundarajan, Mayilsami, Oorvasi and Nirosha.

Apart from donning the lead role, Karunas is also the music director of the film. The above average success of his first musical `Rajadhi Raja' has encouraged Karunas to do for this home production also. Vairamuthu has written all the lyrics. A song about what is Chennai written by Kaviyarasu is very thought provoking they say.

`Ambasamuthiram Ambani' is written and directed by P. Ramnath, who worked with Karunas on his comedy tracks all through. Pulithevan, a former assistant to K.V. Anand is in charge of cinematography.

The film recently sparked off a pleasant debate as Sun Pictures took over. Even Karuna's first film `Dindugal Sarathy' was a Sun Pictures release which goes on to say about the content.

`Ambasamuthiram Ambani' is releasing on July 2.
