Arya in a period film

Saturday, February 7, 2009 • Tamil Comments

Arya is mighty happy with the way 'Naan Kadavul' has opened across Tamilnadu. And now the latest news about Arya's future endeavor is that he would be part of a period film 'Madarasa Patinam' that is to be directed by Vijay (the man behind 'Kireedom' and 'Poi Solla Porom').

According to a press release issued by the producer of the film Kalapathi S. Aghoram, the film would be set in the year 1945. Audiences would get an opportunity to see British India. Extravagant sets to bring about the right kind of effect would be erected.

The script demands a foreigner to play the heroine and the film's think-tank is on the lookout for an appropriate actress. Though Vijay has directed just two films till now, he has shown audiences that he has the tenacity to come up with engrossing screenplays.

The talented cinematographer Nirav Shah who came out with some innovative camera work in 'Dhoom 2', 'Billa', 'Pattiyal' and 'Arindhum Ariyamalum' will crank the camera for this project too. G. V. Prakash has been appointed the music director.

Apart from Arya and the foreigner (yet to be fixed), the rest of the cast for 'Madarasa Patinam' include Nasser, VMC Haneefa, Bala Singh and many more.

It sure would be interesting to see a Tamil film set in pre-independence India.
