Kanden Kadhalai

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Tamil Comments

Love stories always come with a charm. If told beautifully, never had they failed to mesmerise movie lovers. 'Kanden Kadhalai', starring Bharath and Tamannah in the lead, may fall into this category.

A remake of blockbuster Hindi movie 'Jab We Met', the film directed by Kannan of 'Jayam Kondaan' fame is produced by Moser Baer and Blue Ocean Entertainment. Sun Pictures, known for its shrewd marketing strategies, has acquired the release rights.

Says director Kannan, "It is an entertaining movie and will be an instant hit with youngsters. A major portion of the movie was shot in Madurai and its adjoining areas. We erected a set resembling a Buddha temple and canned a song sequence on it."

The original version, directed by Imtiaz Ali, featured Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles. Imtiaz, who was the guest of honour at the music launch of 'Kanden Kadhalai', said during the event: "The mistakes I made in the original have been cleverly avoided by Kannan. I am sure that the Tamil version would make it big in the box office."

On the film, Bharath says: "These days, it's not easy to get a look at the complete script at the outset itself. Most often, while shooting, we don't even know what the next scene would be. But things are not the same in 'Kanden Kadhalai', thanks to director Kannan, who was ready with the full script even before the film could take off.'

Dhananjayan of Moser Baer says they decided to do the film in Tamil mainly because of its appealing theme. "Kannan and his team deserve kudos for their work," he says.

The movie is about Sakthi (Bharath) and Anjali (Tamannah). Sakthi, a down-to-earth unsuccessful young lad meets Anjali, a bubbly young girl with her own dreams and passions.

As their journey begin, they are thrown open to fun, frolic, pain and emotions. Mumbai model Sapan Saran plays the role of the second heroine while 'Silandhi' fame Munna plays another hero. The film has music by Vidyasagar.
