A film's destiny starts with its title. A racy title always catches attention and an apt example is `Odipolaama', a film starring Parimal, actress Sangeetha's brother and Sandhya in lead roles. The movie is directed by Kanmani, who earlier wielded the megaphone for 'Aaha Ethanai Azhagu'.

"'Odipolaama' would be a romantic entertainer but with a difference. It is the story of two people who are not in love with each other but decide to elope. The movie narrates their travails and tribulations," the director says.

Throwing more light, he says, "I conceived the storyline long back and was waiting for a right opportunity to make it as a film. Parimal and Sandhya fit to their respective roles well. The movie has been shaped up in an interesting way."

The rest of the cast includes Vasundhara, Mahadevan, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Suman Shetty and Thambi Ramaiah. Produced by V Barani, the movie has music by D Imman and cinematography by Anji.

Says Parimal, "I come from a family with a strong filmi background. I grew up watching movies. So I had no hesitation whatsoever in accepting 'Odipolaama'. I am thankful to the support from my family members, especially my sister."

On the movie, he says, "All credits should go to director Kanmani. Each and every scene is interesting and it is all due to him. My thanks to Sandhya and other colleagues who helped me a lot as this is my debut movie."

On her part, Sandhya says, " `Odipolaama' will be an important movie in my career. The script is so gripping and my role has been given enough importance. It is not a run-of-the-mill kind of story, but a knot with so may twists and turns."

Expressing happiness that her sibling has entered tinsel town, Sangeetha says, "I am proud that one more member from my family is in films. My brother needs all your blessings. I am hopeful that he will make it big."

She adds: "I am happy that Parimal has done a fine job. And I am aware that hard work always pays rich dividends. I wish not just my brother, but the entire team of `Odipolaama' a great success."

A major portion of the movie was shot in Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangkok. Being made in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously, 'Odipolaama' will hit the screens soon.
