Dasavatharam Movie Preview
With Dasavatharam already making hot waves in the tinsel town, any news about this movie is a welcome treat for all movie buffs. Brilliance, high-tech and just everything that you would expect out of a Kamal-starrer is what Dasavatharam is all about. Oscar films is producing this much-awaited flick with K. S Ravikumar directing this mega budget movie for Oscar Ravichandran. Leading heroines Asin and Mallika Sherawat grace the screen with their glamour and lend excitement to this action thriller.
True to the saying ‘variety is the spice of life’, Kamal Hassan has tried many an experiment with the look of his characters in the film. No actor in the movie industry has tried ten distinctive characters in the same movie. The ten roles are likely to be a brahmin priest, a dwarf, a scientist, a fighter, a black man, a tourist guide, an old woman, a beggar, a young lady and an emperor. Being a top hero who never shies away from experimenting, Kamal as he is fondly called, has himself penned the story of the film.
Dasavatharam has Himesh Reshammiya as the music composer and Devi Sri Prasad for the background score and the music is slated to be released on April 2008. Jackie Chan, the big name in Hollywood famous for his feats in martial arts, will launch the audio of Dasavatharam. The audio function is really going to rock the floor with celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Tollywood star Chiranjeevi, who have already accepted the invite.
Speaking about the budget, Dasavatharam has a whooping budget of Rs. 120 crores ( 25 million USD) set against Rajinikanth’s Sivaji released last year. The sets for the movie took up the major part of the budget with its stunning sets. The movie has a set designed like the white house in Chennai’s film city, a boat-race involving about 1000 boats and a palace has also been set up where napoleon appears as the emperor. There is also a scene depicting the Tsunami episode.
That said, if all goes as planned, then Dasavatharam will settle for nothing but the best!
