Ten heroines in one film
We have six heroines in Rajathi Raja; we have ten directors acting in Mayandi Kudumbattar; we have eight assistant directors acting in Kunguma Poovum Konjum Puravum; and now, we have ten heroines in one film!
In Ellam Avan Seyal, the Tamil remake of the Malayalam crime thriller Chinthamani Kolai Case, there will be ten important female characters. After quite a long time, Shaji Kailash, an eminent Malayalam director, is back in Tamil with this murder mystery which revolves around the mysterious death of a young college girl, allegedly killed by a college gang comprising 9 girls. But the tale comes with a totally unpredictable twist at the end. Though Suresh Gopi was the hero in the Malayalam version, no big name is associated with the Tamil remake as this character is said to be tinged with shades of negativity; R.K. who played villain in Thoondil has donned the role in the Tamil remake. (No, this character is not the murderer either. We are not giving any plot spoilers here!)
“The filming is almost over and now I am concentrating fully on the Mohanlal starrer Red Chillies, in which he acts as an NRI businessman. This film is also a crime thriller,” says the director who has a penchant for crime thrillers.
