Jayam Ravi who has been playing a chocolate boy role with perfection and had been making a few hearts skip their beat with his handsome looks, naughty performance and feel good movies has been leaping into the big shoes of a mass hero and a star . If his prowess for action was proved right in ‘Peraanmai’ by Director S .P. Jhananathan here comes “Bhoologam” to cement his place as an action star !!! It is no co incidence that “Bhoologam” is directed by N. Kalyanakrishnan who had associated Director Jhananathan in all his ventures.
Producer V. Ravichandran of Aascar films who is known for his eyes and ears for successful formulas in film making was impressed by the narration style of the young director and is confident that the making and the cast of the film will rank itself into the big film category!!!
The director who had spent considerable period in researching the nuances of ‘boxing’ in north madras says this film has a vision and we are focused… Set in the back drop of North Madras still a haven for “boxing” in this part of the country Jayam Ravi plays the role of a Boxer, “Bhoologam” who hit the national headlines maneuvered by the demons and compulsions of the society.
Trisha beautiful as ever celebrates her decade long relationship with the tinsel world by playing the female lead a role very contrary to the jumping around the tree heroine role!!!
Prakashraj hasn’t been challenged in terms of characters considering his potentiality…it is true that there are not much challenges ahead of him when it comes to sheer performance. In ‘Bhoologam’ he plays a ‘powerful role’…and virtually a powerful role …his could be the most discussed in the near future.
The casting is power packed we would rather say when you have Arpit ranga as National Boxing Champion, Rajesh as State Boxing champion , Shanmugarajan and Ponvannan . The song depicting the relationship between Jayam ravi the disciple and Ponvannan the master would go a long way in the emotional angle , and I was amazed by the acting potentiality of Jayam ravi in those scenes …he was terrific , the director gleefully endorses ..
While I have penned the script and screen play along with directing the film , Iam very fortunate to have Jahanathan sir to pen the dialogues and his outlook on the society has been reflected well in every single phrace !!!
The sound of music is orchestered by Srikkanth Deva, and his numbers in the movie will definitely cater to the ears of the masses, the ample proof is the popularity it enjoys among the unit members now. Lyric writer Vijaysagar brings the ‘typical slang and culture’ of North Madras with his songs and the director of photography SR. Sathish kumar of Peraanmai fame (unseen visuals were introduced to the audience in his ‘taming of the forest’) and art director debutant AR Mohan combine to gather to bring the color and culture of the boxing back ground!!!
The icing of the cake for an action flick is always the editing and with Editor V .T .Vijayan on the helm it stands assured. Every eye that watched ‘Peraanmai’ was in awe on the intensity of the stunt sequence and every lip muttered ‘wow’…here is a repeat rather much intensified action by the stunt master Miracle Michael (stunt director for Kochadaiyaan).
The ultimate attraction of ‘Bhoologam’ would be the action sequence involving Jayam Ravi and Nathan jones (Hollywood artiste from America, who stands tall… literally seven feet…who has got fans all around the globe “Troy” fame). Here is a clash where it will not be just the sparks but bomb shells!!! Watch out for ‘Bhoologam’. The stage is all set for a knockout punch and we will deliver the punch in style…The director flashes his toothy smile.
