Comedian Karunas, who is also one of the vice-presidents of Nadigar Sangam and the MLA from Tiruvadanai, is all set to score music for an upcoming film titled as Pagiri.
The film deals with the pros and cons of ‘WhatsApp’ application, which has become an integral part of all smart-phone users nowadays. The makers of the film insist that Pagiri is the Tamil translation for ‘WhatsApp’. Isakki Karvannan is the debutant director of the film which as Prabhu Ranaveeran (a TV star) and Shravyya (from Andhra Pradesh) as the debuting pair.
The sevend directors who would be starring in the film are Ravi Mariah, A. Venkatesh, Saravana Subbaiah, Marimuthu, T.P. Gajendran, K. Rajan and Balasekaran. Thiruma Velan and ‘Supergood’ Subramani have prominent roles in the film which has Veerakumar as the cinematographed and Karunas as music director.
This would be the fourth film to have music by Karunas afer Rajathi Raja, Ambasamudram Ambani and Kasethan Kadavulada.
“It’s a comic venture and is about sharing (done via ‘WhatsApp’) and hence we titled the film as Pagiri. The film would be very contemporary in its treatment and gives an insight into how today’s youths should lead their love and professional lives.
The film has comedy as its major strength and along with it, I have also subtly conveyed my message to the audiences,” says debutant Karvannan, who oozes in confidence.
The film’s shoot has been wrapped up in 35 days after the crew shot non-stop at Tambaram, Mudichur and Sriperumbudur on the outskirts of Chennai. Produced by Lakshmi Creations, the film is likely to hit the screens towards end-July.
