Beware all the established and rookie directors in Kollywood: T. Rajendhar, known to do almost everything in his films besides directing and playing lead roles, is back in Kollywood as a director with a film titled as Oru Thalai Raagam 2.
37 years back, TR made his debut film Oru Thalai Raagam in 1980 which had memorable songs and ran for a record number of days at the box-office. TR later made a name for himself with his pure-Tamil lyrics, enchanting music and emotion-filled films. Critics often felt that the only mistake he made in all his films was to play important roles in all those films!
TR, who played a major role in Vijay Sethupathi’s Kavan directed by K.V. Anand, is playing yet another important role in director Perarasu’s upcoming film which has Vishal in the lead. The shoot of the untitled film is to commence very soon.
TR, who dabbled in politics in vain, has also decided to return back to his roots – directing a film – and has named his upcoming directorial venture as Oru Thalai Raagam 2 which marks his return to directing films a decade after his 2007 venture Veerasamy.
As always, TR takes care of the story, screenplay, dialogue, direction, lyrics and scoring music.
