Director Bala has finally revealed the name of his forthcoming film. It has been titled Avan Ivan. The movie stars Vishal and Arya. Speaking about the film, Bala said that Arya and Vishal play brothers in the film. True to his word that he will work on a lighter subject this time, Bala disclosed that it would be a ‘jolly’ film. It means the director will not touch upon the dark subjects that he had been dealing with.


When the reporters asked about the dialogue writer, Bala said that noted writer S Ramakrishnan had penned the dialogues.

While looking for a song of Mahesh and Preity Zinta from Raja kumarudu on youtube, look what I came across! real good quality too. I haven’t seen this since it came out 2004/5. I remember loving it. Mahesh babu as the cute boy next door is adorable. I loved all the emotional scenes and all what he goes through for his sister. 


Songs are great too. Ra ra ra is my favourite followed by Ye Pilla.

Director Selvaraghavan Interview January 14, 2010

Long but Interesting interview mostly on Aayirathil Oruvan.


director selvaraghavan

By Shobha Warrier. Source:

Selvaraghavan is hailed as one of the brightest filmmakers in Tamil. His first film Kadhal Kondein starring his younger brother Dhanush and made in a realistic dark format unlike the usual Tamil films, was a breath of fresh air.
His second film 7G Rainbow Colony was another different and refreshing movie.
But his third film Pudupettai was a disappointment. That was in 2006.

Since then Selva took a break before working on his magnum opus Aayirathil Oruvan (One in a Thousand) which took two years to make.
After many delays, the film is finally releasing on January 14 to coincide with Pongal.


A very relaxed and jovial Selvaraghavan spoke exclusively to’s Shobha Warrier on Aayirathil Oruvan and more.


What was more difficult for you: making Aayirathil Oruvan or the long wait?

It was like moving from one nightmare to another! There was not much difference between how I felt both the times. Waiting for people’s reaction now is another nightmare!

Why did you decide to take up such a difficult project?

I felt stagnant making the same kind of films. I felt I was not going anywhere. Yes, you either make the same kind of films again and again and feel safe, or do something more challenging. It did not excite me to repeat myself. The very reason why I didn’t pursue a career as a mechanical engineer was because I don’t like monotony — I can’t have the same routine everyday. So, I felt I needed change and challenges as a filmmaker.



Anuoshka Interview January 11, 2010

The yoga instructor-turned-actress, Anoushka Shetty, debuted in Tamil films with the Sundar C directed ‘Rendu’ opposite Madhavan a few years back.  The film flopped at the box office, making Anoushka jittery and forced her to shift base from Kollywood to Tollywood.


Though she has done quite a few movies in Tollywood, last year’s ‘Arundhati’ ranks as her best hit in all languages till date.  The film, a heroine-oriented role, brought to the fore Anoushka’s amazing screen presence and her acting credentials.


‘The unprecedented success of ‘Arundhati prompted its producer to dub the film in all the South Indian languages.  The Tamil version of ‘Arundhati’, released with the same title, ran to packed houses all over the State and even gave the big films a run for their money.


This prompted Tamil producers and directors to queue up and sign up Anoushka in their films.  She has had her comeback venture in Tamil films opposite Vijay in ‘Vettaikaran’ . She also has ‘Singam’ opposite Suriya, another top hero in Kollywood.


A Tete-a-tete with Anoushka


How did you feel prior to and after the release of ‘Vettaikkaran’?

It was great to work with Vijay, who is so simple and down-to-earth.  I certainly didn’t have any attitude problems with him.  The film’s box-office collections are quite encouraging.  As an actor, I can only perform and can’t assure the success of all the movies in which I’m involved.  We can only do our best and hope for the best.


How’s your ‘Singam’ opposite Suriya progressing?

‘Singam’ is another typical commercial entertainer buy my role is quite a significant one in the movie.  I have been learning Tamil sincerely to look realistic while lip-synching the dialogues and have begun to understand Tamil a lot better now.
