Feeling Nostalgic….

Now that the Deepavali releases are competing vigorously, the focus shifts to the upcoming November releases which are likely to eat away their collections. Sundar.C - Madhavan combo’s ‘Rendu’ and Karu.Palaniappan – Vishal combo’s ‘Sivapathigaram’ may be the movies to notice in that November lot. ‘Rendu’ seems to be a comedy movie with the latter being a hot action movie.

My expectations are more on Karu. Palaniappan’s ‘Sivapathigaram’. Somehow, I feel Vidyasagar’s music won’t help much to woo the audience for this movie, even though the album is a mixed bag of melody & folk songs.

Atrai thingal vaanidam’ sung by Sujatha & Madhoo Balakrishnan is very soothing and pick of the lot. ‘Chitiraiyil yenna..’ by Karthik & Swarnalatha is one more typical Vidyasagar melody reminding me of some of his tunes of ‘Varnajalam’.

Out of the folk songs ‘Mannarkudi Kala kalakka’ by Manickam Vinayagam & Rajalakshmi tops the list, which is likely to be the absolute treat for the folk song lovers. ‘Adi Chandira Sooriya..’ fits in the list as one more proper folk song. Not sure, how it is placed in the movie…

Much depends on Karu. Palaniappan’s screenplay, which was his strength in his debut ‘Parthiban Kanavu’. I have not watched Vishal’s ‘Thimiru’ yet. But, his selection of scripts are really interesting. However, I’m not sure as to how KP is packaging the folk songs in to the story. Trust this combo may deliver some interesting stuff, which is also a comeback vehicle for Raghuvaran.

It should be interesting to wait and see… their output.

One more reason for me to watch this movie, is that this movie has been shot in OUR COLLEGE, where movie shootings are absolutely rare. I don’t remember seeing any movies shot in our campus. Each and every picture reminds me of my college days. It should have reminded Karu. Palaniappan as well who is an alumni of the college.

Looks like Washburn hall (hostel), where I stayed for sometime. I have a similar shot taken at this place.

Somewhere near the Principal’s office….

Near our Department staff room…

Near the Bell tower… I believe still they use this manual system, without using the electronic systems..
