Atleast Kamal was discussed fiercely in this blog recently. Gautam wasn’t even in the scene. Just when I started to write a blogpost on his Kakkha Kakkha DVD commentary, Nitin commented about Gautam’s new movie with Kamal named Vettayadu Vilayadu which was kicked off today in Chennai.
The last time when I was in a seminar, Gautam Menon who was one of the key speakers of the seminar went on to ask the audience what kind of story did they wanted him to make for Kamal. Many of what they said had really wonderful themes and roles for Kamal. But they said in an unified voice that they didn’t want a police movie again from Gautam. Looks like he finally settled for a cop-in-racy-thriller.
From what Sify’s article underlines this movie runs from New York to some village deep inside Tamil Nadu. Seems ver exciting for a tamil flick. I firmly believe Gautam can deliver it with Kamal Hassan on his league. Gautam can do better with Kamal like what Shankar did in Indian. He probably is one of the directors to watch out for. This is a very early break for him and looks like he wouldn’t be turning back anymore. Instead of settling down with Harris, Gautam could have pursued A R Rahman to key in the tunes.
We already have Surya’s Gajini with a slick look and Vettayaadu Villayaadu will also join the list of slick films expected next year. BTW, Surya’s hair makeover for Gajini makes him look very tough and classy.
