Gautam Menon‘s interview to Vikatan clears off the rumor cloud surrounding Vettayadu Vilayadu. With the movie getting stuck on producer Khaja Mohideen’s attempted suicide, it is now afresh with Oscar Ravichandran taking over the movie production.
While waiting for the U.S visas, Gautam Menon says he has completed a schedule of shoot in India. He also upsets me by saying Vettayadu Vilayadu is just another face of Kakkha Kakkha in Kamal’s way. While I expected him to make a Kamal movie considering Kamal’s age, I certainly didn’t want another cop film to be churned out. Makes me wonder why my beliefs on Kodambakkam are a tad high than the reality. Though we could rest assured that the movie could be slick in cinematography and editing, I would have expected a non-cop film and for sure a non-Kakkha Kakkha type flick.
He also reveals that his next flick would be an Arya-Jyothika starrer. He seems to like Jyothika as an actress and that’s a consolation for me. Finally he speaks out the truth. SJ Surya might even stage a darna for that. While replying to a question on Ah Aha, he concludes, if only SJ Surya wouldn’t have acted in the movie, it could have been a hit like Kushi. We agree Gautam !! We agree a ton with you.
