Director Mani Ratnam, who rarely attends film functions, has
launched the audio of Kalavani on Monday at Sathyam Cinemas. The
film is produced by S Nazir, a former production executive of Mani
After the launch, Mani Ratnam said, "Nazir is still the same
today as he was many years ago when he worked for me. He bared the
entire brunt of my work whenever there was a problem even in the
direction department and we would lay the blame on the production
side! For that I owe him an apology. I am very happy that he has
turned producer today and is making a film like Kalavani with new
directors and new actors. This shows his love for cinema. His
success is like my own success to me."
The audio CD was received by director Sasikumar in the presence
of Trisha, Saranya, Parthiban, Na Muthukumar, RK Selvamani, hero
Vimal, heroine Oviya ( debutants), director Vijay and new director
Sargunam who debuts with this film. The music is by SS Kumaran who
returns after his debut in Poo.
The interesting part of the function was that, each speaker was
called upon to recount some tale of petty thievery, fraud or
something naughty they have done in their lives, in keeping with
the theme of the title of the film.
