Though the film has not enjoyed huge anticipation or buzz around it, it has been in the news ever since the track 'Dandanakka' was released and hence has managed to catch some attention.
Amidst controversies and delays, the movie is finally on its way to get noticed worldwide this Friday. It's a romance-comedy, which revolves around two characters, Romeo and Juliet.
Apart from the central characters, the flick features Vamsi Krishna in a negative role and actors like Uma Padmanabhan, VTV Ganesh and Poonam Bajwa in supporting roles.
While the music has been scored by D Imman, S Soundar Rajan has wielded the camera. Editor Anthony has chipped in with his editing skills and lyrics for the songs have been written by Rokesh, Madhan Karky and Thamarai.
All Jayam Ravi fans have been waiting eagerly for the release of this movie as their favourite star has had a quiet couple of years. His previous movie Nimirndhu Nil too did not fare well at the box office.
Having said that, will Romeo Juliet go on to become a hit? Well, only time will decide that. For now, take a look at the slides below to know some of the interesting facts about the movie.
Nayantara's Loss Is Hansika's Gain
It is reported that Nayantara was first approached for the heroine role. But since, the actress had already signed Jayam Ravi's Thani Oruvan, she rejected the offer saying she doesn't want to feature in two films with the same hero at a time. Hansika was approached next.
Hansika A Futuristic Girl
According to Hansika, Romeo Juliet has an interesting storyline, the pretty actress has revealed that her role is about a girl with futuristic attitude, while Jayam Ravi's character would be more conservative. Isn't it the opposite usually?
Arya's Special Appearance
The team of Romeo Juliet had shot a sequence where real life celebrities approach Jayam Ravi's character, a fitness trainer, to help them achieve six pack abs. Arya, a good friend of Jayam Ravi, made a guest appearance.
Romeo Juliet's Connection With Kalvanin Kadhali
We had earlier mentioned that the director of this film was once a producer. Kalvanin Kadhali, featuring SJ Surya and Nayantara was actually produced by Lakshman, director of Romeo Juliet.
First Official Poster
The film's first official poster was released on 14th April 2014, coinciding with the Tamil New Year and indicated that filming had begun. The team held their first schedule on May 2014, with Poonam Bajwa joining the cast.
While 'Dandanakka' is already a known song, it is only fair to look forward to other songs as well. While Anirudh has sung 'Dandanakka', Vishal Dadlani has sung two. Vaikom Vijayalakshmi too has crooned the number titled, 'Idarkuthaane Aasaipattai'
