Dhanush and Hari have joined their hands for the first time in upcoming film Venghai. With National Award to his credit, the Aadakulam star will be seen in an action-packed movie directed by Hari, who is known as a specialist in mass masala movies. The filmmaker and the actor are coming back after the success of their respective films like Aadakulam and Singam.
The story of Venghai is about a common man Selvam (Dhanush), who takes up arms due to unavoidable situations. Though he loves to stay away from trouble, the circumstances make him to revolt against the evil forces of the system. On the other side of the story, it shows the bonding of father-son relationship between Veera Pandi (Rajkiran) and Selvam. While Tamanna Bhatia plays the role of leading lady in the film, Prakash Raj once again dons the character of a baddie.
The photography started in November 2010 without much hype. The major portion of Venghai has been shot at Sivagangai district and rest of the parts have been filmed at Karaikudi, Courtallam, Munar, Tirchy and adjoining cities.
The audio of Venghai has received mixed responses from the audience. The film has five songs of which critics have appreciated only one song, 'Pudikale Pudikudhu...' which is crooned by Mukesh and Suchitra. Devi Sri Prasad has scored the music and Viveka has penned the lyrics.
Recently, Venghai was in controversy after a producer brought a stay order for the movie release due to title dispute. Later, the makers of the film resolved the issue thus paving way for its release without any hurdle.
