Film-maker M Manikandan's third Tamil directorial Aandavan Kattalai, which features Vijay Sethupathi in the lead, is about the common discrepancies involved while issuing passports.
"It's a light-hearted entertainer that throws the spotlight on discrepancies in the passport issuing structure and the various problems we face due to which. The film's last schedule is currently being shot in an embassy set," a source told IANS.
Unlike the National-award winning Kaaka Muttai, Manikandan's latest venture will be a realistic entertainer.
"Although it deals with a very serious issue, the entire film has been treated in an entertaining manner," the source said, adding that actress Ritika Singh of Irudhi Suttru fame plays a very pivotal role in the film.
The film also features actor Yogi Babu, who was seen in Kaaka Muttai, and he will be playing a prominent role as well. Veteran actor Nassar too, will be seen in an interesting role along with actress Pooja Devariya, who made her debut in Selvaraghavan's Mayakkam Enna.
Musician K has been roped in to compose the tunes. The film, which is expected to hit the big screen later this year, will be edited by Anucharan and the camera will be cranked by director Manikandan himself. It is being bankrolled by GN Anbu Chezhiyan under Gopuram Films.
All eyes will be on Manikandan to see if he can deliver the goods yet again, especially after fabricating a high quality movie like Kaaka Muttai.
Also to be seen is how well he handles stars like Vijay Sethupathi, Nassar and Ritika Singh. Ritika, who is high on confidence after making an impressive debut, will look to stamp her authority in Kollywood.
Stay tuned for more details on this exciting project.
