Raising expectations


"Dhool"... can Vikram deliver the goods?

THE SUCCESS of ``Dhil'' has inspired the entire unit, led by director Dharani, to work overtime to make Sri Surya Movies's ``Dhool" a box-office hit. Dharani feels the pressure of success and the expectations it brings along with it. ``My movies were always different in a number of ways," said Dharani when this writer caught up with him shooting in the heart of the city with leading stars — Vikram, Jyotika, Vivek — in attendance. ``The success of ``Dhill'' has increased my responsibility," the director continued. ``I must see to it that my fans, who are eagerly awaiting the release of this film, are satisfied. And I'm sure that `Dhool' will not disappoint them. It will have all the ingredients of a commercial success and I have tried to be different in many ways. One can see Vikram handling a role in a more mature way. Jyothika and Reema Sen are bound to be a treat to watch. This will be another successful film for the producer A. M. Rathnam."
