Lined up for Feb.14



Pranathi and Jai Akash in "Guru Deva."

WITH "RAMAKRISHNA" doing more than expected business, its hero Jai Akash is all geared up for his next venture, Sri Chella Muthu Kumara Movies Pvt. Ltd's "Guru Deva," to be released on February 14. Paired with Pranathi, who was earlier seen in "Gambeeram," Jai Akash will portray an angry action hero in "Guru Deva," quite different from what he did in "Ramakrishna." Jaffer, the dialogue writer of "Manadhil" and the storywriter of a couple of Malayalam films, takes on the responsibility of director for the first time with "Guru Deva." Nasser dons an impressive role in the film, which is a bi-lingual in Tamil and Telugu. As Jai Akash has already acted in about half dozen Telugu films and is a known face there, the makers probably feel a simultaneous Telugu release would prove fruitful. R. Mathi who cranked the camera for films such as "Punnagai Desam" is the cinematographer of "Guru Deva." Sabesh-Murali are the composers.

"Alaiyadikkudhu"



Sindhu Dhulani in "Alaiyadikkudhu."

After "Sullaan" and "Mamnadhan" Sindhu Dhulani will be back again in "Alaiyadikkudhu" — a story of vendetta, heroine style, produced by Studio Light and directed by Kalimuthu. The hero is the new face Navin Dhanush. Actually Dhanush is the young man's original name. But as his namesake is already making waves the new hero has adopted a prefix. Strangely, though Kalimuthu has worked as assistant director in seven Supergood Films' productions, the big break has come to him from Studio Light. And Supergood is always known for the encouragement it gives aspiring directors. However, shooting is on in full swing as "Alaiyadikkudhu" is also slated for a Valentine's Day release. Bharani has composed the music for the film and Pawan Shekar who filmed "Asai Asaiyai," handles the camera.
