There is been a great buzz around Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam since the day it was announced. The film went on floors on February 12 and now we have more information about what to expect from the ace director. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is touted to be a socio-political drama, which will throw light on issues like industrial Pollution, environment safety ad take on the loopholes in our political system. It brings together a stellar star cast of Silambarasan, Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Arun Vijay, Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari, Jayasudha, Prakash Raj.
While all the actors have powerful roles in the movie, we hear that STR will be seen playing an Engineer while the other leading actors will be playing his brothers. Arvind Swami will be seen as a politician and we wonder if we will see a faceoff between the brothers with them being on different sides.
Not just the cast, Mani Ratman has made sure to have an enviable crew on board as well. The cinematographer is said to be handled by Santosh Sivan while the music will be scored by iconic composer AR Rahman. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam will also release in Telugu as Nawab and while interest around the film is sky rocketing, expectations are high as well. Especially after Ratnam failed to impress audience with his last outing, Kaatru Veliyidai.
Ratnam can be trusted to bring out the best from his actors but the genre of the film will require tight editing, punch dialogues and a gripping story line to keep audience at the edge of their seats. While the first look poster and the details of the film have fans excited, only upcoming stills and teasers will let us know what the filmmaker has in store for us with Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
