This Pongal with “Padikkathavan” is going to be hilarious. The movie is not a remake of yesteryear though it shares the name banking on Superstar’s name. The movie has Dhanush that’s a highlight as this will be second movie in a row to act in movies title after his father-in-laws yesteryears super hit movies.

Lakshmi movie makers “Silambattam” is directed by cameraman turned Director S. Saravanan. Simbu who did action and romantic peppy roles opted to do a complete morph where he plays a young and energetic temple priest. Sneha in a prominent role and debutant Sana Khan plays the lady love. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed perky songs including classical numbers. A renowned yesteryears song from Thillana mohanaambal “Nalamthaana” is remixed for this movie. Could anyone forget the legendary performance by our “Nadigar Thilagam” shivaji and “Nattiya peroli” Badmini for this song? Song Nalam Thaana is not a complete remix and only a few words used from the old hit song.
Starring: Srikanth, Parvathy
It is indeed hard to mix realism and commercialism in cinema but not for director Sasi who has come up with this new venture titled “Poo”. The title itself gives us a feeling of softness and beauty of a flower (Poo). Could anyone forget the beautiful Love story with commercially hit songs of “Rojakootam” that stars Srikanth and Bhoomika? Director Sasi is one such talent who can bring those two elements together. He is back again with the same actor too. It has been a long time after his last movie “Dishym” commercially did well. “Poo” stars Srikanth and Mollywood actress Parvathi. Debut cameraman P.G Muthiah along with Maiden Music composer S.S Kumar must be much elated to work with Sasi who seems to have a penchant for New comers. “Poo is shot extensively in the rural backdrop of Thirunelveli based on the novel “Veyilodu Poi”. The Novel signifies the heart and soul of village life in Rajapalayam. Poo is certain to give the feeling of having read the novel with a déjà vu effect” narrates Director Sasi. Talking about Poo star cast he quotes “I share a good rapport with Srikanth since Rojakootam. He is a talented Artist. For parvathi, Poo is the first movie in Tamil but her sincerity and dedication is amazing. Poo depicts strong sentiments and characterization. All the characterization speaks for them, contributing the beat in them. I am sure our team effort will reap only success”. Produced by Moser Baer who are selectively following a trend of choosing quality movies adds “Poo” to their Crown. We wish Director Sasi that his talent of trendsetting is sure to heap him with viewer’s accolades.
