Kollywood : Kamal for 50 years in cinema & Mohanlal’s Onam special - 25 May 2009


Unnaipol Oruvan is sure to be special to film fans both in Tamil and Malayalam. If the movie is bringing together two of the best known legends of film frat, it is also being timed for release in a way that it is special to the audiences. The film, which will be completed including post production in a month from now, is being planned as an August release for two reasons. August 12, a good fifty years ago, was when Kamal’s first film, Kalathur Kannamma was released. Plans are on to release this film on the same date.

This also works well for the Malayalam star Mohanlal, who acts with Kamal Haasan for the first time in the film. This film will be seen also as his treat for Malayalam fans in the traditional Onam season. Unnaipol Oruvan, directed by debutant Chakri Toleti, is being jointly produced by U TV and Raajkamal Films international. It is a remake of A Wednesday, and shooting, for most part of the film, has been completed. The film has been shot entirely in Hyderabad, and is a bilingual, simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu (as Eenadu).
