Actor Jai’s lineup of movies for the upcoming season is proving to be unique in aspects of genre and premise. He has now kick-started his new project ‘Yenni Thuniga’, a high volatile thriller movie. Produced by Suresh Subramaniam for Rain of Arrow Entertainment, the film marks the directorial debut of SK Vettri Selvan, a former associate of director Vasanth and cinematographer Ravi K Chandran. He has shot several commercial advertisements as well.  The film’s shooting commenced this morning with a ritual ceremony attended by cast and crew.

Director SK Vettri Selvan says, “The film’s title Yenni Thuniga is inspired from the famous proverb of Thirukural, which signifies that several thoughts can be allowed before getting into action, but once started, there shouldn’t be stepping back. Such happens to be the characterization of our film’s protagonist Kathir, played by Jai who works in an IT company. He leads his life with the motto of “Living the moment” and that doesn’t mean, he has the devil-may-care attitude. He is good natured and is always caring about his family and friends. In contrast, there is Narmada, played by Athulya Ravi, who is so much focused and concerned about her future and others as well. However, these characters with chalk and cheese nature tend to fall in love with each other. But the film’s main conflict arises, when Jai’s peaceful life is disturbed by a bunch of bigwigs in the society, who create chaos in his life. Now he has to step forward and combat them down. This will be an out and out racy thriller film laced with twists and turns.”

While speaking about the cast and crew, SK Vettri Selvan adds, “It is well known that Jai is always outstanding with his performance and dance. In this film, he will be seen performing some extraordinary Live action sequences. I am sure; Athulya will be definitely noted for her nuance performances. Although, both of them have shared the screen space together in the movie ‘Capmaari’, their roles and this film will be completely in contrast to it. Sunil Reddy, Vaibhav’s elder brother, who debuted in films through Seethakaathi will be playing a negative role. We are now approaching one of the leading artistes to play another negative character in the film and will making official announcement on this soon.”

Anjali Nair will be seen playing another female lead in this movie, which has an ensemble star-cast. Sam CS (Music),JB Dinesh Kumar (Cinematography),  VJ Sabu Joseph (Editor), GN Murugan (Stunt), Sherif (Choreography), NJ Sathya (Costume designer), ‘96’ fame Karthik Netha (Lyrics) and Raja (Publicity design) are the main technicians involved in the film.

The most eligible bachelor in town Harish Kalyan now plays a not so eligible, laid back engineering graduate who is pushed into the marriage game.

The handsome young actor is cast opposite the talented and gorgeous Priya Bhavanishankar who will be seen in a fun and fresh look, in a film that is centred around the ‘Matchmaking Ceremony’ that marks an important part of an arranged marriage.

This is the official remake of the Telugu block buster film "Pelli Choopulu", starring Vijay Devarakonda and Ritu Verma.

Kaarthikk Sundar, a former associate of director A.L Vijay makes his directorial debut with this film.

The shooting commenced this morning (December 11) in Chennai with a Ritual Ceremony attended by the Cast and Crew members.

This is an A Studios LLP and Havish Productions’ second film and is produced by Mr.Koneru Satyanarayana and production will be executed by SP Cinemas.

“I am actually going through a mixed feeling of excitement and butterflies in the stomach at the same time,” says director Kaarthikk Sundar, smilingly who brings up a valid reason from his perspective on this.

“When I first saw Pelli Choopulu I was in awe as to how simple and rooted the movie was. I immediately called my best friend since childhood, Harish Kalyan and told him if this film were to be remade in Tamil, he would fit the lead character perfectly. It is funny how the universe listened to that conversation and, here we are. I’m also excited to work with Priya Bhavanishankar who is playing the female lead as she is a thorough actor and I’ve always enjoyed her performances on screen.

The film is purely a content and characters- driven film, which has an effortless natural essence to it. Having mentioned the ‘Naturalness’ factor, we have made certain changes to the script to suit our regional audience's sensibilities.

I want to thank Harish for bringing me on board this beautiful project and my producer Mr. Koneru Satyanarayana for giving me this big opportunity and SP Cinemas for their support in Production to embark on my directorial journey.”
Senior Artiste Nassar initiated the proceedings with the clap board while Hero Harish Kalayan and heroine Priya Bhavani Shankar took part in the first shot of the film.

While Vishal Chandrasekhar will be composing music for this film, the cinematography will be handled by Krishnan Vasant, the project will be coordinated by Kodali Muralekrisshna.
The others in the technical team includes Kripa (Editor), Deepak Sundarrajan (Dialogues), Sadhish.K (Art Director), Anusha Meenakshi (Costume Designer) and Surya (Stills).The Movie will be a Summer Treat for the audience.

While a music director might be acclaimed with several appreciable verbal statements, what actually labels them as an ‘Undisputed Winner’ is when their masterpieces become a viral hit in all platforms that go through several recreations with cover versions and remixes. Be it the most celebrated symphonies or our very own folk tunes, they have proved to be a paradigm of such victories. Music Director Ghibran’s musical score for ‘Ratsasan’ is one such epitome, where his BGM has witnessed unlimited remixes and cover versions across YouTube and music platforms. Moreover, it has been regarded by the music buffs as Indian version of ‘The X-Files Theme’, which transports the listeners into world of enigmas with thrills and chills running through the veins. More than all, Ghibran has been constantly winning the ‘Best Original Score’ for his mind-boggling creation of music for this film in many International Film Festivals and here is one more adding up to the league. Yes, Ghibran has been awarded ‘Best Original Score’ awards at ‘East Europe International Film Festival 2019’ (One of the part of Fusion International Film Festivals) that was held in Warsaw. The category had many International movies in the nomination among which Ratsasan was selected.

Directed by Ram Kumar and produced by G. Dilli Babu of Axess Film Factory, Ratsasan, an edge-seated psychological thriller was released in 2018. The film starring Vishnu Vishal, Amala Paul and Saravanan in lead roles became a raging hit in box office winning the attention of both critics and general audiences.
