Debutant director Pradeep Ranganathan is directing Jayam Ravi in his 24th film. Ravi has had a decent outing at the box office with his last year’s Shakthi Sounderrajan directorial space film Tik Tik Tik and the year end Adanga Maru under Karthik Thangavel’s direction. Adanga Maru was a home banner of sorts for the actor as the film was bankrolled by his mom-in-law Sujatha Vijayakumar for Home Movie Makers. This year we would see him in Pradeep’s romantic comedy, which is said to be titled as Komali.
As regards the title, there is something that has come to our notice. Director Pradeep tells us, “Komali is not the final title and we are using that for shoot purposes. We are done with 70 per cent of the shooting and would soon be wrapping it up. We are aiming for a June release and promotions would begin from April which would be in the form of a teaser, trailer and also audio release. This is our plan for now." If Komali is not the title, we wonder what could be the unit’s choice of title for the film.
This Jayam Ravi’s 24th film is produced by Ishari Ganesh for his Vel’s Film International and stars Kajal Aggarwal and Samyuktha Hegde as female leads. This is the first time we would see the combo of Jayam Ravi and Kajal Aggarwal on the big screen. Director KS Ravikumar plays an important supporting role, while Sampath, Yogi Babu, Jayaprakash, Ashish Vidyarthi are also a part. Hiphop Tamizha is composing music for the film. It was reported that Jayam Ravi had shed around 20 kgs to suit his role in the film. Post this film, Ravi is expected to team up with his brother and director Mohan Raja for the sequel of Thani Oruvan, which would be his 25th film.
