The noteworthy release of the coming weekend in Tamil cinema is Boomerang starring Atharvaa, RJ Balaji, Megha Akash, Sathish and Indhuja. The film is directed and produced by Kannan and has music by 'Arjun Reddy' fame Radhan. At the recent press conference of the film, Atharvaa had said that the title Boomerang indicates ‘karma’ in the sense “you reap what you sow”. Director Kannan said confidently that he has shown farmers' issues in an impactful manner and that interlinking of rivers is one of the solutions (for the state’s water issues), that he has put forth through the film.
Interestingly, superstar Rajinikanth had talked about interlinking of all the national rivers some years back as the only solution to the state’s water issues and ensuring proper irrigation for farm lands. He had also announced then that he would donate 1 crore towards this project. Upon hearing that Boomerang also talks about linking of rivers and farmers' issues, Rajinikanth expressed his interest to meet the team. Earlier in the day on Thursday, the film’s director Kannan met the superstar along with his production team and sought his blessings and support for the film. Rajinikanth conveyed his heartfelt wishes to the team for a successful run in theatres.
It’s always heartening to see a big shot like Rajinikanth take time out from his schedule and meet upcoming talents of the industry. It must have been a simple gesture for him but for people like Kannan, it would remain a lifetime memory.
