Kalathil Sandhippom: What is this Jiiva and Arulnithi starrer all about?
Jiiva and Arulnithi's Kalathil Sandhippom will be produced by R B Choudary.
Kalathil Sandhippom is the name of an upcoming Tamil film, which has been directed by N Rajasekar and stars Jiiva and Arulnithi. The film also will have Manjima Mohan and Priya Bhavani Shankar as the female leads. It is produced by Jiiva’s dad R B Choudary for his Super Good Films banner. Yuvan Shankar Raja has scored music for the film whose first look was released by Dhanush on his social media account. The film is said to be an out and out commercial entertainer, the plot of which revolves around friendship which is why the poster was revealed on the International Friendship Day.
This is the first time Jiiva and Arulnithi are coming together and so are their pairs. While Manjima is paired opposite Jiiva, Priya Bhavani Shankar will be Arulnithi’s love interest. There would be a perfect blend of romance, action, and humor with the right kind of twists and turns in the film. Elaborating further about the film, director Rajasekar says, “the story revolves around friendship and two childhood friends played by Jiiva and Arulnithi. They are polar opposites and differ from each other in every aspect; while one has a carefree attitude and a great sense of humor, the other one is emotional and picks up fights with people if he feels he is right. There is nothing common in them be it their political orientation or their approach towards life. The film will explore what keeps them together."
Jiiva and Arulnithi will be seen as Kabaddi players in the film. “Even in Kabaddi, while one person plays defence, the other one plays offense. Even here, they are different, and we’ve used this to showcase their characterization. But I reiterate, the script is not based on Kabaddi.” states Rajasekar. The film is set against the backdrop of Karaikudi, a place where playing Kabaddi is part of the lifestyle. The film's shoot took place in Chennai, Thenkasi, and Karaikudi and presently the team is busy with the post-production work. Actors such as Robo Shankar, Bala Saravanan, Aadukalam Naren, and Renuka play supporting roles. The unit is looking to release the film in September.Read More
