KochadiayaanKOCHADAIYAAN (Hindi): DIRECTOR: Soundarya R Ashwin | STARS: Rajnikanth, Deepika Padukone and R. Sarathkumar | MUSIC: A.R.Rehman | CINEMATOGRAPHY: Rajiv Menon. 

A saga of love, betrayal and revenge. An animated motion picture featuring Rajnikanth and Deepika Padukone in the main lead. The story of a King of 8th century who is strong, agile and just. He who fights the system and brings justice. In ‘Kochadaiyaan’ we see Rajnikanth in 3 roles.

The director of ‘Kochadaiyaan’ Soundarya said in an interview, “Animation is a word, a process. In India people thing animation is cartoon. ‘Avatar’ was animation, but not a cartoon.’Tintin’ is completely cartoonistic. I am creating Rajnikanth, where he has actually performed, it’s captured on a camera and then put into a 3D version. Avatar took seven years and so much budget and a James Cameron. There was always the insecurity of the unknown, but we have taken a road never taken in India and broken rules and have completed the film in just a year and a half.”

We see three movies this weekend and all three carry a lot of expectations on their shoulders. Will they be able to prove themselves or not shall be seen soon.

… till next week ciao from me!
