The name says it all!! We have witnessed many new films being named after the old movie titles.
But, it is for the first time in the history of Tamil Cinema, a combination of a tall leader’s name – MGR, along with Superstar Rajinikanth’s movie title – Pandiyan, is titled for a new movie – MGR Pandiyan.
MGR Pandiyan, a high budget politico-commercial entertainer, produced and directed by Adham Bhava assumes much significance under the current political scenario, with factions fighting for the party and its iconic symbol, once founded by the Late Chief Minister M.G. Ramachandran.
And with the Superstar Rajinikanth, testing the waters as well as looking to jump into the fray, this movie is quite composed enough to set the industry on a satirical fire.
Ameer plays the lead role, while he’s supported well by Chandini in this upcoming high budget film. Adding a twist to the developments in the political world, veteran actors like Anandaraj, Ponvannan, Kanja Karuppu, Iman Annachi, along with Maganathi Shanker, Raj Kapoor, Kasali, Raja Simman, Bava Lakshmanan, Sampath Ram, Vincent Roy, Sevvalai, Sujatha, Jeevitha, Saravana Sakthi have played their roles to satisfaction portraying them effectively as real life political characters. Fight Master Raja Sekar has done a great job to ably support the demands of the story.
Music by Vidyasagar, lyrics by Vairamuthu and Pa. Vijay and choreography by Kalyan, Dhina and Dinesh adds more excitement to the movie. Cinematographer Devaraj has put up an impressive performance with the camera. Kalai is trusted with the art, while Ahamed is the editor.
Ameer, is a director, producer and actor in the Tamil film industry, having directed four films, and has been critically acclaimed for three of his creative pursuits namely Mounam Pesiyadhe, Raam and Paruthiveeran. He also debuted as an actor in Yogi in the year 2009.
