Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Tamil Comments

Director Shankar's  films are known for rendering quality films. Kadhal stood for its simplicity and honesty. If that touched a raw and sensitive nerve inside the viewers,  Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi with comedian Vadivelu in the lead role, will reach for the funny bone. Monica and Nandhita are the leading ladies.

According to producer Shankar, 'After 28 years a Tamil movie would be centered around the happenings of a historical period - the King and Queen era'.

This is a historical movie. It will be a fun-filled laughathon. It is a difficult genre. But the team hopes to pull it off. It is something on the lines of the famous Hollwywood flick of the 80s History of the World.

Keeping up with the trend of promoting new talents, Shankar entrusted Simbhudevan with the responsibility of the story, screenplay, dialogues and direction. The debutant has been an associate of Cheran.

The supporting cast is impressive in the form of Nagesh, Manorama, Nasser, Vennira Adai Moorthy, Sriman and Ilavarasu.

The other credits are: Cinematography: Arthur Wilson,  Art: P Krishnamurthy, Songs: Pulamaipithan, Stunt: Super Subbarayan, Editing: Sasikumar, Dance: Sivasankar and Music: Sabesh Murali.

According to Simbudevan, 'It is a hilarious comedy film from the start to end. Shankar gave me enough liberty and encouraged me to come out with a quality film. Without his encouragement, we would not have completed the film.'

Since historical films are a rarity these days, we thought it would be appropriate to try out a comedy in a historical movie. Intensive research was done to present realism in the film, he added.

On choosing  Vadivelu for the lead role, he said, 'Since it is a comical movie we  thought an actor like Vadivelu would fit in. He has done a commendable job.' On his part Vadivelu, said, 'It was a challenge indeed to play the lead role. It has come good and I hope the audience will appreciate our effort'.

History is no joke. But to present it in that form, needs a serious mind. We will know soon whether Simbudevan has that or not.
