After a series of movies playing the angry young man, Vijay returns to romance in Sachin, a movie directed by debutant John (son of veteran director Mahendran).

A mega-budget film, Sachin stars Genelia D'Souza, the girl who made her debut as Harini in Boys and sex siren Bipasha Basu trying her luck in Kollywood for the first time.

In the movie, Vijay plays a carefree youth who does everything according to his wish.

A fashion technology student, he comes across Genelia in the campus and falls in love with her.

Bipasha Basu plays a lecturer in the movie. She does perform an item number too in the movie.

A major portion of the movie was shot in Ooty and the rest in Campa Cola sets in Chennai. A couple of songs are being shot in Iceland and Switzerland.

John says, "it is an interesting campus love story with Vijay playing a character never attempted before. Interestingly, a major portion of the movie has been shot using a soft lens. It means all scenes would have a rainy or a cloudy backdrop."

In some sense, it will be reminiscent of the days of John's father Mahendran who made soft-focus, dew-kissed emotional drama like Mullum Malarum, Uthiripookal and Nenjathaiy Killathe.

For Vijay it is a return to the days of Kadhalukuu Mariadhai. And obviously he has been enjoying every minute of it.

The music is by Devi Sri Prasad, and he knows the pulse of the modern generation very well.

Producer Kalaipuli Thanu has spent a huge sum to complete the movie. The movie will be released on 14 April along with the likes of Rajni's Chandramukhi and Kamal Haasan's Mumbai Express.

The name Sachin has also evoked huge expectations. Apparently, the hero's name in the film is Sachin.

Now the question is will this Sachin hit a sixer at the box office.
