Dasavatharam (stills) unleashed!!!

Yes, something was brewing at the Dasavatharam camp atleast. The first full set of stills and some news was released today.

Not surprisingly, none of the ‘get-ups’ have been revealed. This set of stills just serves as a teaser, marking the start of the publicity in the run-up to the movie’s release.

The stills feature Kamal, Asin and Mallika predominantly. Some of them match with a few released earlier on Mallika’s Web-site.

Some of the rumours that surfaced earlier are now confirmed with the release of these stills.

Other details that have come up:

  • Two more songs are to be picturised. They will cost about 3 crore (30 million) Rupees and sets for the same are being worked upon currently.
  • The audio will be released in October.
  • A fight sequence with Kamal pitted against Kamal himself was shot for 20 days, employing a Hollywood stunt director. Another chase sequence was filmed in Chidambaram.
  • While Asin dubs for herself for the first time, Kamal is supposed to have used a different voice for each character he plays. Meanwhile, 5000 people have dubbed for a scene involving around 10000 people!
  • English and Japanese linguists have been used for the movie.
  • Several directors have acted in the movie.

Today’s news seems to indicate that a Diwali release isn’t likely. We are probably looking at December.

Read detailed reports and enjoy more stills on The Hindu, Sify.com, Behindwoods and IndiaGlitz.

More VV updates

Vaettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu

While Vaettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu continues to burn the box-office charts and also the comments section on this blog, we have some more updates related to the movie.

The United States Consul General in Chennai, David Hopper watched the movie in a private screening, reports The Hindu.

Unlike Hollywood films, Indian films were a mix of music, drama, action … I thoroughly enjoyed watching the film,” Mr. Hopper said.

Meanwhile, Gautham opened up in an inter-college cultural festival. Excerpts:

In justification of all the gore and violence in his latest movie, `Vettaiyadu Vilayadu’, the director said that the film was meant to disturb the people.

He claimed that `Vettaiyadu Vilayadu’ was among the first films in recent times to have unparalleled technical finesse.

…the director had ended up hero-worshipping Kamal Hassan in `Vettaiyadu Vilayadu’. “I guess the fan of Kamal in me could not be suppressed,” responded the director.

VV: cry wolf?

Vaettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu poster

We have been awaiting Vaettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu for a long while now. Though various pieces of news and rumours keep appearing, there has been a hesitation to publish any of those as posts. Finally, at a stage when we have almost been numbed, this round of news seems to be really true. Today, I even saw ads in newspapers!

VV is releasing on August 25 (this Friday). Get more details here and there. Check out the official Web-site too.

This makes it double-sweet for Kamal fans, with Dasavatharam having been launched just a few days ago. You can see fans eagerly predicting which theatres in Chennai will screen it.

Dasavatharam begins…

Dasavatharam started rolling yesterday as announced earlier. Obviously, posters were out in Chennai city and so were ads in newspapers. Thanks to soonapaana.blogspot.com, we get to see them here (including the Hindi version).

Good to see curiousity being aroused. But one is also reminded of the hype and build-up of Aalavandhaan.

Meanwhile, the news is that the funding for Dasavatharam is done upto 50% by Pyramid Saimira. If I remember right, this group is also involved in setting up digital theatres across the country. If they also take care of releasing the movie, it might just be the kind of digital distribution that Kamal has talked about many times over.
