Itihaasam and Red  

Click here for Citizen photo gallery As soon as 'Citizen' got completed Saravana Subbaiah had immersed himself in the script of 'Itihaasam' and Ajith was concentrating on 'Red'. Now that these two projects have ended, the twosome unites again.

After 'Itihaasam', nobody will even speak about caste again' - the story's drawing such comments.

2 heroines - one's Simran, the other's an import from Mumbai, as usual.

Since Balakumaran's dialogues had helped 'Citizen' a lot, this time 'Sujatha' pens the dialogues.



Roaring Success 'Red' Songs

Click here for Red Photo Gallery There's something about Deva-Ajith combination. It started with 'Aasai' and the duo is continuing its victory trail with 'Red'.

'Red' has 6 songs. 3 of them are wonderful, fantastic and whoa!

Tippu's 'Thaai Madiye', S.P.B's 'Red Red', K.K and Anuradha Sriram's 'Ollikuchchi Udambukkaari' - these three songs are expected to contribute heavily to the success of the movie. T.Rajendran's son Silambarasan has sung a mediocre 'Til Til Italy Kattil'. Vairamuthu had tried to highlight the speciality of each country in the song. But loud music and prolonged voice vibrations in the guise of style had destroyed the lyrics and the soul of the song!

The two films that won the most awards were "Dum Dum Dum" and "Anandam".


 Ajith’s eagerly awaited Diwali release Red has been postponed to pongal 2002. Ajith does not want to clash with Kamalhassan’s Alavanthan and Vijay’s Shajahan and three other biggies due for Diwali. It was a shrewd move by Ajith as there are hardly any big movies due for Pongal.
Meanwhile Ajith has already started work on his next project Ramachandra to be directed by old faithful Raj Kapoor, who gave him films like Aval Varuvala and Ananda Poonkatrai during his struggling days. Like Red, Ramachandra will also be catering to the B and C centres and the film is said to be a rehash of an old MGR film.

Ajith is desperate to reach the villages of Tamilnadu, where he is on a sticky wicket compared to Vijay.


Priya Gill, Ajith in Right
 NIC Arts, the producers of Vaale, Mugavari and Citizen, all box-office hits starring Ajith, have signed Priya Gill to play the female lead opposite Ajith in Right. Ajith sports a bald pate for this film.
Directed by debutant Ram Satya (former associate of Sundar C), the film has music by Deva and cinematography by Rajsekar. Shooting of the film started at Annapoorna Studios where art director Sabu Cyril has erected a part of Madurai town for the film. Salim Ghouse, who was at one time very popular in Tamil films as the villain, makes a comeback in this film with Rajan P Dev, Raghuvaran, Manivannan and Srividya.


Pre-release jitters
 Is Ajith unhappy with Poovellam Unn Vasam? Ajith saw the film at a special preview and is reported to have fretted and fumed at its director Ezhil. The film, which was launched almost a year back, does not have the storyline to suit Ajith’s current superstar image. To be fair to Ezhil he had incorporated a fight scene and a song with Yukta Mookhey after the first copy was ready. But in the Yukta Mookhey song, Ajith looks shorter than the beauty queen and has conspicuously avoided close-ups and combination shots. But director Ezhil is confident that the film will be a huge hit among the family audience.
