Expectations getting bigger for 'Engeyum Kaadhal'

Actor-choreographer-director Prabhu Deva's breezy entertainer Engeyum Kaadhal, starring Jayam Ravi and Hansika Motwani in the lead roles, is all set to grace theatres this Friday (06-May-2011). Music composed by Harris Jayaraj is already popular and is topping the charts.
The man behind a few super successful potboilers is back. The multitasker Prabhu Deva, who juggles many hats at the same time, is resorting to love with his new directorial venture in Tamil Engeyum Kadhal.

Engeyum Kadhal was rechristened a few times. It was initially called Paris; presumably keeping in mind the tax rebate thing, it was later renamed as Ich. It had Ich for a working title for a long time until Engeyum Kadhal came along and stuck. Completely shot outside India, Engeyum Kadhal might bring to Tamil its first NRI love story that was riding high for so long in Hindi movies.
It is touted that this film will prove very successful for ‘Jayam’ Ravi, for whom success has been eluding of late. Ravi is at the moment neck deep into his next project with Ameer titled ‘Aadhi Bhagavan.’ He plays a character quite contrary to his role in ‘Engeyum Kadhal.’

Songs of Engeyum Kadhal is also picturized in other parts of the world. The crew flew to Sydney to can a few songs and the neighboring beautiful locales of France as well. Engeyum Kadhal’s cast also includes Suman, Raju Sundaram, Marion Arnaud, Aurelien Chevallier and Prabhu Deva himself performing a cameo role.
The film has music by Harris Jeyaraj and consists of 7 sound tracks, distributed by Sony Music label. The album is received fairly positively by critics and fans alike. In addition to music, Harris also has penned lyrics for the song Kulu Kulu Venpani Pola. This song was later added in the track listing and sung by debut singer Arjun.

Prabhu Deva says that the story of the movie works in the opposite manner when compared to other Tamil movies. In Engeyum Kadhal, it is the girl who falls for the guy and not the other way round according to the director.
So it defies the usual logic for starters. Essentially Hansika Motwani gets besotted by Jayam Ravi and the movie revolves around their life and times in Paris.

"I was thoroughly impressed with the story the moment Prabhu Deva narrated it to me. I always wanted to work with him and my longtime wish has come true with 'Engeyum Kadhal'," says Ravi, hero of the rom-com Kollywood flick.

The film received a clean 'U' certificate from the Censor Board recently.

Produced by the Kalpathy Agoram group, Engeyum Kadhal is releasing this weekend and is distributed by Sun Pictures.
