Director Mani Ratnam has announced the title of his upcoming multi-starrer. Produced by Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions together, this movie is beautifully titled as Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. As announced before, this movie has Arvind Swamy, Silambarasan, Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari and Aishwarya Rajesh in the leads.
Mani Ratnam has released details of many more cast and crew. One of the new members is Arun Vijay, who is quite unexpected. Along with him, Prakash Raj, Thiagarajan, Mansoor Ali Khan, Jayasudha, and newcomer Diana have also been roped in. The music, cinematography and lyrics are handled by Mani Ratnam's favourites A.R. Rahman, Santosh Sivan and Vairamuthu respectively.
During the discussion of this movie, it was speculated that Arvind Swamy and Simbu would play brothers and Vijay Sethupathi might be playing a cop. Now that the title is released, it is also said that it might be a romantic film. However, since this is a multi-starrer, it might also be a movie with love and action combined together. Whether all the characters in the movie would get meaty roles to play is something that we should wait and watch.
The hashtag for the movie in social media is #CCV.
