It has been almost 13 years that the movie SandaKozhi was released. The movie had Vishal, Meera Jasmine and RajKiran in the main role’s. The movie did very well at the box office. Now its time for a sequel. SandaKozhi 2, will have Vishal again. The movie is said to be a Tamil action drama. The movie will be by Vishal Film Factory, Pen studios, directed by N.Lingusamy. The music is scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The main star cast has Keethi Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Raj kiran and others. The movie is scheduled to release 18th October 2018.
Vishal’s fan’s will definitely be expecting an action packed movie like in the first part of the movie, SandaKozhi has great fight sequences which was one of the reason why the movie did well. In addition to this fan’s will expect some fierce punch dialogue’s with hidden message’s. Though the trailer hints about satisfying these needs of fan’s at the same time it also looks too very commercial.
As a general audience who is not a fan of a specific hero, will definitely have an idea what to expect from a Vishal movie. Sandai Kozhi was not only an action movie but also a family subject and lot of family sentiments. Not to forget that Sandai kozhi’s songs were really good. So audience will expect the same kind of family drama and great music as it was in the first part.
The movie has set a very high expectation before its release because the popular duo Vetri maran and Dhanush are coming back together after quite some time. Vada Chennai looks like to be a story of a fisherman from North Chennai(Vada Chennai) and he without knowledge falls prey to a mafia gang. It is to noted that Dhanush has not had a movie released yet this year. Though he has a lot of movies in the go in his bag.
The movie is shelved from the year 2015. Dhanush seems to be playing a role of national level carom player. Samuthirakani, Aishwarya rajesh and Andrea Jeremiah will be seen playing important roles.
Dhanush has a varied category of fan following. He is a multi-talented actor so it is obvious to have this kind of fan following, one set of fan’s who likes his movies like any other Dhanush’s commercial movie like VIP. And another set of fan’s are the one’s who like his versatile side like in Polladhavan, Mariyaan… this set of fan’s are holding high expectation. The reason being the comeback of Vetrimaran & Dhanush combo who gave a Polladhavan earlier which turned out to be a massive hit.So what is this movie offering the fans? We have to wait and watch.
General Audience Expectation
Dhanush movies are always know for his punch dialogues, songs and comedy. It looks like the movie will able to satisfy the general audience who wants to give this movie a try. Because the trailer and first looks pretty promising to all sort of audience.
Thala Ajith’s Viswasam is currently in brisk shooting pace directed by Siva (like his last 3 movies). We already reported that only one song and one fight sequence is pending.
Aram movie’s producer Kotapadi Rajesh has bought this film Tamilnadu Distribution rights for Viswasam.
It has been sold out for a humongous price from Tamil Nadu Distribution rights (around 47 crores!) and the distributor says that he expect movie to collect worldwide gross of 200 crores and become the best grossing thala Ajith movie ever.
Viswasam is being bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi Films. The music has been composed by D. Imman collaborating for the first time with Ajith.
Just few days before the 2point0 movie teaser was released on September 13th, In the Canadian film festival, international entertainment magazine Variety called 2point0 as a “75 million dollar VFX wonder” since then every one India started talking that the movie’s VFX alone costed 75 million dollars. And there were complaints as well after teaser that it is not upto the hype and not looking like a 75 million dollar VFX, even many converted 75 million dollar to Indian rupees of nearly 540 crores (1 million dollar=7.2 crores) and complained that 540 million on VFX sending is not seen in the teaser output.
The real details on that is 75 million dollar is the total budget of the movie plus promotional costs, that include Audio launch held in Dubai, Trailer launch planned to be held in Chennai in grand way in November, weeks before release date November 29th and then marketing costs. Considering all this the actual making cost of the movie including the artists and technicians salary is nearly 60 Million dollar. Converting in Indian rupees will make it nearly 450 crore rupees. Rajnikanth and Akshay’s Salary itself will be around 20% plus of that number.
So actual VFX spending which is 30% of the making cost of 450 crores comes to nearly 150 crores
This is a rough number which is also confirmed by director Shankar in his interview with Rajeev Masand which makes sense.
Let us wait for more official news on 2 point 0 from its makers. The immediate release awaited from the team is the third song from the movie which can be expected anytime during October. This third song titled “Pulinangal” was not released during the audio launch held last year in Dubai.
