Arjun back in his ‘saviour’ act in Kaattupuli


Arjun Kaattupuli

‘Action king’ Arjun is back with his usual ‘saviour’ avatar in his upcoming film titled Kaattupuli(Wild Tiger). The film, which has been made trilingual in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, has been directed by popular Bollywood stunt choreographer Tinu Verma. The script is about the travails of 3 couples who get caught in dense jungle where they land up on an adventurous trip which started as a fun-filled activity.

They invariably seek the help of Arjun, who plays a doctor, to bail them out. Popular Kannada actress Biyanka Desai would be debuting as heroine in Tamil with this film opposite Arjun. Baby Dhanya plays the daughter of Arjun and Biyanka. The three couples are played by newcomers in ‘Mr. India’ title winner Rajneesh, former beauty queen Sayali Bagath, Miss Assam Hanaya, Amith, Jahan and Jennifer.

The film has been shot widely and extensively in the jungles around Mumbai. Arjun, who is probably the only long-standing ‘action hero’ in the South, has reportedly dazzled in stunt sequences in the film which also shows cannibal (human flesh eaters). Verma assures that the film is not a violent one but would be an engrossing and gripping tale intended to give the viewers a whole new experience.

The film also features a lip-lock sequence between Jahan and Jennifer lasting two minutes. The Censors, which watched the movie last month, cleared this particular sequence after 14 cuts. The film is all set to hit the screens worldwide next Friday i.e. on 17th February in three languages viz., Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

Vijay Verma has composed music of this movie. It remains to be seen whether Tinu Verma, who has won 7 Filmfare awards for his stunt choreography in films over the past two decades, is able to taste success as a film-maker as well!
