Director Rajesh is gearing up for the release of his third directorial venture titled Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (OKOK). The film has producer-distributor Udhayanidhi playing the lead role for the first time opposite the bubbly yet curvaceous Hansika. For Hansika, it’s her first major release after the success of Velayudham opposite Vijay which released during Deepavali last year.
As such, Hansika would love to stretch her success story in Kollywood by delivering a hit through OKOK. Rajesh, who has built up a reputation around himself as a director capable of making family entertainers with a high dose of comic sequences, is said to have continued the trend in OKOK. Both his earlier films in Siva Manasula Sakdhi and Boss Engira Baskaran were box-office hits.
The shooting of OKOK had been wrapped up and the post-production work including re-recording and dubbing is in progress, it is reliably learnt. Though Udhayanidhi plays the hero, comedian Santhanam plays an equally prominent role as he did in Rajesh’s earlier films. Santhanam’s chemistry with Jiiva in Siva… and with Aarya in Boss…. were well appreciated by the audiences and played an important role in the success of those films.
For the sake of sentiment, Rajesh has roped in some major stars in Aarya, Andrea Jermaiah and Sneha to play brief ‘guest roles’ in the film. The film has music by Harris Jayaraj who has composed 5 melodious songs for the film. The film’s promos in the print and television media are likely to be out from the 22nd of this month. Rajesh assures that he’s confident of delivering a hat-trick of hits with OKOK.
