Om Ombama – Yes! a flick featuring US president Barack Hussein Obama.And if it still din’t tinkle your brain cells,let us tell you that this one is going to be in Tamil .The movie will  be made by Janaki  Viswanathan featuring Obama via cutouts and posters .It is known that even a song dedicated solely to the president will be  present in the movie titled Om Obama.

Paul. J has been chosen as music director for this one and is confirmed to give 4 tracks for the movie.

One of the songs goes like `Obama nee vaama, koode serndhu aadalama‘ (Come Obama, shall we dance together). It is also the first Tamil movie to feature an Urdu song.

Janaki  Viswanathan is a journalist by profession who later turned to making movies. And Om Obama turns out to be  Janaki Viswanathan’s third venture as a filmmaker , the first one being Kutty (Special International Jury Award in Cairo International Children’s Film Festival in Egypt,it also won the National award) dealt with the theme of a girl forced to do child labor .Kanavu Meippada Vendum which came about in 2004 speaks about the troubles faced by a dancer as she grows up.

 

Om Obama story outline:

The movie inspired by a a real life situation of an Indian community at  a garment export unit which is being set up in a village in Kedarapalayam and how this brings a radical change in the life of the villagers. But when recession hits the only prayer these villagers have is that Obama gets elected as the president. They feel only he can bring relief to their misery.

The flick which wont take much time to shoot i.e. only 35 days is expected to hit screens at the closing end of 2010.The movie is to be released keeping in mind the international audience as the film will feature subtitles.

Obama’s current visit to the country has made his presence felt very much in India and no doubt a movie starring the president himself will create waves.

Seems like the journalist really knows how to play her deck of cards. /”>Om Ombama – Yes! a flick featuring US president Barack Hussein Obama.And if it still din’t tinkle your brain cells,let us tell you that this one is going to be in Tamil .The movie will  be made by Janaki  Viswanathan featuring Obama via cutouts and posters .It is known that even a song dedicated solely to the president will be  present in the movie titled Om Obama.
