Chiyaan Vikram’s ‘Deiva Thirumagal’ did change a lot of things for the talented actor. The movie was appreciated for it’s carefully locked in script and a superb performance from the entire crew, with Chiyaan stealing the show slipping into the brains of a mentally challenged 5 year old. More than that the flick can be seen as a good omen for the hero who has underwent a sea of change in his working style.
Known to take up just one or maximum two flick’s per year, post DT Chiyaan seems to be on a mission to satisfy his hungry fans who have always wanted to see more of their hero. While he will be up with his Rajapattai this Christmas, Vikram also has period-drama Karikalan coming up, playing a ferocious warrior. Amidst all these offers he seems to have caught a fancy for a new script which was narrated to him by promising young director Salim Ahamed whose recent flick Adaminte Makan Abu grabbed headlines for entering the Oscar race in best foreign film category. This new role has Vikram playing Kunjali Marakkar a Muslim naval chief in the 16th century. We are told that Salim and Vikram had a brief talk over the script and then they met face to face to discuss things over with both parties eager to take things forward.
If things materialize Chiyaan will be seen in what can be considered an award winning flick from the Oscar nominated director.
