Over the past few years, Rasu Mathuravan has somehow managed to build up a reputation for him in Kollywood. With films like ‘Mayandi Kudumbathar’ and ‘Goripalayam’ under his belt, Mathuravan is touted as the new ‘K.S.G’ in the industry. KSG refers to K.S. Gopalakrishnan, who is famous for his sentimental films throughout the sixties and seventies.
Mathuravan’s latest film ‘Muthukku Muthaga’ didn’t create any huge waves at the box-office but has been a profitable venture and has just crossed 100 days. It is strongly believed that Ilavarasu, who plays the father of five sons in the film, might even be in line to win the coveted national award for ‘best character actor’ for his role in the film. The English sub-titling of the film is being done at present as Mathuravan wants to send the film to various Film Festivals across the globe.
Rasu’s next film would be ‘Pakki’, which is a city-based story and has Raghava Lawrence as the hero. The film, which is produced by K. Balu of K.B. Films (remember his ‘Chinnathambi’ starring Prabhu and Khushboo), is unlikely to deviate from the sentiment-based script of Madhuravan, a Unit source claims.
