The audio-launch of the film Kazhugu which was held yesterday in the city witnessed a huge turn-out of Kollywood stars, directors and fans. For a film sans big stars, the audio-launch was surely a jam-packed affair. The film marks the return to action in respect of Krishna, who was last seen in last year’s Katradhu Kalavu.
It pairs Bindu Madhavi of Veppam fame opposite Krishna. Bindu, a name to reckon with in the Telugu film industry, makes another attempt to establish herself as a bankable actress in Kollywood. The actress was entrusted with the responsibility of hosting the show that evening. Expectedly, she spoke in Tanglish i.e. she spoke in English for most part of the event and added Tamil words at times.
Insiders say Bindu has put in an excellent performance in the film, named after superstar Rajinikanth’s super-hit film of the same name which released three decades back in 1981. All the three songs screened on the occasion, composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, came in for lot of appreciation. Krishna plays an youth, who is trained in the art of rescuing people attempting suicides in hilly areas such as Ooty.
As per the script, Krishna unexpectedly falls in love: the kind of love totally unexpected from a man whose heart had seen many gruesome deaths and had become very hard. The love affair which strikes him at a time when people around him think that he is a man with no ‘emotions’ at all is the highlight of the film. Those on-stage congratulated director Sathya Siva and predicted that he could very well become the next ‘Bala’ of Kollywood.
