Kalla Thuppakki was in the news recently as its producer K.C. Ravidevan, an aide of ‘Ulaganayagan’ Kamal Haasan, had filed a case with a Chennai Court seeking ban on the use of the title of Vijay-Kajal Aggarwal starrer Thuppakki saying that he was the one who had formally registered the title of Kalla Thuppakki first with the Producers’ Council.
The case had been going on for the past few months but brought to an end last week thanks to an ‘out-of-Court’ settlement reached by the producers of both the films. Kalla Thuppakki has garnered enough publicity due to the above case and this has apparently made Ravidevan consider releasing his film on Deepavali next month along with big films such as Thuppakki, Poda Podi, etc.
The crew had ‘rehearsed’ the shoot of all the sequences prior to the beginning of the film’s actual shoot and due to proper planning and execution the entire shoot had been completed in 120 days’ time. Starring an entire cast of promising and talented newcomers, the post-production work including dubbing and re-recording are over and the film is now all set to hit the screens.
In an effort to infuse some novelty in the script’s narration, the director has used the technique of ‘intercut’ in depicting many sequences in the film. Produced in a grand manner certainly not befitting a film full of newcomers, Kalla Thuppakki is gearing up to take on the other biggies on the day when the whole country would be celebrating by bursting crackers.
Vicky, Vijith, Prabhakaran, Tamilselvan and ‘Kutty’ Anand are the ‘heroes’ of the script while Shavanthika, a newcomer from the neighbouring Kerala, debuts as heroine in the film. Vasanth is the film’s cinematographer while Balachandran is the music director. Debutant director Logiyas has penned the story, screenplay and dialogues besides directing the film.
