It has been officially announced by producer H. Murali that his film Vaaliba Raja starring Santhanam and Sethu, the hit combination from the 2013 super-hit film Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya, would be releasing in theatres next Friday i.e. on 24th September.
Billed as sequel to Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya, Vaaliba Raja has Vishakha Singh (who played the solo heroine in Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya) who plays one of the two heroines in the film along with debutant Nushrat Bharucha. Others in the cast include Jayaprakash, VTV Ganesh, Sriranjani, Devadarshini and Neelima Rani. Radhan is the film’s music director while S. Lokanathan is the cinematographer.
The makers have chosen a Thursday to release the film apparently to cash in on the festive mood and the State-wide celebrations on that day as Bakrid is observed on 24th September. Sai Gokul Ramanath, who had earlier assisted K.V. Anand in his films, turns director with Vaaliba Raja. It’s an out-and-out family entertainer which would be pleasing to the eyes and ears, asserts Ramanath.
“Santhanam has essayed a psychiatrist’s role; his appearance for the role has been modeled after Hollywood film-makers Woody Allen’s appearance. The film won’t be short of comic sequences and it is also the first-ever psycho-comic thriller in the country,” Ramanath adds.
