Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kochadaiyaan has become one of the most eagerly awaited films not only by his millions of fans buty by the movie-goers as well. The common man is dying to see how Rajini looks on-screen in his first film after he recovered from a kidney disorder which required him to get admitted to a Singapore hospital for treatment last year.
The film, billed as the country’s first animation film to be made in 3-D mode, stars Deepika Padukone, Shobana, Rukmani Vijayakumar, Sarath Kumar, Jacike Shroff, Aadhi, Nasser and many others. Though it’s not a typical Rajini film by no stretch of imagination as it’s an animation film, the film has become a source of strength for Rajini’s fans as it’s the first film of the superstar to release after his Enthiran: The Robot.
Rahman has scored the film’s music which has five songs besides a ‘theme’ song. The film’s crew first shot in London and its surrounding areas and then moved to Kerala where a long shooting schedule was held. Rajini and Co. then moved to Hong Kong for what is said to be the final leg of the film’s shoot. As it’s an animation film, the shooting portions are far less compared to an ordinary film.
Rajini has sung a song in the film which has only added to the curiosity quotient. It’s the first song sunt by Rajini after more than two decades. Rajini last sung a song in his 1992 super-hit film Mannan which was a popular duet number along with the irrepressible S. Janaki. This song in Kochadaiyaan, penned by Vairamuthu, has come out very well, according to the crew. Rajini has also sung the song in the Hindi version too.
As of now, the makers are reportedly planning to release the film’s audio in the last week of June to be followed by the film’s theatrical release is likely in September. Sony Music has acquired the film’s audio rights. The film is likely to be released in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, English and in Japanese languages.
