Iyakunar Imayam Bharathiraja was last seen in directorial action for ‘Bommalattam’. It was a multi starrer with Arjun and Nana Patekar in lead roles. ‘Bommalattam’ got a lot of critical acclaim. Later Bharathiraja was seen as a big time actor in ‘Rettaichuzzi’ this year. Now the legend is back at what he does best.
Bharathiraja is all ready to wield the megaphone for a heartfelt rural epic. The film is tentatively titled ‘Appan Aatha’. It is a story of three brothers and a leading wise man. Cheran, Ameer and Seeman have been finalised to play the brothers and for the other lead role Bharathiraja has spoken to Cheeyan Vikram.
Bharathiraja is hopeful that Vikram will accept the offer. But just in case if Vikram doesn’t show serious interest Bharathiraja has decided to play the role himself.
Another new thing in the film is that Harris Jayaraj has been signed to score the music for this hard core village subject. This will be the first time Harris Jayaraj is working on a rural film. Interestingly Bharathiraja had made even AR Rahman to score for his village film ‘Kizhakku Cheemaiyile’ years ago.
