Mexican cinematographer Rodrigo is cranking the camera for Joker hero Guru Somasundaram’s new film ‘Vanjagar Ulagam’. The film is being directed by Manoj Beedha, a former associate of SP Jananathan of Peranmai fame.
Talking about Vanjagar Ulagam, Manoj said “ Vanjagar Ulagam is an out and out romantic thriller, which also has shades of gangster elements in it. This is a very differently handled story. My friend Vinayak who has worked with Vignesh Sivan, is the story writer of the film. I can confidently say this story and screenplay will be very fresh and challenging for the audience. Every character was very carefully casted and very well performed.
Especially Guru Somasundaram, who plays a gangster is such a delight for any director. He conceived the scenes in an entirely different way and gave an output that was way beyond my high expectations. In fact, for one of the scenes, he did a portion for about 5-6 minute shot in a single take and amazed us. We actually had to make few changes in the script because of his performance. He is such a strength for our movie.
Another interesting feature of this film is that we roped in a Mexican cinematographer Rodrigo for the movie. His work will surely be talked about in the industry. Actor Vishakan Vanangamudi’s character and performance in this movie will be one of the sure highlights of the movie. I am very happy and excited about the way the movie is coming out.
The post-production work is going on at a rapid pace and we are planning to launch the first look very soon”.
