Looks like, it isn’t just the hardcore fans of Jayam Ravi, but even the filmmakers like Pradeep Ranganathan have been looking up for this. With the actor continuously showing up with angry young man roles including his previous release “Adanga Maru”, the tall handsome actor will completely appearing in contrastive avatar(s) in ‘Comali’, which is a full length family entertainer laced with comedy and emotions.
Director Pradeep Ranganathan says, “Yes, we have tried making a comedy entertainer with family elements. Over the past few years, we have been watching Jayam Ravi sir perform serious roles in movies like Thani Oruvan and Adanga Maru. This will have a family drama with the equal mix of fun and emotions. It also deals with the contemporary crisis involving the negativities spread through social media platforms and has a good message by end. More than all, what’s going to be interesting is Jayam Ravi sir appearing in 9 different get ups and one involving the 90s makeover will be more intriguing. Yogi Babu will be seen more like a character artiste than being a routine comedian and will be seen throughout the movie. KS Ravikumar sir plays an important role in this movie. There are few other actors in the film, who will pep up the film with entertainment quotients like Bijili Ramesh, Ponnambalam. We have introduced RJ Anandhi of YouTube Paridhaabangal fame and she will be performing an intense character in the movie. Kajal Agarwal being such a well experienced actress, she always was keen on improvising even the minute acts. Every time, I would see both Jayam Ravi and Kajal Aggarwal together, I felt there’s something magical about this pair and am sure audiences will feel the same. The script actually demanded for a substantial female character that needs to be more expressive and we felt Kannada actress Samyuktha Hegde will do perfect justice to it. She has already become the sensation of south through the Kannada movie Kirrik Party. We are sure that her performance as one of the female lead roles will be definitely noted and appreciated.”
The filmmaker extends up his words of praises for music director Hiphop Tamizha saying, “He has become the musical emblem of youth and he has offered the most enjoyable songs in this film. Especially the song ‘Paisa Nottu’ will be surely looked upon for its musical score and grander production values. It’s an imaginative song on a Temple being built for Kamal Aggarwal and what if the temple was a pub. The song has come out really well and we are looking forward to the crowds for enjoying it.”
Produced by Ishari K Ganesh for Vels Film International, Comali has already completed its shoot and the post-production work is going on full stretch. Richard M Nathan is handling cinematography and Praveen KL is on editing.
