It is not the budget that determines whether a film is successful or not. The film Moondru Mudichu, which starred Rajinikanth, Kamal and Sridevi was made at a cost of `10 lakhs and was a blockbuster hit,” stated ace director K.S. Ravikumar during the audio launch of Chandikuthirai. The film has Chinnathirai actor Rajkamal in the lead.
Manasa debuts as the heroine with this film. Anbumathi, a short story writer, who has directed and scripted many TV serials wields the megaphone. “It is a comedy thriller which talks about the darker side of the selfie craze—whether the advent of technology is a boon or bane.” Varasri composes the music.
Rajkamal is a popular television star, who wanted to make a mark in tinsel town. Apparently, the actor has turned down several TV soaps for film opportunities. With his debut movie Mael Naattu Marumagan is gearing up for release, the actor has bagged his second movie Chandikuthirai.
Comedian Ganja Karuppuu will be back to K’town after a gap. Vaarashri, a well-known name in the devotional circuit for his lyrics, has been roped in for music. “Finally, my hard work has paid off! Chandikuthirai is an interesting subject and I have given my hundred percent,” Rajkamal says.
