Director K S Adhiyaman has carved a niche for himself as a director, whose films
carry family themes. They dwell on human emotions. His films including
‘Thootasinungi’ and ‘Priyasakhi’ were widely acclaimed. Having made a name for
himself in Bollywood with few successful movies, director Adhiyaman is back in
Tamil with ‘Thoondil’. The movie starring Shaam, Sandhya and Dhivya aka Ramya
will hit the screens very soon.
It was shot completely in London. Interestingly Sandhya plays the mother role
and Shaam plays her husband. According to Adhiyaman, ‘The movie has a different
storyline that would appease womenfolk. Amidst action-packed flicks in Kollywood,
‘Thoondil’ would be a movie with a movie sans gory violence or bloodshed. All
the characters have their best on the screen’.
Shaam is pinning all his hopes on Thoondil and is upbeat about the movie's
fortunes at the box office. Dhivya, who played glamorous roles in movies
including ‘Kuthu’ and ‘Giri’, has been cast in a powerful role. “The character
has been etched out in an excellent manner”, she says. Dhivya's role has a
major say in the movie. She provides the right turn and twist in the story.
Vivek plays the comical role in ‘Thoondil’.
