Arun Vijay’s ‘Thadam’ from 1 March

“Magizh is one of the important filmmakers in my career who gave me an identity with Thadayara Thaaka. We are teaming up again for the crime thriller Thadam with a fascinating subject. I am essaying a dual role for the first time and there’s a justification in me doing both the roles,” says Arun Vijay.

Says the filmmaker, “It has multiple layers. It talks how parents affect us, an individual’s relationship with the society, an individual’s relationship with law and individual’s ways of handling his own inadequacies. It won’t be heavy or arty kind. I have presented it in a commercial format.”

On the three heroines, he asserts, “I am introducing Tanya Hope and Smrithi Venkat besides Vidya Pradeep.”

He added, “The movie has the potential to explore the nuances and talent of the actor and also he will get more girl fans after the film.”

Thadam is all set to release on 1 March 1. The film bankrolled by Inder Kumar has music by Arun Raj, cinematography by Gopinath and editing by NB Srikanth. The stunts have been taken care by Stunt Silva and Anbariv.
