It seems there is not going to be any film release this year for Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Hassan after his much delayed release Vettayadu Vilayadu in late 2006. The actor's much-talked film Dasavatharam was expected to counter Shivaji-The Boss on June 15. But later, it was said that the film will be a Deepavali release. But the latest rumour doing rounds is that its release will be further postponed, and the movie may hit the screens only in 2008 for Pongal.
Featuring Kamal Hassan in ten different roles, the movie features Asin, Mallika Sherawat and Nepoleon in key roles. Musical score is by Himesh Reshamiyya, and direction is by K. S. Ravi Kumar. Kamal himself has penned the script and the dialogues.
As of now, the crew of Dasavatharam is engaged in completing the talky portion of the film by the end of September. After this, two songs will be picturised in foreign locations and a lot of graphics work also has to be done to give shape to the film as per the actor's wish.
It is an uphill task for any director to complete a movie within 2 months, and K.S.Ravikumar and his men need more time. It is said that the post production work itself is likely to take 3 months after the completion of the shoot.
