Mani Ratnam along with his Kadal film unit finally met Tamil media before press earlier today (January 15). They have been avoiding media from the day the film hit the floors to generate curiosity among audience.
The press meet was held at at Rani Seethai Hall, Chennai and it was attended by Suhasini Rathnam, Arjun Sarja, Arvind Swamy, Lakshmi Manchu, Gautham Karthik, Karthik, Thulasi Nair, Vairamuthu AR Rahman and others.
The only person, who was missing from the event, was Radha, the mother of debutant Thulasi Nair. The event was wrapped up in less than one hour and the entire team spoke to each other and shared the work experience. Mani Ratnam went ahead and thanked Oscar Award winner AR Rahman for giving wonderful tunes and the musician called the director as his guru.
However, Kadal will hit the screens on February 1 worldwide in Tamil and Telugu versions. It marks the debut of Gautham, the son of actor Karthik, and Thulasi Nair, the daughter of actress Radha. Arjun Sarja, Arvind Swamy and Lakshmi Manchu are in important roles.
The movie is all about good versus evil. It narrates the story of an individual caught between sin and redemption.
