If you were among those who enjoyed the off-beat road movie in Tamil, Orange Mittai, which featured Vijay Sethupathi in the lead, then, there’s good news for you.
Vijay Sethupathi and the director of Orange Mittai, Biju have apparently joined hands for another film called Chennai Palani Mars.
However, this time, Sethupathi will not be acting in the film will be penning the dialogues for the film and jointly producing it.
Says a source, “The film is being jointly produced by Vijay Sethupathi’s firm, Vijay Sethupathi Productions along with Orange Mittai Productions. A set of fresh talents are being introduced in this film. Praveen Raja, Rajesh Giriprasad, Vasant Marimuthu, Imthias Mohammed, Vin Haadri, are getting introduced as actors.”
The film, sources say, is about a person’s ambition to go to the planet Mars. “Every person has a dream which they want to realise. A few make their dreams come true by their efforts, a few lose out after a struggle and some others let go of their dreams half way through. Chennai Palani Mars is about a man’s efforts to realize his dream. The film does not fall under one genre. It can be termed a black comedy, a fantasy film and a road movie all put together.”
Ravikumar, Pari Elavazhangan, Madhankumar Dhakshinamoorthy, Allwin Ramaiah, R. Krishnamoorthy and have played important roles in the movie. Niranjan Babu is debuting as the music director and Vignesh Jeyapal has written the lyrics for the songs.
