After casting a spell on the audience by playing the role of an ‘angry young man’ in last year’s superhit film VIP, Dhanush is all set to play yet another interesting role. This time it’s for his upcoming film, Anegan. Directed by ace filmmaker K. V. Anand, this film is touted to be a romantic-thriller. As the film is gearing up for release, we give you 5 reasons why you should watch this romantic drama.
1. K. V. Anand
After delivering hits like Ayan and Kho, director K. V. Anand is back with his latest film Anegan. Known for addressing social issues in his films, this national award-winning cinematographer-turned-filmmaker is said to have put a new spin on commercial cinema with his latest film by uniquely showcasing the concept of love.
Did you know that the actor Vijay was the first choice for Anegan? Yes, that’s indeed true. After turning it down due to scheduling conflicts, the actor then suggested Dhanush’s name to the director. And that’s how Dhanush bagged the role. Recently the actor has garnered rave reviews for his performance in R.Balki’s Shamitabh. The star performer will be seen in four different looks for in this film. Talk about versatility!
3. Unique story
Anegan, which means ‘not one person, but many’ has been adapted from one of the most profound works in Tamil literature – Thiruvasagam. The film is said to deal with the concept of love and how lovers are torn apart by issues other than caste and religious differences. From what we’ve seen in the trailer, it looks like a film that delves into the subject of reincarnation. Although we were a little sceptical about this age-old subject being recycled, the trailer took us by surprise. The surprise element is that the story spans across different timelines.
4. The locations
Some of the film’s sequences were shot in the exotic locations of Vietnam and Cambodia. You should remember, K. V. Anand is the same filmmaker who captured the exquisite beauty of China and Norway. We are pretty sure this movie will be visually stunning.
A popular hero of the ’90s, Navarasa Nayagan Karthik, is said to make a strong comeback with this film. The buzz is that Karthik, who will be donning the greasepaint after a long hiatus, will be seen in negative role in this film.
So, get, set and go on a journey of love that’ll take you to different eras. Produced by AGS entertainment the film is said to release on February 13th.
