plays my lead in the movie. He suits the role
very well; he enacts the role of an innocent
boy in the movie. He is a very good artist.

Engeyum Eppodhum gives you a
lead to the climax and follows it
up from there
us something about the movie’s genre
movie is about something you would go through
in your day to day life. Nobody has ever attempted
to show that in a movie. It’s about
the love and life of two couples. The title
signifies that anything can happen anytime.
It’s about the uncertainty of life.
Usually, movies don’t start and end
at the same place. But Engeyum Eppodhum gives
you a lead to the climax and follows it up
from there. That is the special aspect of
The only combination scenes between Ananya and me
were the climax scenes in the movie. Even then, you
won’t see us both together onscreen. That’s
how the scenes are designed.
How do you feel about the movie; now that
you have finished it?
watching the movie’s screening, I get
the same feeling I got after I finished Angadi
Theru. Many people gave me positive feedback
saying this will fetch me more recognition
than even Angadi Theru. I was impressed with
the movie’s script when it was narrated
to me but I never thought the movie would
bowl people over so much.
Engeyum Eppodhum will fetch
me more recognition than Angadi
Saravanan used to be Murugadoss’s assistant
director and he is very talented. He knows how to
extract work from the artists. He also knows how to
handle the script so as to bring everything into the
movie. The movie doesn’t lack in pace and the
thriller element is intact throughout.
About your cameo
in Mankatha. Why did you accept it?
It’s a man movie. There are about three heroines
in the movie. Since my character provides the lead
to the climax and it had scope for performance, I
accepted the movie. I am really satisfied about the
result. Even after leaving the theatres, audience
will remember my character and that’s precisely
why I took it up.
Tell us about
your movies after Angadi Theru
Thoonga Nagaram, Karungali, Mankatha and Engeyum Eppodhum
are the movies I signed after Angaadi Theru. And Vetothi
Sundaram is releasing, which is a feel good movie.
How did you get
the offer to star in Engeyum Eppodhum?
Murugadoss wanted me in the role since he felt I would
be suitable for the role after watching Angadi Theru.
After watching Engeyum Eppodhum, he told me that I
had done a good job and that the movie has come out
well. He also expressed confidence that his first
production venture will be received well.
About the songs
of the movie
There are 5 songs in the movie. I actually had nothing
much to do in terms of dancing. There is only one
due song Masama and there was only one movement for
me in that. Since the director felt duet songs would
be a distraction from the main story, we did not have
You agreed to
do Mankatha because it was a big banner movie, though
your role was small. Would you do the same thing for
a small banner movie?
It’s not because of Mankatha’s big banner
that I did the movie. I liked my role in the movie.
I will take up a small role that I think will create
an impact even if it’s from a small banner.
scenes in Engeyum Eppodhum you would like to tell
It would have to be the climax, which was very interesting.
The movie’s climax runs for about half-hour
and it will be enjoyed by audience from all walks
Did you feel
the movie’s message comes across strongly?
Yes. I do feel so. The movie talks about how accidents
happen and how rules are flouted every minute on the
roads. I am not saying that people would change after
watching the movie but it will definitely create awareness
We find traces
of Vaanam in the movie. Do you think so too?
No. The only similarity the movie has with Vaanam
is that both have a multi-star cast. Otherwise both
