Silambarasan-Sneha-Sana-Saravanan: The Christmas offering
Silambattam  

Starring: Silambarasan, Sneha, Sana Khan, Prabhu, Santhanam

Direction: Saravanan

Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Production: Lakshmi Movie Makers Limited

We expected it to be around for Deepavali, but the Christmas-New Year time is also a good time for Silambarasan to reclaim lost ground at the box office. The talented actor has not been having the best of times in 2008, but all that could change in the coming week as Silambattam hits theaters, carrying a fair bit of expectations.
The makers have made one thing clear, this thing is a full fledged commercial, so you know what to expect. But, they have not said that this is a no brainer. It will be a full length entertainer where we get to see two Silambarasan’s in different halves of the movie in completely different appearances, one a cool dude and the other a typical traditional priest from Kumbakonam.

Silambattam is the debut directorial venture of popular cameraman Saravanan. He has admitted that the story is not entirely new to Kollywood, but the script has its share of freshness and that will be the advantage of the movie, besides its cast which, one has to admit is quite good for a directorial debut. Apart from Silambarasan, there is Sana Khan paired with the priest and Sneha paired with the more stylish Silambarasan. Sneha will be on screen for the first time after Pandi where she had a bit uncharacteristically scorched screens, it will be interesting to watch if she continues in the same vein here too. Kishore is the bad man while Santhanam and Karunas have teamed up in the laughs department. The touch of experience comes in the form of Prabhu (who has now settled very neatly into the character mode) and the veteran Nedumudi Venu who will appear as
 
Silambarasan’s grandfather. The director has made a special mention of Sana Khan’s rural girl role which he says has come out in a life like manner.

Well, we are coming to the highlight part that we are already familiar with, the music. The Yuvan-Silambarasan team gets it right most of the time and they seem to have done it this time too, having managed to get Ilaiyaraja to lend his voice for one song. The ‘Thamizhnattile’ song is already quite a rage among the youth which augurs well for the movie and with the nimble footsteps of Silambarsan (remember the ‘Dandanaka’ song from Kaalai), they must make the movie stronger..

Camera has been handled by Veyil fame Mathi and so we can expect quality in that department. Despite all these details being revealed about the movie: the Silambarasan two pronged act and the two lead ladies, we are no closer to knowing the plot or the genre of the movie, which is a well guarded secret. All that is being said is that it will be an entertainer from start to finish. We will find out soon at the theaters anyway.
