On Arjun’s insistence, even the climax, which
is a high action stunt sequence, had him play it all
by himself. This was a challenging task for Arjun as
well the cinematographer Anjaneyulu. The climax fight
sequences were shot on burning hay which has Arjun jumping
into action risking his life.
It was shot in a boathouse at Kochi in Kerala, where
Arjun on a fishing trip, saves passengers stranded in
the middle of the sea due to the misbehavior of a group
of people involved in illegal activities. He took up
the challenge of fighting the villains as well as rescuing
the people without using the body double.

“While India and its people are known for preaching
peace, we convey a message to ‘get angry’
however with a justification tagged to it,”
says the movie’s director A Venkatesh. The film
is produced by Raja for ESK Films International. Arjun
plays a cool man who never gets angry but his patience
is put to test at one point of time, giving birth
to the action packed screenplay with the interesting
and daring action sequences.
Arjun has already worked with Venkatesh in a couple
of movies earlier like ‘Vathiyar’ and
‘Durai’. They share a good rapport and
comfort levels while working together again has been
bliss for both of them. The heroine Haripriya, though
enacting a trivial role, has played her part very
well. The director confesses that it is not a heroine
oriented subject and so she doesn’t have much
to enact, still he is very happy with Haripriya’s
performance who has given her best to the role.
Some important sequences have been shot in Hongkong
with a special equipment used to capture a risky stunt
scene. “It is an ordinary film with no gimmicks
or extravagant storyline but certainly a complete
entertainer”, assures Venkatesh.
Dhina has scored the music. He has worked a lot to
improvise on his earlier creations. The songs have
come out well with one of them ‘Dheera Dheera
Magadheera’ creating ripples in the top 10 song
charts. The background score is sure to create great
impact going by the quality of the songs.
Vallakkottai, another addition to the other Diwali
silver screen contestants, will be a sure bonanza
to Arjun’s fans.
