There are different categories of filmmakers and each has their own signature style. But there is also a set of filmmakers who are class apart. That list can be filled with names like K Viswanath, K Balachander, Bapu and others. While they are the seniors, the next generation comprises of names like Mani Ratnam, Bharathiraja, Balu Mahendra, Gautham Menon and others.
In that, Mani Ratnam has a special place. His films have contained an intensity and magic which is hard to find. However, success has not been favoring much for this maverick filmmaker so he seems to have resorted to a lucky mascot to resolve the situation. Well, Mani is embarking upon a new project.
This is slated to be a youthful love story and for this, he has chosen Nithya Menen as the leading lady. It is a known fact that Nithya’s presence has contributed to the success of many films. She would be pairing up with Dulquer Salmaan, son of Malayalam megastar Mammootty. We have to see if she will give the much needed break for Mani’s flop career.
