Amid claims that the story of Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film Kaatru Veliyidai will be similar to that of the director’s cult classic Roja, the basic plot of KV is out.
The film was recently screened for British Board of Film Classification. After clearing the movie with 12A certificate, BBFC has also released its plot.
It said: “Kaatru Veliyidai is a Tamil language romantic drama in which a military pilot, being held as a prisoner of war, remembers his romance with a local doctor”.
The film’s theatrical trailer was released by AR Rahman and Mani Ratnam during a live Facebook session on Thursday. The director-composer duo, who have worked in the film industry for about 25 years together, got nostalgic before they showed us a sneak peek of what they have in store for the moviegoers with the Karthi, Aditi Rao Hydari film.
“You are an inspiration,” Rahman told Ratnam.”Your work is the inspiration.”
The very first scene between Aditi Rao Hydari and Karthi is a major throwback to O Kadhal Kanmani, including other small instances as well, except this one seems intense and less chirpy. So, boy and girl meet in a dreamy ballroom and chance upon a future.
