Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is back on the silver screen after a long gap with Kochadaiiyaan – directed by his younger daughter Soundarya R Ashwin.
The film’s trailer was unveiled along with its music recently. And, for the first time we get a glimpse of Deepika Padukone’s character Princess Vadhana in the movie, which is set to release in April.
Going by the trailer, the movie, like any other Rajinikanth film, promises to be high on action a la Rajini style. Mind it! (See Pics: Music release of Kochadaiiyaan)
We will be able to witness some classic and grand battle scenes shot in 3D. Rajinikanth is cast as the archetypal superhero in the epic dramatisation of good versus evil. He has a double role with Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone being paired opposite the younger character.
The Tamil superstar’s most talked about film, set to be released in six languages, is being touted as the country’s first to be made using motion capture technology.
Referred to as India’s answer to James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’, the director has explored the use of full performance capture in the film in its full magnitude. Apparently, this technology has been used so far in big-budget Hollywood films such as ‘Avatar’ (2009), ‘The Adventures of Tintin’ (2011) and ‘Beowulf’ (2007).
The film’s uniqueness also stems from the fact this project combines many modern-era technologies to aid in visual storytelling and bring to life mythological India.
They are joined by current and yesteryear stars of North and South Indian Cinema such as Jackie Shroff and R Sarathkumar for a global, pan-Indian cinematic treat. ‘Kochadaiyaan’ is set to release on April 11.
