Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s comeback film Kochadaiyaan has finally got a release date. And reports also suggest that the movie will be released in Tamil,Telugu,English and Hindi.
The makers are planning a worldwide release in July 2013 in all the languages.
“July seems a feasible time. We should be done with all the post-production work by April. Actually we’ve left all the post-production decisions to Studio D. They decided to edit the film down to a playing-time of 2 Hours 5 minutes,” said film’s producer Dr. Manohar.
For the first time in Indian cinema,the Motion-Capture technique in 3D was used. The technique has not only enhanced Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s slackened-down celluloid energy-level (post his illness),it would also bring to his fans their idol in a new avatar.
Explaining the time-taking process of getting the new technique into the film,Dr. Manohar added: “We got Stereo D,the people who did the 3D of The Avengers to do the Motion-Capture technique in 3D for Kochadaiyaan. They came down to India to work on our film. And the results are staggering.”
Recently Rajinikanth saw the final copy of his film directed by younger daughter Soundarya R Ashwin and K. Ravi Kumar,who is on board as a writer and creative consultant.
Dr Manohar said,the Thalaivar,as Rajinikanth is know to many of his fans,was stunned by what he saw.
The film will now be dubbed into more languages including Japanese,French and Italian. And film’s lead actress Deepika Padukone will also be doing a sizzling dance number with Rajinikanth,composed especially by music maestro AR Rahman.
“You must understand that Rajinikanth is no ordinary hero. His films have a shelf life beyond anyone else in Indian cinema. On top of that this is Rajiniji’s first release since his illness. We have to make sure that the film is absolutely what his audiences are waiting for. Rajiniji saw Kochadaiyaan on Friday. He isn’t prone to praising his own films. But this time he is awed by the technique and special effects,” said Dr Manohar.
Dr. Manohar added that the film’s budget has crossed Rs.100 crores.
