Actor Abhay Krishnaa says the climax of forthcoming Tamil comedy “Adida Melam”, which releases in cinemas on Friday, will be unabashedly funny and entertaining.
“I can proudly say we’ve reserved the best for end of the film. While most of the film is enjoyable, the last 15-20 minutes is outright funny. Even some of the predictable moments are presented in the most unconventional way,” Abhay told IANS.
Directed by Anbu Stalin, the film also stars Abhinaya, Nischala Krishnan, Urvashi and Mayilsamy.
“It’s an entertainer, but not a lame comedy film. It’s about how a dumb family handles the most serious situations. I’m part of a family that plans weddings, and the story revolves around events that involve the members of this family,” he said.
Although the project was originally started in 2013, it was stopped after being shot for a few days. After initial hiccups, the film was wrapped up last October, and since then the makers have been eyeing for a suitable release date.
Though Abhay worked as an assistant cinematographer and assistant director, it was after starring in a short film that he had the courage to don the greasepaint for a feature film.
“I wanted to know if people would accept me as an actor. So when I did the short film, I realised it was well received and it didn’t matter who starred in it, which boosted my confidence and I finally decided to act,” he said.
Abhay heaps praise on his co-stars, especially about senior actress Urvashi, who plays his mother in the film.
“She’s a big pillar of support to the project. The relationship I share with her in the film is really special, it’s funny and emotional,” he said.
Abhay has two more Tamil projects in his kitty.
