Kaatru Veliyidai/Cheliyaa is written, directed and produced by the genius Mani Ratnam. Post his successful stint in both Tamil and Telugu for ‘O Kadal Kanmani’, this movie comes next in the directorial ventures of the legend.
- Mani Ratnam and A R Rahman Combination: This is the 14th movie of the duo together. Ever since they collaborated for ‘Roja’ in 1992, there is no looking back for the director-music composer duo. Both have reaped success together and have been a hit combination. When Mani Ratnam and A R Rahman come together, it is said that the whole nation awaits the movie.
- Karthi and Mani Ratnam: From an AD to being cast as the lead role in his film, Karthi has had a long journey with Mani Ratnam. Very few people know that Karthi was an assistant director for Yuva/Aayutha Ezhutu which had his brother Suriya as one of the leads.
- Cinematography by Ravi Varman: The first impressions of the trailer left us with a bated breath with its grand visuals. With success screaming his name post his stint with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, cinematographer Ravi Varman was awarded the best Cinematography for Goliyon Ki Raas Leela – Ram Leela by Zee Cine awards. Ravi Varman’s Cinematography is well evident in his movies like Badrinath, Tamasha, Barfi and it is time for us to wait and watch the magic unfold! Mani Ratnam has always been extremely careful with his locations and his previous movies stand as a testimony for this, yet again this director – cinematographer combination is for sure going to leave us with Goosebumps.
- Aditi Rao Hydari: When the first look of Kaatru Veliyidai was revealed, everyone thought that this is Aditi Rao Hydari’s first movie down South. Not many know that this is her second film in Tamil after a gap of 10 years. She was last seen in ‘Sringaram’ in 2007 which had Manoj K Jayan as one of the leads. The film received critical acclaim and many accolades.
