Popular cinematographer-turned-director Rajiv Menon is all set to direct a feature film, 17 years after his last release Kandukondain Kandukondain. Titled Sarvam Thaala Mayam, the film stars music composer-turned-actor, G.V Prakash in the lead role. Known for starring in comedies and coming-of-age dramas, this movie will show G. V Prakash in a never-seen-before avatar.
The young actor will be seen playing the role of a musician in the film. The makers of the film released the first-look poster and this got fans excited. Set against the background of two temples, G.V Prakash is seen taking a mid-air leap, holding a mridangam in his hand. The actor tweeted the picture with the caption ”#sarvamthaalamayam shoot starts today … need ur blessings and wishes … the Mozart of India my guru @arrahman scores Music …. a @DirRajivMenon film … will be a beautiful musical film … need ur love and wishes #சர்வம்தாளமயம்”
It has to be noted that this will be the first time G. V Prakash stars in a film featuring music composed by his uncle A. R Rahman. The film will also star ‘Maheshinte Prathikaaram’ fame Aparna Balamurali, VJ-turned-actress Divya Dharshini, Nedumudi Venu and Vineeth. A source said that ”Since it’s a music-based film, Rahman was required to compose all the songs even before the shooting commenced. He has also completed a few portions of the background score. The project is slated to go on the floors later this year. Most of the songs will be situational and will be part of the narrative. Hence, the film features nine songs. Prakash, who is a composer himself, is gearing up to play a drummer.”
Going by the first-look poster and the star cast it sure looks like a film to watch out for. What do you think?
