Kootathil Oruthan, the upcoming rom com flick about the love adventures of the average student of an average engineering college who has a hard time just getting noticed, is set to hit the screens soon, and this T.J.Gnanavel film is already generating a lot of buzz. Gnanvel is a popular writer and journalist in the Tamil language, and he has cast Ashok Selvan and Priya Anand for the first time in a romantic comedy flick. Selvan plays the role of Arvind, who is the jack of all trades and has stood out for nothing in his life. Cast in the insipid checked shirt, with big glasses, oily hair and a neatly combed moustache, Arvind is a forgettable character who lives to tell an unforgettable tale. And apparently, Selvan is having fun playing this character.
Having starred in two movies before, he is not an unknown face in the industry, but the security guard refusing him entry onto the sets of his own movie is good training to play the role. The film has grabbed attention not only for its unconventional and dreamy story line but also its songs, which were written by Nivas K.Prasanna. One of the songs ‘Enda Ippidi’ has grabbed a legion of fans already, and some of them are bound to turn up when the movie is released. The music director, as well as the star of the film, pointed out in a recent interaction that the movie is quite relatable for every person as they are bound to feel that way at some point in their lives. The songs, Nivas added, were an emotional experience for him too.
The movie was set to be released by14th July 2017 but there was an issue with the producers, so it is set for a 28th July release. The movie will be released by Dream Warrior Pictures.
