Chennai, Jan 10 (TruthDive): ‘Alex Pandian’ will be Karthi Sivakumar’s grand treat for his fans for this Pongal festival. The film is scheduled to release on January 11, 2013.
The name of the film ‘Alex Pandian’, is the name of a popular character played by Superstar Rajinikanth in one of his super hit movies ‘Moondru Mugam’. So, by the name, the movie has evoked special interest among the masses.
Director Suraj, who is a commercial expert, has directed the movie. Anushka Shetty is playing the female lead role against Karthi, while Santhanam plays a pivotal supporting character.
The music is scored by Devi Sri Prasad. The music album of Alex Pandian has five songs, which was released on December 12, 2012 on Rajinikanth’s birthday.
Alex Pandian is the biggest-ever release for a Karthi-starrer, as the film is releasing in close to 500 screens in Tamil Nadu alone. As Kamal Hassan’s Vishwaroopam is backing out, Karthi’s Alex Pandian is heading for a massive release.
Pongal has proven to be a lucky occasion both Karthi and Suraj, as Karthi’s last year Pongal release “Siruthai” did a decent collection at the box office and Suraj’s Padikathavan for 2009 Pongal was also a box office success movie. So, Suraj says he’s confident that their combo will repeat the magic for this Pongal as well.
The director said Karthi is playing an easy-going guy, who cares for nothing in the world and would do anything for money. Karthi has put in a lot of efforts to portray his character. Nothing more about the story is revealed.
The movie has both highly-charged action sequences and fine comedy tracks in the movie. The main highlight in the film are the action elements and high-octane chase sequences.
Moreover, Alex Pandian is a pure action comedy and has all the elements that can pull in the audience. The Telugu version of the movie, “Bad Boy” is scheduled to release on January 25, 2013.
