Rajinikanth's next to be released in 4 languages
It's final. The most awaited Indian film of 2013 will be released in July. The next Rajinikanth release Kochadaiyaan in Tamil, Telugu, English and Hindi is a do-or-die epic for its producer, the enterprising Dr. Murali Manohar.
For the first time in Indian cinema, the Motion-Capture technique in 3D was used. The technique has not only enhanced Rajinikanth slackened-down celluloid energy-level (post his illness), it would also bring to his fans their idol in a new avatar.
Explaining the time-taking process of getting the new technique into the film, Dr. Manohar says, "We got Stereo D, the people who did the 3D of The Avengers to do the Motion-Capture technique in 3D for Kochadaiyaan. They came down to India to work on our film. And the results are staggering."
How staggering, was proven when Rajinikanth, not susceptible to self-praise saw the complete film on Friday afternoon in Chennai in the presence of his daughter Soundarya who has directed Kochadaiyaan and K. Ravi Kumar who is on board as a writer and creative consultant.
Rajinikanth, says the producer, was stunned by what he saw.
We learn that now, post the first screening for the hero, the film's crew has decided to give the film an even more enhanced look and release.
We learn that the film would now be dubbed into more languages including Japanese, French and Italian. We also got to know that Deepika Padukone would now participate in a sizzling dance number with Rajinikanth which A R Rahman has been summoned to compose.
Says Dr. Murli Manohar, "You must understand that Rajinikanth is no ordinary hero. His films have a shelf life beyond anyone else in Indian cinema. On top of that this is Rajiniji's first release since his illness. We have to make sure that the film is absolutely what his audiences are waiting for. Rajiniji saw Kochadaiyaan on Friday. He isn't prone to praising his own films. But this time he is awed by the technique and special effects."
Dr. Manohar reveals the budget has crossed Rs.100 crores. "But it's all worth the effort and money. We've just closed the deal for Japan at a price unheard for an Indian film."
It could also be revealed now that the makers of Kochadaiyaan are planning a worldwide release in July 2013 in all the languages.
Admits Dr. Manohar, "July seems a feasible time. We should be done with all the post-production work by April. Actually we've left all the post-production decisions to Studio D. They decided to edit the film down to a playing-time of 2 Hours 5 minutes."
