Mani Ratnam’s ‘OK Kanmani’ trailer out!
On the 15th anniversary of his romantic-drama Alaipayuthey, ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam paid tribute to the Madhavan-Shalini starrer, by revealing the trailer of his upcoming movie, titled as ‘Ok Kanmani’.
The trailer of ‘OK Kanmani’ is out and we can say that the teaser of the upcoming Mani Ratman’s venture is absolutely amazing. The lead actors of the movie Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen have already showed us their acting skills in Anwar Rasheed’s ‘Ustad Hotel’.
The trailer, which was released on Sunday, shows Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen romancing in Chennai’s suburban train, beach, riding over the flyovers and in the rain which has striking similarities to scenes from Alaipayuthey which was released in 2000.
The pacey and energetic music by A.R. Rahman setting the tone for the one-minute video introduces the lead pair as Aadi and Tara. Looking at the build up, it seems like movie buffs in the country is going to be served with feast of a flick. The first glimpse which was released on Friday also created lots of buzz in the video sharing site.
While Dulquer impresses audience with his courting acts, Nithya makes her space as a cute and smart girl. Mani Ratnam is planning to release Ok Kanmani on 14th April, which marks 15 years since the release of Alaipayuthey.
The film also marks the reunion of Ratnam with lensman P.C. Sreeram after a decade. It’s said to be Mani’s quickest projects and is said to have been completed in about two months. With just few hours of its release, the video is creating buzz in the social media.
We can say that ‘OK Kanmani’ and ‘Ustad Hotel’, cannot be included in the same category. Mani Ratnam is a brand most Indian filmmakers look up to. Countless romantic dramas have released in the 21st century yet ‘Alaipayuthey’ stands tall even today. He’s getting back to his nest to fetch the best he can. This is what Mani Ratnam means to us. He makes us want to appreciate the presence of another soul, usually, the lover. Mani’s ‘Kadal’ is finally forgiven.
