LOOSU PONNU the latest video from Madras Meter has been the talk of the town ever since it was launched a few days back – MEET THE CRAZIEST CHARACTERS SPARK UP THE HUMOUR IN MADRAS METER’S LATEST VIDEO 
 
‘Fairy Tales’ always come with those girls, who charm up the viewers, but in no way are coherent to the reality. Despite this fact, they are fondly admired as avatars in movies, which becomes the core of Madras Meter’s latest YouTube video ‘Loosu Ponnu’.  With just three characters involving a filmmaker Kalai Kannan (Sampath), Neela  (Indhuja) and Deepak (Vaidhya), the 7-minute video leaves us in splits for their uproarious act.  From Kalai Kannan’s funny ignorance of mistaking filmmaker Ingmar Bergman for actress Ingrid Bergman and Indhuja’s exaggerated performance as ‘Loosu Ponnu’, they keep the show going with ultimate engrossment. 
 
Raja Ramamurthy has created and written this unique concept of humorous video with Guru Raj directing and editing it. 
 
“‘Loosu Ponnu’ is the Indian equivalent of manic pixie dream girl. As the name suggests, ‘Loosu Ponnu’ has the mental IQ of a 2-year-old and needs constant rescuing by the hero. It’s about time that Tamil cinema’s writers and directors started writing more realistic and true to life female characters. Thanks to Sampath and Indhuja for being such sports and bringing the characters to life. Guru and the entire team behind Madras Meter have done a wonderful job says Raja Ramamurthy”.  
 
Madras Meter has been positioned itself as one of the majorly subscribed YouTube channels providing Clean & unlimited relatable entertainment. 
 
Mr.Chidamabaram, CEO of TrendLoud says “Madras Meter has been completely revamped and my sincere thanks to the loyal audience who have been the backbone of Madras Meter’s Success.  We are calling this Journey as our  Madras Meter 2.0 Journey as an audience you can expect more such Loose Ponnu kind of videos where the audience might be surprised to see the mainstream actors performing on YouTube videos. So all that we can say is Madras Meter is back”.  
 
From the cookery videos involving delicious dishes, fictional humorous shows based on contemporary issues and Stand-up comedy, they are incessantly proving to be the hub of amusement.

The audio and trailer launch of Abhilash-Leema starrer Dhoni Kabadi Kuzhu directed by Ayyappan happened today in Chennai. Here are the some of the excerpts from the event.  
 
   Actor Aari said, “First and foremost, there happens to be a special mention marked upon director Ayyappan, who despites his hard work limited himself with few words. Abhilash will not alone stand out to be a finest actor but a filmmaker as well for he knows the nuance of each and every department.  I have seen Leema as a child artiste from the time of Rettai Suzhi and am happy to see that she has now debuted as heroine..”
 
The actor continued to speak out on he issues of Gaja Cyclone and expressed his views on solution regarding the issue. 
 
Actor Abhilash said, “Despites being a child artiste, I had to go in search of many production houses and directors. I didn’t have any support as I don’t belong to a family of film background. Now that I am being introduced as a hero through this film, I would like to tell that many newcomers have got opportunity to work in this film. There have been lots of emotional moments during the shoot of this film. Director Ayyappan had to be there for the delivery of his wife which was caesarean. But he remained on the shooting spot and completed it without cancelling the shooting. There was another incident, where one of the actor’s father passed away. But he stayed back and completed the entire shoot saying that all throughout life, his father wanted to see his son as an actor. The film will definitely give an experience of watching a decent entertainer with good message.”
 
Director Ayyappan said, “Everyone who heard the script gave me lots of confidence and encouragement. The film is about a group of friends in a village who simultaneously play both cricket and Kabadi. At a particular point of time, they have to decide to play one among them. Actors Abhilash and Leema have exerted best efforts into the film. Especially for Leema who was initially reluctant to take up this offer. But soon after hearing the script, she got so much impressed and didn’t want to miss it.”
 
Samuel said, “At this point of time where sports are getting diminished with its prominence, I am happy to see that movies like Dhoni Kabadi Kuzhu are being made. I am sure this film will be a good inspiration for everyone.”
 
Director Mauruthu Pandian of Asuravadham fame said, “The film reminisces of my childhood memories of my school days. I am sure Dhoni Kabadi Kuzhu will definitely be a refreshing experience of memory down the lane journey for everyone.”
 
Music Director C.M. Mahendran who has given background score for this film said, “I am really privileged to be a part of this film and thank director Ayyappan and actor Abhilash for giving me an opportunity to work in this film. Both of them approached me to compose BGM even before the dubbing was over. I am hopefully looking forward to the reception for this film.”
 
Filmmaker Sriram of DOO movie fame said, “What I liked about the film’s trailer that we all saw now is that it didn’t have a single smoking or drinking scene. Also there are few dialogues in the film that are completely appreciable. I am confident that Dhoni Kabadi Kuzhu will have its blissful results.”
 
Actor CN Prabhakaran said, “Usually there’s saying that directors are Captains of the ship, but director Ayyappan is a one man army, who has done a great job offering a good content. During these days, where most of the films are majorly churned out for commercial values, filmmaker Ayyappan stands out to be an exceptional one in presenting a good content.”
 
Music director Roshan Jacob said, “First of all I would like to thank producer S Nandagopal for giving me a chance to be a part of this film. DKK will have a good message that will be definitely find its warm reception across all sectors of audiences.”
 
Actress Leema said, “Just as the film’s title, even the film will definitely have offer a different and unique experience to all. I happened to gain a good knowledge about Kabadi while shooting for this film.”
 
National award winning actor Appukutty said, “Kabadi happens to be the game that has been making our country prouder than cricket. I know how difficult it is to make a film based on this game. Personally, I have experienced it while working in Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu. Actor Abhilash has been aspiring to give his best in film industry from his young age. Now I am elated to see that his dreams are coming true now. All that I can say is that Cricket is a luxurious game and Kabadi happens to be a poor man ‘S game for it doesn’t need any materials to play. There are lots of challenges involved in the game of Kabadi and I am requesting Government to encourage it .”

DIRECTOR SUSIENTHIRAN’S KENNEDY CLUB SPEAKS CHINESE NOW
The concept of ‘Content is King’ gets proven with a much surpassing magnitude and it’s a groundbreaking moment for the entire Tamil film industry indeed. Susienthiran’s upcoming directorial “Kennedy Club” is being dubbed in Chinese language, where the rights have been acquired for a whopping price of 2Cr. The film is based on the real life incidents revolving around women Kabaddi team featuring veteran filmmaker Bharathiraja and Sasikumar in lead roles. While the reception of Indian movies, especially for films like Dangal and Baahubali franchise has been pretty much greater in Chinese market, it’s a huge scenario to see that a Tamil movie has captured their interests. The theme involving sports, team spirit, breaking the hurdles and accomplishing the challenges have always been the heart and soul of International movies. In this aspect, the buyers in Chinese market were spellbound over the premise of “Kennedy Club”.

Just as the combination of Bharathiraja-Sasikumar-Susienthiran combination has its trenchant mark in Tamil film industry, it’s great to see that the trio’s unparalleled work has found its realms in International markets too.

Kennedy Club has an ensemble star-cast involving Samuthirakani,  Soori, Munishkanth, newcomer Meenakshi, Gayathri, Neethu, Sowmya, Smrithi, Soundarya and many others. The technical team comprises of D Imman (Music), R.B. Gurudev (Cinematography) and Sekar B (Art).

The film is produced by Thai Saravanan for Nallusamy Pictures, which is scheduled for worldwide release on Tamil New Year Day 2019

SJ SURYAH’S MONSTER DIRETED BY NELSON VENKATESAN OF ORU NAAL KOOTHU FAME
 
The salient trait of Potential Studios is its unique ability to cherry-pick phenomenal tales and talents. This has been evident through films like Maaya and Maanagaram, that erased the linguistic barriers to reach a much wider audience. Their third production venture titled MONSTER, starring SJ Suryah and Priya Bhavani Shankar in lead roles, is going to be another example of this.
 
“Monster will be a complete family entertainer,” starts off filmmaker Nelson Venkatesan, whose maiden directorial venture- Oru Naal Koothu- had received critical acclaim. So how different is this film from his previous one? “The audience will definitely feel a difference in the premise and treatment of this film, compared to ONK. This is a complete ‘Kids-Centric film’, which will engross the audience across all age groups,” claims the director. 
 
Talking about the inspiration behind MONSTER, Nelson says, “Initially, I had narrated other scripts to Potential Studios. However, an incident that happened in my house, inspired me me to craft a script based on it. That is what Monster is. I can’t reveal anything more about the context, as it will be a spoiler.” 
 
While shedding light on the film’s star-cast, Nelson says, “SJ Suryah doesn’t need an analysis on his performance. He is a wizard with his own style, and his effortless performances have won all our hearts. He will be a perfect entertainer in Monster too, from the very first scene to the last. Priya Bhavani Shankar understood the depth of her character and was able to put more life into it. She has strived for the best in this movie. Karunakaran had appeared in a serious character in my previous film Oru Naal Koothu, but in Monster he will be tickling your funny bones.”
 
Sharing his experience working with Potential Studios, filmmaker Nelson says, “It’s a huge privilege for me as a director to work for such a production house, which lives up to its commitment of delivering good quality films. That has been its greatest USP and knowing this gave me an added sense of responsibility to deliver a noteworthy product.” 
 
Monster has a technical crew comprising of Justin Prabhakaran (Music), Gokul Benoy (Cinematography), VJ Sabu Joseph (Editing), Sankar Dass (Co-writer) and Shankar Shiva (Art).  The post-production work is in full swing now and the official announcement regarding the audio and worldwide theatrical release will be made shortly.

Sathyaraj as a social Messiah in   “Theerpukal  Virkapadum”.
 
“Theerpukal  Virkapadum” shall showcase Sathyraj as never seen before, he is here to break the norms, break conventions and to fight for the Daughters of India.
 
Producer Sajeev Meerashahib says “We are indeed delighted to do a film with Sathyaraj Sir as the lead.  He has got an amazing power of positivity that spreads to all. This script demanded his presence. When director Dheran narrated the script to me we mutually accepted that only Sathyaraj Sir can play this role. Such is the message and such is the aura of the name Sathyaraj Sir. As a Producer I opted to choose to produce this film in Tamil since I strongly believed that the reach would be much bigger.More over Tamil Nadu has been the breeding ground for social justice and will be forever. We are commencing the shoot by “mid December” said Producer Sajeev Meerashahib of HoneyBee Creations.
 
Director Dheran who had also written the story says “I thank my producer Sajeev Meerashahib Sir, for trusting me and entrusting this major assignment. This script demanded a courageous producer apart from a commanding hero. Sajeev Meerashahib Sir, as the producer and Sathyaraj Sir as the hero had given life to the film. The protagonist of this film is a warrior of social justice. Sathyaraj Sir with his sheer weightage of being a man of uncompromising attitude was the sole choice. I was amazed by his simplicity, his efforts to connect himself with today’s generation is commendable. When we were asked to source a popular name to announce the title of our film, we instantly decided upon Thirumurugan Gandhi because of his presence in social activities. Aanji of “Garuda Vega” (Telugu), fame is the Director of Photography, Prasad S N (Yaamirukka Bayamey and Kaateri)  is the Music Director. Sarath, associate of Editor Ruben is debuting as Editor, Suresh Kalleri (Kutti Puli, Jail) is the Art Director, Nihitha vincent is the executive producer. The other cast and crew  will be announced soon.  
 
Dheran also added “Theerpukal Virkapadum” is based on true events, our commitment to provide quality entertainment with a social message shall be explicit in this exciting action thriller. We are confident that the film will keep the audience  on the edge of the seats frame to frame”.
