Henry who has made memorable films in Malayalam and Tamil has completed his big budget bilingual Vande Matharam in Malayalam and Aruvadai in Tamil. It is directed by T.Aravind.
Mammootty plays an officer in the Intelligence Bureau and Arjun the action king of Kollywood plays a superintendent of police. The story is about an international terrorist organisation that infiltrates into the country. There is a lot of action and promises to be an edge-of-the seat thriller. Says Henry: “The story is about terrorists, farmers’ plight and has a national colour to it”
Henry is trying to rope in Big B to make a guest appearance in the film as the Chief Minister. Sneha plays Mammootty pair and she is a pilt while Sraddha is Arjun’s girl who is an ornithologist. Deepak J.D. plays the villain, while Jagadish assists the big cops. Rajan P. Dev has a plum role. Jai Akash plays the role of an ASP.
Rajesh Yadav is the cinematographer and the film was shot at locations in Kochi, Chennai, Marthandam, Thengapattanam and a few other places. There are five songs tuned by Vidyasagar. While Gireesh Puthencherry and Sharatchandra Varma pen the Malayalam lyrics, the Tamil verses are written by Pa Vijay, Vairamuthu and Yugabarathi.
