Jeeva's much touted Tamil M.A has gone for a title change to avail itself of entertainment tax benefit. Now the film will be known as Katrathu Tamil (I learned Tamil), and its release date too has been changed from Sep 28 to October 5.
Katrathu Tamil is a realistic story of a Tamil M.A graduate who goes from pillar to post looking for a job. Director Ram an associate of Balu Mahendra has tried to show the difficulties faced by a Tamil M.A graduate in getting a job even in a government college!
Jeeva had reduced weight for the film in which he appears in three different get-up. The film has Jeeva and has new girl Anjali in the lead. It has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, and the film is about the life and times of Prabhakar, a man who has devoted his life for the upliftment of the Tamil language.
Comedy actor Karunas was so impressed with Katrathu Tamil, that he has purchased the entire Tamilnadu rights of the film! Says Karunas: "The film is amazing, and will be a trendsetter. We are releasing it big; in Chennai alone 7 screens will show the movie."
