Sathyam Cinemas, big screen played perfect host on Wednesday evening to the audio launch of Udayanidhi Stalin’s K.S Ravikumar directed Aadhavan, featuring Suriya and Nayanthara.
The ‘vizha nayagan’ was Harris Jayaraj, the music director of the film, combining with Suriya for the fifth time, to churn out more hits.
Noted director Shankar released the audio and Tamil Film Producers President Rama Narayanan received it. Later a slick trailer of the movie was launched by producer R B Choudhry and received by Ilayathalapathy Vijay.
Two songs from the film were also shown to the invitees. The one shot in the virgin locales of Iceland Edho Panithuli… featuring Suriya and Nayanthara was the highlight. The other song with lead stars- Vadivel, Saroja Devi, Ramesh Kanna, and others dressed as tribal’s singing Maasi, Maasi… to the drum beats of Harris and shot in the mountains of Kodaikanal was a mass number.
However what had audiences on their feet was the 45 second teaser trailer song Hasilie Fisiliye… Anjana . sung by Karthik and Harini with rap by Dr. Burn and Maya. Most of the people were humming this fusion number, which is sure going to be the “stopper number” in the album.
Singer Chinmayee was the emcee and she made quite a few glitches, though KS Ravikumar came to her rescue and corrected them. Among others who attended the launch and spoke were Vivek, Sasikumar, Gautham Menon, Dharani, Abhirami Ramanathan, Hari, Vivek’s witty speech was the pick of the day.
The notable absentee at the function was heroine Nayanthara who was shooting for a Malayalam film in Kerala. Mohanlal the chief guest whose name was printed in the invitation card could not make it for the function, as his flight from US was delayed.
Suriya asked the crowd to observe a two minute silence to pay respect to late actor Murali who plays a very important role in Aadhavan.
