The unit of Cosmos Entertainment’s Ladam met the press recently to launch a website and talk about the film. Director Prabu Solomon, actors Charmi and debutant hero Aravindan along with debut cameraman Sukumar met the press at Green Park Hotel on Friday afternoon.
Charmi was all smiles and lauded the efforts of the director in believing in his project and seeing it through some very tough times. At one time the movie was almost shelved but Prabu was convinced about the viability of the project and made it possible.
Charmi plays the role of Angel, a very positive character with a strong comical streak. “I hope this film will give me the right break in Tamil. My role has immense scope to perform and I had the opportunity of imitating many actors which I have not done even in Telugu industry so far.”, says the actress sporting her famous smile.
There is also a lip lock in the film which was shot in one take but “from seven angles” clarified Charmi. The director Prabu praised Charmi saying “she was as co-operative as any technician through this film and did not behave like a star. She will be seen in a new light after this film.” He thanked producers JP Kumar and DY Chowdary and had also a word of praise for debutant cameraman Sukumar who has “done an excellent job in the film”.
According to Prabu Solomon the movie is an unusual one indeed. It has no conventional love story angle but is about a girl and a boy who are good friends and how they help each other in certain tough situations in their life. The team is sure that Ladam is going to be a path breaking film in Tamil.
Aravindan is the new hero whose tagline in the film’s promos reads, “they called him cockroach”. Though Charmi kept jocularly referring to him as Karupamboochi through out, he seemed to take no offence and explained that his role was about an innocent guy who is trapped into certain situations. Dharan has done the music, and one of the songs is written by journalist Eknath.
