Pothuraju Kamal Hassan will be seen in Raja
Rajeshwari Combines Production, Mumbai Express.
The film is directed by Singeetam Srinivas Rao and
has music by Ilayaraja. The audio of the film was
released today at a function held at Ramanaidu Studios,
venue was jammed with press personal and a few fans
that managed to get through the security. Everyone
was anxiously waiting for Kamal Hassan and when he
finally arrived a good one hour late there were no
complains. The audio function was held immediately
and Kala-Tapasvi K Vishwanath released the
first cassette and gave the first cassette to D Ramanaidu.
speaking K Vishwanath recalled his experience
of working with Kamal Hassan, and said, "When
a hero is seen on screen, a fan sees the hero and
not the character he plays. But in Kamal Hassan's
case it is the character that is seen. He is both
easy and hard to work with because he has ease as
a actor and at the same time understands production
aspects so it is hard to work with him." He also
recalled his time during the shooting of Sagarasangamam.
Srinivas Rao said, "Mumbai Express
will be like a pleasant weather during this hot summer
season. From the day that Kamal told me the story
to the final day of postproduction, every member of
the unit was laughing and enjoying the film thoroughly.
The story of the film is the basic foundation for
the film, it is like walking a tight rope a false
step and the story could have been mislead. But thanks
to Kamal Hassan the film came out really well."
He went on to say, "The music provided by Ilayaraja
is just something one cannot talk about but has to
experience. We just told him the situations and he
came up with music that enhanced the scenes. We planned
for a song less film but when we saw the end product
we were happy that we added those songs to the film."
Mohan who arrived late said, "I am sorry
for the delay because of shooting, but when I knew
that it was Kamal Hassan's movie I had to come. I
am personally a very big fan of his. He is one of
the most versatile actors present in the country and
the characters that he has donned are mind blowing.
I wish the whole unit all the success on this venture."
who was the piece the resistance said, "I would
like to thank all these young men that I am sitting
amongst, I call them young as they are young at heart.
I have always admired working with these stalwarts
just as they were happy to work with me. Till date
Vishwanath sir and I keep calling each other and congratulate
each other for the films that we have done together."
about Singeetam he said, "He has always
encouraged me in all ways, as an actor and even as
a writer. During Ammavasya Chandrudu he treated
me like a writer and never looked down. And as far
as the film is concerned it is going to be a family
entertainer, with everyone enjoying himself or herself
throughout the film. The film is not going to be a
main character surrounded but is an ensemble piece,
where every character is important. The music of the
film is excellent."
present at the function were, Vennelakanti, Harish
Cherukuri, Harigopal Krishna the producers and Anne
Shekhar of Surrya Music who have the music rights
of the film.
