Samuthirakani has directed and donned the lead role in the film titled Thondan. Samuthirakani’s Nadodigal Productions and Vasundra Devi Cine Films are jointly producing the film. Sunaina is pairing with Samuthirakani. Vikranth, Namo Narayanan, Thambi Ramaiah, Soori and Ganja Karuppu are donning important roles in the film. Justin Prabhakaran is composing the music.
Richard M Nathan has handled the camera. It has been decided to release on 5th May. The film was screened for the members of the Censor Board. The members after seeing the film felt that the film was fit to be viewed by everyone and hence it certified with a U certificate. These days getting a U certificate seems to be like a miracle. In that way, Thondan has tasted its first success.
It is noteworthy that the films directed by Samuthirakani have always garnered good response. The actor-director keeps in mind the family audiences while making his movies and never fails them. It was so much illustrious through his ‘Appa’, which is now being remade by him in Malayalam with Jayaram playing the lead role.
Although this week has seen a worldwide big release of Baahubali – The Conclusion, Samuthirakani believes that Thondan has a good content and message that audiences will love it, so is being released exactly a week from now.
