Mani Ratnam’s latest film Chekka Chivantha Vaanam ( Nawab in Telugu) has been receiving rave reviews since it’s release last week. Celebrities are going gaga over Mani Ratnam’s terrific narration and termed the film as a comeback for him.

Now, it is Mahesh Babu’s turn to praise Mani Ratnam and his team. Mahesh watched a special screening of the Tamil version and was completely bowled over by Mani Ratnam’s magic on screen. He took to Twitter and said the performances are stellar and called the film as a classic and one for the decade. He wrote AR Rahman’s score is matchless and Santosh Sivan’s work as pure class.

It may be recalled that Mahesh Babu was supposed to team up with Mani Ratnam few years back. But, the project didn’t materialise beyond discussion stages due to unknown reasons.

AR Rahman responds on poor response for his recent albums

1

Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman has been badly criticized for his recent works. None of his music albums ended up impressing his fans and music lovers. His songs and tunes have been reminding us about his old tunes. Rahman recently composed music for Mani Ratnam’s Nawab which is hitting the screens tomorrow. During his recent media interaction, AR Rahman has been asked about his tunes getting poor response in the recent times. He compared his tunes to his personality.

“My tunes resemble my personality. When I don’t change, why will my tunes change? I never wanted to change and so are my tunes. I don’t respond on being criticized and I am bothered about giving the best tunes for my directors and filmmakers. I compose a tune considering the audience. I have been travelling with Mani Ratnam sir from the past 26 years and we have immense love, respect and confidence on each other. I love to travel with him and he accepts my suggestions with open heart. I compose great tunes with his inputs and these are the reasons for our success” revealed AR Rahman.

Mani Ratnam’s films are always ahead of their time: Actress Dayana Erappa

0

Model Dayana Erappa, who has flaunted creations of ace designers like Tarun Tahiliani and Manish Malhotra, is set to make her acting debut with Telugu film “Nawab”. She says its director Mani Ratnam makes films that are ahead of their time.

The National Award-winning filmmaker has many admirers across the globe who love his craft. Dayana is one of them.

“I love all his movies. They are always way ahead of their time. ‘Alaipayuthey’, ‘Mouna Ragam’, ‘Thalapathi’ and ‘Roja’ are some of my all-time favourite films,” Dayana told IANS in an email interview.

So how did she get to be a part of his film?

“It happened overnight through a call and I came to Mumbai for auditions. The second round of audition was in Chennai with Mani Sir. It went well. In a couple of days, they got back confirming the role I auditioned for. I never thought it would be the lead role and when I got a confirmation call, I was overwhelmed,” she recalled.

Did she find Mani Ratnam intimidating?

“Initially I was intimidated, but he made me so comfortable and it was like a breeze to work with him,” said the actress.

She got to learn a lot from him.

“Considering he is one of the ace directors and I am a newcomer, with every move he makes on the set, there is something new to learn. There is something different about his craft, the way he conducts himself on a movie set, the way he treats each and every individual on the set.

“He is a man of vision and mission on set, he exactly knows what he wants from a particular character and has the ability to make sure the artiste portrays the same on camera.”

She plays Chaaya, who is a free spirited and adventurous girl, in the crime thriller.

“Nawab” also features actresses Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari and Aishwarya Rajesh.

“It’s always amazing to share space with such fine actors and I’m privileged to have such a great experience in my debut. More than comfortable, I was overwhelmed,” said Dayana, who hails from Karnataka.

Was there any problem in getting the Tamil dialogues right?

“I grew up watching Tamil movies and I am surrounded by many Tamilians. So, talking in Tamil was not difficult at all. I am very familiar with the language,” she said.

Generally, people say models can’t act. What’s her take?

“Time and again it has been proved wrong. Right from Deepika (Padukone) to Anushka Sharma, everyone has moved from being a model to an actor. They are doing such a great body of work. I think it’s a myth,” she said.

She is open to more acting offers, but won’t quit modelling.

“I will definitely walk and do campaigns for my favourite designers, but will definitely love to lean towards acting and explore more,” said Dayana.

Is there any specific film industry that she wants to be a part of?

“I wouldn’t classify film industry as per regions and I would prefer to be an actor who can get into the skin of a character irrespective of any language or region,” she said.

Seasoned filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has been titled as Nawab in Telugu. The theatrical trailer of the film has been unveiled today by Akkineni Nagarjuna.

The three minute trailer is a package of drama, action episodes and emotions. It briefly introduces the bevy of characters in the film and hints that the story deals with the struggles and issues in a family.

Aravindh Swamy is playing a serious role and Simbhu dons an urban look. Vijay Sethupathi is a subtle police officer who works with an aim.
