When it’s said ‘A Cop Movie’, it comes well stapled with blatant assumptions and easy predictions on what the premise could be all about. In a naturalistic manner, this genre has always been confined to usual paradigms of what we have seen till now. But director Ganeshaa promises for a different outing with ‘Thimiru Pudichavan’. The film’s pooja was held yesterday in Chennai, which was graced by entire team along with a transgender, a woman police officer, and many others.
“Yes, it’s true that I had to intentionally attempt crafting a police story that doesn’t give reminiscence of erstwhile cop movie references. The film will traverse into the lives of policemen in police station and how they treat each other like their own family members,” says Ganeshaa, who adds that the script of Thimiru Pudichavan was completed before 5 years. “When I wrote the script, I was pretty much clear that an actor without larger than life image would befittingly look appropriate for the protagonist’s role. When I narrated the script to Vijay Antony sir, he wanted to do this film after becoming an accomplished actor and has kept his promise as said before,” tots up the filmmaker.
On signing Nivetha Pethuraj for the film, Ganeshaa says, “We wanted someone, who would pull off a cop role with excellence. After seeing the recent photo shoots of Nivetha, we invited her for an audition with cop uniform and she accomplished it in a groovy style with nuance performance. She will be seen riding heavy bikes in the film and is undergoing training for that. Vijay Antony will be seen as a police officer and Nivetha Pethuraj, a sub-inspector.”
Composing of Thimiru Pudichavan started yesterday and the shoot will start from March 1st bankrolled by Fatima Vijay Antony of Vijay Antony Film Corporation.
