Director Gautham Menon in a recent interview to Ananda Vikatan finally opened up and revealed some intresting snippets on Thala55. Here are some the highlights from the interview
Hero begins his life in a wedlock when he is 28 years old and the film narration traces the journey of his life for the next ten years till he is 38. This is how GVM summed the story of the film.
“ஒரு வெள்ளிக் கொலுசு போல இந்தப் பூமி சிணுங்கும் கீழ அணியாத வைரம் போல அந்த வானம் மினுங்கும் மேல – Ajith sir absolutely loved this lyrics by Thamarai and said this single song completely sums up his entire character in the film.
GVM revealed that the getup changes were done by Thala himself after listening to the script.
Ajith sir learnt boxing and Guitar for the film out of his own interest has he felt it would help the role.
GVM said Ajith sir fans will love this film a lot. Here is a sample dialogue from the film “Ovvoru ammavum than pillai epdi irunthalum azhagunu thaan solvaanga. Sila samayam poinu therinjum kooda solvaanga. Aana, en amma apdi sonnathu unmai”.
GVM said he has still not narrated the climax to Ajith sir. He even asked me “Jii.. Innum neenga climax sollala. Avalo ragasiyama vechirukeengala ‘ஜி… இன்னும் நீங்க கிளைமாக்ஸ் சொல்லலை. அவ்வளவு ரகசியமா வெச்சிருக்கீங்களா?’னு இப்பக்கூட அஜித் சார் கேட்டார். சீக்கிரம் அவர்கிட்ட கிளைமாக்ஸ் சொல்லணும்!””.
“You are beautifully maintaining your physique. I feel like hitting the gym whenever I see you. You are my inspiration”told Ajith to Arun Vijay.
I was a bit worried on giving both Trisha and Anushka equal roles and told Ajith sir about this He said “Athalam neenga just like that panniduveenga”.
