When the term ‘Breaking News’ flashes, it’s obvious that everyone and everything goes to standstill mode to look what’s the story. It’s a common case irrespective of region or language for this has so much force of attraction in it. Accordingly, the case of Jai’s upcoming film has become very much significant to this context, where anything involving the project has stolen the limelight.
“Breaking News” featuring Jai, Bhanu Sree, Dev Gill and Rahul Dev in lead roles is having its shoot steer at high pace. While the film being affirmed as ‘Superhero fantasy’ flick remains as the major flash point, it’s literally turning us inquisitive to know what the film’s story is all about. Ask Andrew Pandian, director of this film and he says, “The film is about Jeevan, a commoner like any other person from a middle class family, who works for a software company. While things could go smooth as picture perfect life with profession and family, his altruistic activist nature of being evoked against the injustice crusades him into troubled waters. His wife Hari Priya (Bhanu Sree) who loves him unconditionally gives her best into transforming him, but exasperated by his unchanging nature departs from him. Adding more to his desolations is when his colleagues and friends do forsake him for his alien nature. Shattered by loneliness, he becomes a vagabond roaming aimlessly unaware that “God” has some other plans for him. It all gets unleashed when a piece of meteor from the space while hitting the earth pierces into his body. With unexplainable chemical reactions with his cells, his tissues being mutated and neutrons in brain reacting, he transforms into an invincible superhero. Now enters the most dangerous villains Puri and Uraj, who are all set to devastate the South India by establishing a project that will drastically convert the fertile lands into sterile zones ruining everyone’s lives. They’re unstoppable even the greatest powers like Government for this duo is so much overpowering that they can toss off them. Now it’s all about a commoner transformed into a superhero taking the responsibility to deteriorate their plans.”
To have a filmmaker reveal the film’s story when it’s still under production looks perplexing isn’t it? Andrew Pandian clarifies saying, “There isn’t anything to hide here. In fact, all superhero tales, right from the time of its origin have been based on this format. We have tried presenting the film with engrossing moments on narrative and technical aspects, which is shaping up exactly as planned. All credit goes to producer Thirukadal Udhayam for his great gesture of supporting us throughout the process.”
As cited earlier “Breaking News” is being shaped up with the team’s motive of delivering a top-notch visual treat. 450 CG artists supervised under V Dinesh Kumar are relentlessly working on this film. Bankrolled by Nagercoil based Thirukadal Udhayam, the film has Johnny Lal on cinematography and Anthony on editing.
