Director Suseenthiran is known for directing different genre of films but his forte seems to be sports-based dramas. Interestingly, he made his debut with Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu, a film on Kabbadi. He is currently directing a series of films including Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu, Champion, Angelina and Kennedy Club. Well, it is Kennedy Club that is in the news now.

Reports are that the Chinese dubbing rights of this sports drama have been won for a whopping Rs 2 crore. Indian films do find patronage in the Chinese film market but a Tamil movie making it to the list is surprising and exciting.

The film has veteran director Bharathiraja in the lead role and teaming up with him is another director and actor Sasikumar. The cast also includes Samuthirakani in a pivotal role. The rest of the actors in it are Meenakshi, Neethu, Gayathri, Soumya, Soundarya and Smriti.

The technical crew of Kennedy Club comprises D Imman for music, B Sekar for art direction and RB Gurudev for cinematography. Thai Saravanan is bankrolling the venture under his banner Nallusamy Pictures. Kennedy Club is slated for release on the Tamil New Year’s Day next year.

It may be noted here that Suseenthiran’s yet another sports drama, Champion, went on the floors some months ago and is progressing at a brisk pace.

Suseenthiran began his career as a director with the sports drama Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu, a poignant tale about a Kabbadi player drawn from real life incidents. Suseenthiran has won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment for his film Azhagar Samiyin Kuthirai, which has Appu Kutty and Saranya Mohan in the lead roles.
