The National Award winning director Thiagarajan Kumararaja made his debut with the critically acclaimed Aaranya Kaandam, which went on to win several National Awards. After a gap of eight long years, his second film is set for release. Titled Super Deluxe, the film is scheduled to hit the silver screens this year. The shooting for this crime thriller has been completed and it has gone into post-production mode.
Super Deluxe has a bevy of stars in the cast with Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Samantha Akkineni, Mysskin and Ramya Krishnan in pivotal roles. In fact, it is an anthology of short films with each actor playing the central character in each segment.
While Vijay Sethupathi will be seen as a transgender person in one segment, Fahadh Faasil will be seen playing an urban youth in another. Besides playing the lead role, Fahadh will also dub with his own voice. Samantha’s character is named Vaembu and her role is intriguing, from what we know.
The film is bankrolled by Tyler Durden and Kino Fist in association with East West Dream Workz Entertainment & Alchemy Vision Workz. Touted to hit the silver screens on September 28, the film also stars Gayathrie and Bagavathi Perumal. While the film has been penned by the director Thiagarajan, the additional screenplay was written by Mysskin, Nalan Kumarasamy and Neelan K Sekar.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed the music for the film and three popular cinematographers – PC Sreeram, PS Vinod and Nirav Shah – have handled the camerawork. Sathyaraj Natarajan is the editor of Super Deluxe.
Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s directorial debut Aaranya Kaandam went on to win several awards, including the National Film Award for Best First Film of a Director and the Best Editing, won by Praveen KL and NB Srikanth.
With a bunch of talented technicians and actors being a part of Super Deluxe, it is easily one of the most anticipated films of the year.
