Interview
Tamil cinema director Gautham Vasudev Menon who has been directing the next Tamil movie of Tamil actor Thala Ajith which is not yet named and widely called as Thala 55 has given an interview about the movie Thala 55 and has revealed some interesting facts and interesting shooting spot events below. The interview of Gautham Vasudev Menon started with his words about the lyrics of a song from Thala 55 that "Oru Velli Golusu Pola Indha Boomi Sinungam Keezha, Aniyadha Vairam pola Andha Vaanam minungum mela" and Ultimate Star Ajith Kumar is singing this song on screen and this song is establishing the role of Ajith in thala 55 - says Gautham Vasudev Menon.

Then the director Gautham Vasudev Menon revealed the basic story line of Thala 55 that the story is the thin line of the travel of an youngster from his 28th year of age ( Entering the marital life ) upto 38th year of age ( 10 years of life after marriage ). So there are 4 number of different character looks for Ajith in the movie Thala 55 that one of the portions of the role is coming with the look of curling haired Ajith Kumar, Ajith with Salt and pepper look and two other looks and Ajith has done many things to show the difference between those four looks of him in the movie. Ajith has done ocmplete work outs and became fit for an action block in the movie, Then the people who were traveling in his real life for more than 10 years are telling that Ajith is totally looking different and they like the looks. If this is the same reaction from the audience after the release of Thala 55, then the part 2 of Thalla 5 can be expected -says Gautham Vasudev Menon.



Question to Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon 

What kind of change overs you have done to Tamil actor Ajith for the movie Thala 55?

Answer from Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon 

I have not told his as fixed by myself. But since when the decision was made to start the shooting of Thala 55, he ( Tamil actor Ajith ) has started learning so many things. One day Ajith said he has learnt boxing and there is a mood for the character of Ajith in Thala 55. All of a sudden, Ajith said he has learnt playing Guitar and said it would be good if he ( Ajith ) himself plays Guitar for a video song in Thala 55. Before going for an action block, Ajith made his body slim and came. But none of these things were demanded by the script of the movie Thala 55. Ajith has thought himself about learning these things for the goodness of the movie Thala 55 and he has done them perfectly.

Question to Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

Tamil actresses Trisha Krishnan and Anushka Shetty - both of them are seniors. How did these two actresses got set for this movie Thala 55?

Tamil actress Trisha for
 Tamil movie Thala 55
Answer from Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

First of all, we ( Thala 55 team ) fixed Tamil actress Anushka Shetty and I asked Trisha by thinking if Trisha does the other role of this movie. Trisha asked as already the script has Anushka how important will her ( Tamil actress Trisha ) role in Thala 55? It is a good question. But still, she ( Trisha ) said yes without expecting for my ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon ) answer for her question. I conveyed the hesitation of Trisha to Anushka. For that Anushka said, there is no problem in that, I will take the role of Trisha then. When I said back the verdict of Anushka to Trisha, Trisha said, she knew that Anusha will tell this thing only because Anushka has so good character in real life. So I ( Trisha ) will do the role what you said to me in the beginning. So now the ball is in my ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon  ) court. I should give them ( Trisha and Anushka ) equal role in the script and when tell about these things to Ajith, he said I ( Gautham ) will handle all these things just like that and he ( Ajith ) smiled.

Question to Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

What is the role of Tamil actor Arun Vijay in Thala 55?

Answer from Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :


Tamil actor Arun Vijay with Tamil actor Ajith
for Tamil movie Thala 55
Please don't ask me ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon  ) questions directly like, will the character of Actor Arun Vijay is a positive role or negative work in the movie? But it is so difficult for a hero who has given number of hit movies recently as a hero to accept the role of Arun Vijay in Thala 55. Tamil actor Ajith has said to Arun Vijay that he ( Arun Vijay ) has fit body and Ajith wants to go gym every day when seeing Arun Vijay and Ajith has added that Arun Vijay is the motivation for him ( Ajith ) to get body fit. This much Arun Vijay has fit body and maintaining the same. This is how both Ajith Kumar and Tamil actor Arun Vijay have been getting tumbles by competing together, before going for the action block for the movie Thala 55.

Question to Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

Fans of Ajith Kumar will be very happy if you reveal the opening song and the punch dialogue of Ajith in this movie..?

Answer from Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

I want to make clear over here a thing that this movie will be liked very much by the fans of Tamil actor Ajith Kumar. But the usual things will not be in this movie. Ajith used to tell me often that, this is a good script and please do not add any things for me in this movie for the sake of me ( Tamil actor Ajith ) and disturb the movie. I would request all the audience to enter the cinema theaters just with the expectation of seeing a good movie and not with the expectation of seeing the scenes with flying lorries or blasting machine guns etc., Because all these things have been done by Ajith Kumar earlier in many movies already.

Let me ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon ) reveal the dialogue of Ajith in a video scene of Thala 55 that he says,

All mothers used to tell by seeing their kid that the kid is very beautiful even if the kid is not beautiful to see. But in my case, my mother said the truth.
The audience can see this kind of scenes and some romantic scenes in between the commercial movie, Thala 55.

Question to Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

Tell us something about the victorious music combination of Gautham - Harris Jaya raj - Thamarai..?

Answer from Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

There are 5 video songs in the movie Thala 55 and all those 5 have been made with lot of care to get super hit on time. There is a duet song in the movie Thala 55 with the following lyrics;

Mazhai Vara Pogudhu
Thulikalum Thoorudhu
Nanaiyaamal enna seiven?
Madhuramum oorudhu
Malarvanam Moodudhu
Tholaiyaamal enge poven?

Question to Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

When hearing all your words above, it looks like, Thala 55 does not have the materials of Ajith. How did you got the commitment of Ajith in this movie?

Answer from Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon :

I got the commitment of Ajith without telling the complete story of Tamil movie Thala 55. Usually I ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon ) do make script of all my movies from Tamil movie Minnale only upto one shot before the climax and I do not decide the climax in the beginning and start the shooting. But the thinking about the climax will be going inside me ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon  ) all over the shooting times. Apart from the shooting works, the involvement of the artists of the movie and the finishing of each and every shots will create the perfect climax for the story of its own. This is my formulae for all of my movies including Tamil movie Khakka Kakka and Varanam Aayiram.

By that way, any of my artists of Tamil movie Thala 55 including Ajith do not know the climax of the movie so far. So I said the story of Thala 55 to Thala Ajith without the climax only. The reaction of Tamil actor Ajith Kumar after listening to the story of Thala 55 was, first half super and the half an hour of the second half is also perfect, and Ajith came to the shooting spot. Even now, Ajith asked me ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon  ) Ji.. You have not revealed the climax of this movie yet and you are keeping the climax so secret? So I ( Tamil Cinema Director Gautham Vasudev Menon  ) have to tell him the climax of Thala 55 very soon.
