Sillunu Oru Santhippu

What it is about…

Madras Enterprise’s Sillunu Oru Santhippu revolves around love that blossoms between two teenagers in a big family and how it grows into a mature relationship. Produced by S. Nandagopal and directed by Ravi Lallin, the film features Vimal, Deepa Shah, Oviya, Manobala and Charu Haasan. F.S. Faizal has scored the music and Viveka has written the lyrics. The audio of the film was released recently in the presence of directors S.J. Suryah and Prabhu Solomon.

Music highlights

‘Yaayum Yaayum,’ sung by Haricharan and Hemambika, is by far the best of the five songs in the album. ‘Adi Aathi’ in the voices of Aalap Raju and Anitha which comes next is above average. ‘Bussey Bussey’ is an interesting song by Vijay Prakash and Rita, with the sound of the horn and the shifting of the gear heard in the background. Sam P. Keerthan and Ramya NSK have done a neat job of ‘Bul Bul Tara.’ ‘Min Miniyae’ is a beautiful number sung by Karthik and Manotaangy.

What they say…

Producer S. Nandagopal: I have done three films — Kalabakkadhalan, Machakkaran, Newtonin Moondram Vidhi — and this is my fourth. I was in the field of advertising before I turned to film distribution. I have distributed more than 50 films in various languages, including Tamil. Impressed with the storyline of Sillunu Oru Santhippu, I decided to produce it. The film has come out well.

Director Ravi Lallin: I have worked with T. Nagaraj and Vincent Selva and written the dialogues for Newtonin Moondram Vidhi. Sillunu Oru Santhippu is based on a real-life incident, which took place in a family court in Chennai in 2000.One needs to be mature to nurture love. Charu Haasan and Kausalya Senthamarai play an elderly couple seeking a divorce.

Music director F.S. Faizal: Sillunu is the third film for which I have scored the music after Kalavaram and Newtonin Moondram Vidhi. I have composed the music for over 120 jingles and five short films, one of which got an international award.
