Special Arrangement Priya Anand and Vikram Prabhu in Arima Nambi.

What it is about…

V. Creations’ Arima Nambi is an action thriller written and directed by Anand Shankar, a former assistant of AR Murugadoss. Vikram Prabhu and Priya Anand play the lead, while popular drummer Sivamani makes his debut as a music director. The story is about a girl being kidnapped and her subsequent rescue. The audio CD was released by AR Murugadoss and received by director Ameer.

What they say…

Producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu: When I came to know that Sivaji Ganesan’s grandson was keen on acting, I told Prabhu (Vikram Prabhu’s father) that he should act in my production. I am glad he agreed to play the role of Arjun in this film. Director Anand Shankar is the grandson of renowned playwright Komal Swaminathan. I have also launched an audio company called ‘Tiger Audio’ and for the first time we have released the songs of this film not only on CD but also on pen drive.

Director Anand Shankar: I learnt the nuances of filmmaking while working under Murugadoss. I must thank producer Thanu for backing this project. Both the leading players have done a wonderful job in the film.

Hero Vikram Prabhu: When I was signed on for Kumki, producer Thanu came home and told us that I must do a film with him. I was overwhelmed as I was aware of the huge publicity all his films get. The story narrated by Anand Shankar was good and I am sure the film will showcase a new me.

Music director Drums Sivamani: One day, producer Thanu met me at the Anantha Padmanabha Swamy temple in Adyar. He wanted me to score the music for his next film, which happened to be Arima Nambi. He paid me the advance amount in the temple itself.

Music Highlights: Of the five numbers in the album, ‘Yaro Yaraval,’ written by Karky and sung by Shabir and Runa Rizvi, is gripping. Javed Ali’s voice is fresh and he has done a good job with ‘Idayam,’ written by Na. Muthukumar. ‘Naanum Unnil Padhi,’ written by Pulamai Pithan, is sung well by Rita and Alma. ‘Neeyae Neeyae’ is a beautiful rendition by Shreya Ghoshal with great lyrics by Arivumathi. Finally, there is the film's theme song.
