What it is about…

What happens at the end of the late night revelry indulged in by five IT professionals forms the pivot of Archer Cinemas’ Gubeer produced by Thilipkumar Rajendren. The film features Thilip, Ravi, White, Tamil, Pratap and Prabhu. The story, screenplay, dialogue and direction are by Thilip. Santhosh Sriram has handled the camera. Karthikeyan has penned the lyrics. The audio was released by Anand of Saregama and received by director Karthik Subbaraj.

What they say…

Producer, director and hero Thilip: Though I did engineering, I have always been passionate about cinema. I picked up the basics of filmmaking from the Internet. With only Rs. 70,000, my last month’s salary, in my pocket, I began to write the script and slowly everything fell into place. We shot the movie and completed the post-production work in about eight months.

Music directors Aditya-Vishal: I learnt Hindustani, Sufi and Western music from the K.M. Music Conservatory. My friend Vishal did a course in sound engineering and has finished the fifth grade keyboard exam conducted by the Trinity College of Music, London. Both of us are doing B.Com in Vivekananda College and also scoring music together.

Music highlights: There are eight numbers in the album, and ‘Un Manam’ is repeated thrice. One version represents the 80s, one the contemporary times and yet another in dub step with rap by Brodhav. All three are pleasing. Velmurugan’s rendition of ‘Madurai’ is good. ‘Live Life’ sung by Aditya has energetic rapping by Brodhav. ‘The sound of Chennai’ is a mesmerising instrumental. ‘Penne,’ sung by Aditya, is lively. So is the title number ‘Gubeer’ sung by Naresh Iyer.
