Amara

What it is about…

The audio of TKM Films’ Amara, produced by S. A. Jalaludeen and directed by M. Jeevan, was released recently by Abirami Ramanathan, UTV Dhananjayan and director K. Bhagyaraj and received by directors Prabhu Solomon, Karu. Pazhaniyappan, Rasu Madhuravan and Vettrimaran. Director Jeevan is also the cinematographer and lyricist of Amara. D. Imman has scored the music, while Vairabalan has taken care of the art. The cast includes new face Amaran, Sruthi Ramakrishnan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Sampath, Ganja Karuppu, Livingston, Vaiyapuri and Tharika.

Music highlights

There are eight tracks with three repeated in karaoke style. Among the five tracks, ‘Yennennamo Yennennamo,’ sung by Haricharan and Ramya, is the best. In the voices of Seerkazhi Sivachidambaram and Chinmayi Sripada comes the sensual number ‘Simmakallu Simran’, while Naresh Iyer, Jayaraj, MLR Karthikeyan have sung ‘Theeyum Theeyum,’ a beautiful ballad. ‘Koora Podava,’ sung by Priya Hemesh, Jayaraj and MLR Karthiykeyan, is another interesting number. ‘Atha Magalaiyum Mama Magalaiyum’ is a group song rendered well by MLR Karthikeyan, Velmurugan, Big Nikk (the rap portions), Chinnaponnu and Madurai Saroja.

What they say…

Producer S. A. Jalaludeen: I am a businessman who turned to film production with Amara. My younger brother Amaran has played the lead. I was impressed when I saw the rushes of the film. The audio is also a big success.

Director Jeevan: Beginning my career as a still photographer for movies such as Jeans, Iruvar and Nandha, I turned a cameraman with Kokki, Thuthukudi, Nenjirukkumvarai and Saattai. As a director, I have made Mayilu, Gnabagangal and Amara, my third venture. It has come out well and I hope it does well too.

Hero Amaran: I wanted to be in the movie industry but was hesitant to approach director. I was delighted to get the chance of playing the lead in my brother’s production. Director Jeevan asked me to put on weight, around 10 kg, for this movie. I also learnt dance and stunts. Working with senior artistes and technicians, I could learn the nuances of acting. My aim is to prove that I am a good actor.

Music director D. Imman: Prabhu Solomon introduced me to Jeevan when he was working in his unit as a cameraman. We began work on this movie much before Mynaa. But the project got delayed due to various reasons which, I feel, have only proved beneficial. The songs have come out well. Director Jeevan has kept many portions in the film sans dialogue to be filled up with music. Amara is a visually-oriented film and all of us have given it our best.
