What they say…

Producer V. Ramadoss: I have produced films such as Haridas and Puthagam . When the director narrated the story of Kannakkol to me, I liked it. I am sure the film will go down well with the audience.

Director V.A. Kumaresan: I have been in the film industry for the past 20 years, working under various directors. Kannakkol marks my directorial debut. As the film revolves around a thief and his way of life, I have told the story in a comical way. With family sentiment and good music, it will be an enjoyable watch.

Hero Bharani: I started my acting career with director Balaji Shakthivel’s Kalloori . Nadodigal got me a good name. I’ve landed my first lead role in Kannakkol .

Music director Bobby: I am a guitarist and keyboard player. I have worked with various music directors. Harris Jayaraj’s father Jayakumar and I used to work together. Sollamale marked my debut. I took a break due to health reasons. Now I am back with Kannakkol .

Music highlights: The five-track album opens with the hummable ‘Kamma Karaiyoram’ sung by Jose. ‘Uchimalai Pullaiyare,’ sung by Haricharan, is a track that will induce you to tap your feet. While ‘Athamaga Pudikavillai,’ sung by Velmurugan and Thanjai Chinnaponnu, is a fast-paced number with a folksy touch, ‘Asaiasaiyai,’ sung by Vijay Prakash and Madhushree, is a beautiful melody that hits all the right notes. ‘Suthi Irukku Ettu Thesanthan,’ sung well by Pavan, wraps up the album.
