Producer - Madras Talkies [G,Srinivasan, Mani Ratnam]

Cinematographer - Ravi K.Chandran

- Typical with Mani Ratnam Style, no other details of the film has been given out to the media.

- "I play Abhishek Bachchanís role in the Tamil version of the same film. Itís an unapologetically grey role, and Iíve never played a grey character before. Itís going to be the most challenging role Iíve ever done. Iím actually shivering at the prospect because itís going to be very different from what I am as a person. That always frightens me." - Madhavan [The New Indian Express]

- This time around Mani Ratnam hasn't even held an official press briefing to announce the launch of the film. And has been completely avoiding the press, especially the Tamil media. [May be he has learnt from his previous experiences, the dirty games played by the Tamil media only to create sensation and publicity. The way the Tamil media treated Mani Ratnam's last film 'Kannathil Muthamittal' is an example.]

CURRENT STATUS - Shooting going on in various parts of Chennai. Meanwhile, shooting of the Hindi version, Yuva will restart in Kolkata during Jan '04..

4) Yelelo

Cast - Parthiban

Director - Parthiban

Producer - Parthiban [Bioscope Film Framers]

- 10 songs

- title song by Sudha Raghunandhan

- As per unconfirmed reports, 4 songs are over. Also that a song "Vaanam Vaanam" sung by Karthik has been recorded. "Its a stunning song with tap dancing percussion, with a unique blend of Tamil folk music".

- Former TN Chief minister and poet Dr.M.Karunanidhi is penning the lyrics for one song. The song is apparently based on the Pongal festival.

- Speaking at the launch function of the film, Rahman said that director Parthiban had narrated two stories to him. He felt that there was ample scope for folk music in the second story, which he had accepted and is titled "Yelelo". Rahman said that for this movie he has decided to blend the local folk music elements with Irish folk music songs. He hoped that this experiment will present these styles in a new light.

- Director Parthiban talking about his latest film "Yelelo" said that the movie had a rural theme and was going to be shot entirely in one village. Since around 6 to 7 songs were going to be picturized in the same set in the village, he had insisted on all the songs being ready before the shooting could begin. Parthiban is glad that Rahman has taken special interest in this film and has high expectations from the film.

CURRENT STATUS - Still in pre-production stages. No idea when this film will go on the floors.
