Suspense Flick

Following in the footsteps of entertainers that are breaking the mould of stereotypes and formula flicks, here is another filmmaker — Raghavendra Prasad exploring the out-of-the-box realm in his own style. Prasad, who had assisted Karthik Subbaraj in his projects, seems to be inspired by Subbaraj, who is known for surprising themes. His flicks have garnered both critical acclaim and raked in the moolah at the box office. Prasad’s 54321 produced by Main Stream Productions promises to offer a new experience to audiences. The film is expected to be an edge-of-the-seat entertainer with a carefully crafted plot.

54321, which stars Aarvin of Rummy and Thaandavakone fame and Kannada actor Pavithra, also features Shabir, who was seen in filmmaker Lakshmi Ramakrishnan’s Nerungi Vaa Muthamidaathey. Shabir will be playing the baddie in the latest flick.

Talking about the project Prasad says that revenge forms a pivotal part of the plot, while there is a generous seasoning of suspense within the taut two-hour narration. “Five characters, four lifestyles, three murders, two hours and one revenge form the basic plot of this film,” says the director of the film. While Kadhal-fame Joshua Sridhar has composed the music for this film, Na Muthukumar has penned the lyrics.

 The technical crew includes Baanu Murugan, who has cranked the camera. Rajeesh (editing), Dilip Subbarayan (stunt), Ram (art), Sharif (choreography) and Iqbal (sound effects). The film’s shooting is complete and the producers are planning to release  it by next month.
