Nandaa, who impressed us with films like the romantic-horror film Eeram (2009), is playing an investigative cop, in his next, titled Kallaattam. The Katham Katham (2015) actor says he plays a police officer who tries to expose a chain snatching gang. “But I’ll be seen throughout the film as a police officer in mufti. I don’t wear the police uniform even once. In fact, there are no action sequences. We have attempted something novel with this script,” adds Nandaa.

Nandaa.jpgQuiz him on why he wanted to do this film, the Kodambakkam (2006) fame tells CE, “I didn’t want to do a cop role again; but went ahead with this because of cinematographer-turned-director Ramesh. It’s an edge-of-the-seat investigative thriller. He managed to convince me. Unlike other cop movies, we have showcased police officers with high esteem. We have tried to portray that cop can be people’s ‘trusted friends’.”

The story of Kallaattam is about a hero who saves a five-year-old child battling for her life after a mishap with a chain-snatcher. Interestingly, the film has only one theme song and the heroine Shaarika will be seen in flashback scenes. Nandaa shares, “Actor Richard plays the child’s father in the film. And we both have  worked together in Adhibar (2015).” Kallattam runs for about 100 minutes and was shot extensively in Madurai and Chennai.

Umar Ezhilan has composed music for the movie and actor Elavarasu has done a pivotal role. The crew has completed shooting and the film will be released in a couple of months.
