Mr. Senthil is releasing this film under Saraswati Enterprises. A quick dailies press meet of the film was held yesterday as the film is slated to release on 5th August.
Speaking at the Press Meet, Director T. Sampath Kumar said, “I have made this film based on a true incident in which 23 people lost their lives in a fire incident in a theater in Nagercoil 23 years ago. However, this film is completely different from the usual horror films. Ghost Revenge is one of the best horror movies ever. In this film, ghosts do not take revenge.. Forgiveness is not only for mankind… but even a ghost has it. We can even say that it is a triangular ghost love story and we have told the sacrifice of a ghost in this film. There are not one but 26 ghosts in this film.
The film’s hero Ashok Kumar, plays the role of Jeeva, a sound engineer, a city boy, and a village school student. He has shown a difference in appearance and performance in both of these characters. He has taken a risk in the climactic action scene. Even though there have been many roles related to the film industry in the cinema, the character of a sound engineer has appeared for the first time in this film.
Chandini, who plays the role of an ultra model girl, wore various modern clothes before the interval, but in the second half, she wore only one costume throughout. Sheela Rajkumar plays the role of Gomati. If the Thoothukudi- Tirunelveli area of the film has been sold after watching the song Kalkona in which he acted, then it can be said that the song has been a success. He also quoted saying that he didn’t have any of the usual problems with two heroines working together in this film.
Actor Ashok Kumar said, “This year my third release this year and ‘Mayathirai’ is being released in theatres. As per the title ‘Mayathrai’, the story of this film has been created as if it is happening in a theatre. This way, Kanna theater in Puliyangudi village is also a character in this film. It was so easy to act with the two heroines in this film, just like when two friends were on a fun trip with a camera.”
Talking about her role, actress Chandini said, “The producer of this film Saibabu has the experience of working as a costume designer for all the top leading actresses. I am very happy and privileged to have someone like that designing clothes for me too. Usually when I am called to act in such horror films, I am offered the role of a ghost. But that was not the case here. I enjoyed acting in scenes related to theater. She also went on to add, “Ashok and I have been friends for ten years. When good films come to him, he also recommends them to me. But now for the first time both of us have acted together. It was only then I saw him take risks and perform with such skill even in tough fight scenes that he had trained so much. I am happy that after a long time I got a song to dance to in this film.”
The producer of this film Saibabu is proud of designing clothes for many leading stars. He has worked as a personal costume designer for superstar Rajinikanth in many films, especially his contribution in the film Enthiran is very important. He has designed the costumes for more than 100 robots in robot scenes. A few years ago, he had produced a film named ‘Thali Pudhusu’ starring Ramki and Khushbu. The story of ‘Mayathirai’ has impressed him so much that he has started production again.
Producer Sai Babu said, “When I heard the story of this film, Sheela Rajkumar’s character in it attracted me a lot and so did Chandni’s character. It is for these two characters that I came forward to make this film,” he said.
The film is slated to hit the theaters on August 5th and preparations are underway to release it in more theaters including Kerala and Karnataka.
