70 minutes of graphics in Sundar C’s Aranmanai!

The filmmaker Sundar C’s horror comedy Aranmanai to be high on graphics

Filmmaker Sundar C says his upcoming Tamil horror-comedy Aranmanai, which will feature more than one hour of computer graphics imagery, will be the best in recent times in the industry.

“The film will be high on graphics, running approximately to seventy minutes. I feel it’s going to be the best experience for audiences in recent times,” Sundar told IANS.

Known for churning successful comedies over the years, he is attempting the horror genre for the first time.

A huge castle plays an important role in the film and Sundar says they spent over Rs.3 crore to construct it.

“We wanted to shoot in a castle but we couldn’t find one after searching for months. We finally decided to make one and it cost us over Rs.3 crore. As many as 400 people worked on the construction of the castle over a period of three months,” he added.

Aranmanai features an ensemble cast of Santhanam, Hansika Motwani, Lakshmi Rai, Andrea Jeremiah, Kovai Sarla and Thambi Ramaiah in important roles.

Sundar, who has starred in few films, will be seen in a cameo in Aranmanai, slated for release in June.
