Balaji Tharaneetharan’s second film has been titled Oru Pakka Kathai. The film will be launched on September 1 in the presence of actor Kamal Haasan in Chennai. The shooting will begin in earnest after the launch, according to the director. Govind Menon (the leader of the band Thaikkudam Bridge), who came into prominence for his work on the Malayalam film, North 24 Kaatham, will be composing the score for OPK. Vasan Visual Ventures produces the drama movie while C Prem Kumar handles the cinematography. The cast of the film is being kept under wraps for now and will be announced during the launch.
Balaji had also announced earlier this year that he was working on a project tentatively titled Seethakadhi. Speaking to us, he said,”I was working on it for quite some time, but I have shelved it for now. I will do Oru Pakka Kathai and then go back to Seethakadhi. I’m not indefinitely postponing it. It is very much in the works.”
