Mugamoodi is probably the biggest and most prestigious film actor Jiiva is doing, maybe after the multi-starrer Nanban directed by Shankar. The much-delayed movie directed by the widely-acclaimed Mysskin, is supposed to be a superhero subject and brings with it a lot of expectations.
The shooting was wrapped up some time ago and the stage is set for the music to be launched in Chennai in a couple of days’ time.
Meanwhile, it should be said getting to work with a film-maker Mysskin would have given a new perspective to the actor in Jiiva. The talented, young artiste, son of noted producer R B Choudhary, has slowly climbed the ladder from his start as the lover boy and his skills came to the fore in films like Ram, Dishyum and the mega-hit Ko in 2011.
It has been a while since Nanban released and his role came in for a lot of praise in the multi-hero subject and all eyes would be Jiiva when Mugamoodi hits the screen.
There are a lot of hopes about the movie, since it is an offering by Mysskin of Anjathe-fame and the duo will be hoping that their chemistry works to a big advantage.
The film has apart from Jiiva, Narain, a Mysskin discovery and Pooja Hegde in key roles and some stunts supervised by leading stunt masters from Hong Kong.
The film is slated for release on August 31 tentatively.
