When news about cinematographer-director Jeeva’s death while shooting for ‘Dhaam Dhoom’ in Russia reached Kollywood, it took the industry by shock. Now, the project he had passionately begun has almost neared completion and will be released in May.
Producers Murali Manohar and Sunada said the film was almost over and only one song was to be shot. “This is ace director Jeeva’s first ever action film made in his own style, with sophistication. He has shown Russia in all its splendour and beauty. We shot nearly 40 days in and around Russia and each location was totally fascinating.”
The story is about a young doctor who falls in love with a village girl, played by Kangana Ranaut. After getting engaged, they go to Russia for a medical conference. There, the doctor gets trapped. How the two of them escape forms the rest of the plot.
Executive producer Jayakumar said cameraman Rajasekar, who has worked with Jeeva, and second unit director G.K. Manikandan, who worked with Jeeva from his very beginning, has finished the project as was visualised by the cameraman-director.
