Will Jiiva’S ‘Mugammoodi’ Encourage More Super Hero Stories?
Kollywood cinema is slowly venturing into new areas whether in its choice of stories or characters while Jiiva and Narain are actors who have proved ready to explore new themes. Crime fighters in special costumes have never been attempted in Tamil cinema after the days of M.G.R. and Jaishankar but it looks like the arrival of Spiderman and Superman and other Hollywood crime fighters have emboldened our makers to attempt such stories too. Narain is the villain in this costume drama. Reports further claimed that both Jiiva and Narain would undergo special training in martial arts with experts from the Shaolin Temple in China being flown in. Presently the Mugamoodi team is in Switzerland to shoot a song with Jiiva and Pooja Hegde. Most of the scenes for the film have been shot in realistic but interesting locations in Chennai. Whether for a scene or a song director Mysskin has always been shooting within the country but, for this duet in Mugamoodi, he has gone all the way to Switzerland. Mysskin is a director who always stays true to his script. Hope the director maintains the same standards for this duet song as well!
