IT WAS a glittering affair at the audio launch of Veedu Productions’ Vere Vazhi Ille (No Way Out) in Kuala Lumpur.

The event, held during the Global Indian Festival at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, was also to appreciate the cast and crew members of the movie, which will be released in Malaysian cinemas on July 2.

Several local artistes gave a glamorous and lively performance to songs from the movie.

Vere Vazhi Ille is Veedu Productions’ third movie after two comedies – Vetti Pasanga and Vilaiyaatu Pasanga – and will be a different genre – horror and humour.

Editor M.S. Premnath is the director of the movie. Denes Kumar and Jasmine Michael play the lead roles, while others in the movie are Sai Prasanth from India, Alvin Martin, Magendran, Prakash and Thiran.

Denes Kumar, who is also the movie’s producer, said P. Vimala, who had directed the first two movies, was currently busy with her studies.

“Her forte is comedy and both the movies were well received by Malaysians. We wanted to give our local fans a different genre. Based on current trends, we opted for a horror-comedy.

“We roped in Premnath, who last directed the movie Uyir about 10 years ago, to helm the movie. Uyir was also a horror movie and earned accolades.

“Being an editor, Premnath has come up with an excellent plot. He is a very talented film-maker.

“We are confident the movie will be a hit among Malaysians,” said Denes Kumar after the launch of the audio album.

He said the event was also an opportunity for them to thank the cast and crew.

“Producing a Tamil movie in Malaysia is a challenging task. Without the support of the cast and crew it is not possible.

“We are fortunate to have a very co-operative cast. We managed to complete the movie within six months,” he said.

Daddy Shaq, a popular music director, is the composer for Vere Vazhi Ille while the lyricists are Maney Villainz, Psychomantra, Viveck-Ji and Stylomannavan.

The love song, Anbe Nee Pothum, will be in the movie while Vera Vazhi Ille will be used as a promotional soundtrack.

Adding to the list is a minus-one with lyrics included for the pleasure of karaoke fans and lovers of instrumental music.

The CD album will also include another 13 Malaysian hits by Psychomantra, Kashika Selvam, Neshman, Goldfinger and MR 5K.

Denes Kumar said the movie would be screened in about 40 cinemas nationwide.

“We are expecting positive response. Our previous movie – Vetti Pasanga – was a success at the box office. It must be noted that it was the first Malaysian-produced Tamil movie to be shown on Astro First.

“We hope to see Vera Vazhi Ille becoming a success too,” he added.
