In this year, ‘Romeo Juliet’, ‘Sagalakala Vallavan’, ‘Thani Oruvan’ and ‘Boologam’ were released having Jeyam Ravi as male lead. Among these, ‘Sagalakala Vallavan’ was not commercially successful. As a result of this, Jeyam Ravi met media and conveyed his gratitude. This press meet was participated by Jeyam Ravi’s brother and directors of ‘Romeo Juliet’and ‘Boologam’ directors.
In his address, director Mohan Raja told that the film ‘Boologam’ can be considered as the inspiration for ‘Thani Oruvan’. I had seen this movie two years back and heard the story of this film in 2010 itself. By this experience, I might have inspired to direct ‘Thani Oruvan’. I do not have any hesitation to accept this. This movie ‘Boologam’ has been proved that story is vital to any movie.
