After the mammoth success of Pichaikkaran and Saithan, music director-actor-producer Vijay Antony is all set to release his next flick, Yeman. Directed by Jeeva Shankar of Amara Kaaviyam fame, the film has Vijay Antony and Miya George in the lead roles.
Speaking to DC, Jeeva Shankar says, "This is the first time I am attempting to direct a commercial film. Set in a political background, Yeman is a revenge thriller. We have completed the film and the screenplay will be the highlight. Vijay Antony will be seen with a twirled moustache throughout the movie."
The director believes that Yeman will be apt for today’s scenario. "Considering today’s political scenario, this film will be a perfect one. So far, filmmakers have come out with political movies from the perspective of the people. But, in Yeman, we will show the events from a politician’s point of view. We have explored how a leader would handle a particular situation," he asserts.
Elaborating on Miya’s character, Jeeva says, "She will be seen as an actress in the film. There is always an understanding between a politician and an actor and we have touched on this fact. Majority of the portions were shot in Chennai and we also erected a prison set in Puducherry. Two songs have been shot at a discotheque in Mumbai and in Georgia."
Vijay Antony, who is also scoring the music for the film, is now busy with the post production. Produced by Lyca Productions, Yeman is slated to release in February.
