Writers SUBA had created the space for themselves in the Tamil film industry . The Tamil film industry had rediscovered the art of ‘script writing’ through this twin writers Suresh and Bala. The writers say they are in their pinnacle of their career by scripting for the mega film of the year ‘Arrambam’ starring Ajith, Arya, Nayanthara, Tapsee and Daggupathy Rana. The duo have a lot to share about their experience in working for the film. Here are the few in their own words.
When the Director Vishnuvardhan met us regarding the script we decided not to rush on the scripting since the responsibility that was thrust on us very big. The cult image of Ajith sir was in our mind, and we took nearly three months to come out with the sketch. When we met Ajith sir to narrate the bottom line we were really surprised with his humbleness, no signs of stardom or celebrity. Even before we could come on terms with his simplicity he came with another surprising request that no thrusted heroism and punch dialogues should be included in the film. He insisted on the importance of the actor for the script than the script for the actor concept.
We were very amazed by his acceptance to share the screen space with other actors. This attitude of him displays the confidence on himself which is highly infectious. That image was evident with everybody in the unit. Another stunning factor we observed was the dedication and hard work he showed in shedding the extra kilos which we demanded for the character. He used to work out relentlessly for 6 to 7 hours a day. It is no easy job for a man who had gone through so many surgeries on his life. The most astonishing fact that we want to share is even though we have worked and work for many other heroes the amount of interest every one shows [from an average laborer to a high profile soft ware engineer ] in this project is phenomenal. Blended with the rich production values, stylish presentation by Vishnu, mesmerising music by Yuvan ensure our super confidence on the result. The mutual respect and care towards each other by Ajith sir and Arya will definitely inspire writers to work on more multi starrer scripts. This will be the ‘Arrambam’ ‘ the confident writers concluded.
