Ace director Shankar talk about Endhiran (also spelt as Enthiran). He still feels it is too early to talk about Endhiran (also spelt as Enthiran) but yielded to reveal a few things with 75% of the schedule over. Shankar said it would be one rung higher than what one saw in Sivaji which is Rajinikanth’s youthful look. Endhiran would fulfil all the expectations which audiences expect from Rajinikanth. His chemistry with Aiswharya Rai (in the role of a medical research student) should be a visual treat for the diehard fans of both.
The Endhiran effect had to be special, more so with Rajinikanth at the helm. Shankar justifies the excessive use of graphics as the plot is all about a robot. Normally, the trend is to finish the movie and go for graphics. We had a graphics team accompanying us right through the shoot to decide on the angle and where the graphics effect would fit in ideally. It would be a victory if our audiences, with a taste for Hollywood fare, compare those films favourably with Endhiran. The picturisation will be in the Hollywood range but the audience will be able to relate the happenings with the issues like the ones of Indian and Anniyan
Preparing for the final leg of the shoot (two songs to be canned abroad) Shankar said the first science-fiction film in Tamil will deal with the good and bad effects of robots in the backdrop of Indian culture.
