Your intelligence won’t be insulted while watching Dashavatar: K.S. Ravi KumarApril 16th, 2009 - 8:12 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Dashavatar director K.S. Ravi Kumar tells us why the mega budget entertainer is a must see.
“The film is a thrill ride with its spine-tingling action, including an airplane chase and also a car chase. It took us 280 days to complete the film. All of Kamal Haasan’s ten characters took around twenty days each to shoot, adding up to 200 days in all. The audience expects a lot from this movie and it has come out well enough to live up to that.” K.S. Ravi Kumar tells us.
“We know that they spend money like water but for this film they have spent a lot of money “on’ water as well for the Tsunami sequence”he adds.
“The various faces, the body language, the way he (Kamal Haasan) walks, his costumes, his gestures, his speech, the languages he uses, everything will be different for the ten roles and you get an opportunity to see these ten different roles in one film. Kamal Haasan came to cinema at five and at fifty he is still here and he will be here when he is hundred as well.” says Ravi Kumar.
On why the audience should see the movie the director says “I think, basically I am a cinema fan. And I have given you what I would like to see as a sensible cinema fan. So, I think your intelligence will not be insulted, your time will not be wasted, and you will really enjoy this film. And why you should watch the film, because we worked so hard for you. There is this peril of sounding like a postman or an SMS when we say that we have a message. We do have a message. The main message here is simple, you go to a theatre, you will enjoy the film.” -Sampurn Media
