Truly Tamil for Seeman

For instance he used the term ‘aarambi’ instead of start.Apart from Maddy and Bhavana, the film also boasts of impressive cameos from Kanimozhi, Rajya Sabha MP and daughter of chief minister M Karunanidhi. Maddy who simply can’t stop going gaga over his friend’s commitment and dedication said, “I’m impressed by Seeman, in the entire film none of the characters use any English words.”

Director Seeman who earlier directed the movie Thambi starring Madhavan is going to direct this Vaazhthukal movie. The movie is produced under the banner of Amma Creations by Siva. Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose the music tunes for Vaazhthukal.
