'Kochadaiiyaan' a Rajinikanth film in new technology: Soundarya Rajinikanth

Dad is shouldering 'Kochadaiiyaan' totally: Soundarya Rajinikanth

'Kochadaiiyaan' a Rajinikanth film in new technology: Soundarya Rajinikanth Soundarya Rajinikanth at ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ media meet
Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin underscores the box office pull of her father Rajinikanth, but she hopes audience would also appreciate the use of novel technology.

Debutante director Soundarya R. Ashwin makes no bones about the fact that her father's presence in her movie "Kochadaiiyaan" is a major pull for the movie. She however hopes people don't underestimate the power of the new technology used in the entertainer.

"Kochadaiiyaan", a period drama, is said to be the country's first 'photo-realistic performance capture' entertainer. Of course, people are curious about experiencing the new technology, but Soundarya knows that a majority of viewers will pour in only because it's a Rajinikanth-starrer.

"There's no doubt about it that people will come to watch my father's performance. That's hundred percent true. But I think anything new requires something that pulls you towards it and as far as 'Kochadaiiyaan' is concerned, it is not just the new technology that attracts you first, but the fact that it is a Rajinikanth film in a new technology," Soundarya, Rajinikanth's younger daughter, told IANS here.

"Dad is shouldering the film totally, and I need to thank him for bringing this technology to the country," she added.

For the film, Soundarya has used the performance capture technology, where the performance of the actors is captured and a virtual image of the character is created. She recently said that she wanted to immortalise her father, and she has done it with "Kochadaiiyaan", which is releasing Friday.

Rajinikanth had earlier said that he hardly knows anything about technology. In that scenario, one wonders how Soundarya convinced the 63-year-old to be part of such a project.

Explaining how she pitched the film to him, she said: "This was during the time when my father was recovering from his illness. We didn't want him to go through any physical strain, and the advantage of this technology is that it's very less physical strain on the actors. But it's a lot of traumatic mental strain on the animators at a later stage because once the actors finish the job, we (animators and technicians) go into the studios and then create the real thing.

"Everything you see in 'Kochadaiiyaan' is created. So when I approached him with the concept, he believed in the story and he believed that this technology could do justice to the story. Also, he believed I could pull it off. That's why he agreed."

After his stint in "Kochadaiiyaan", it seems Rajini has embraced technology. A case in point is his presence on social networking site Twitter, which has fetched him an overwhelming response from the fans.

Soundarya believes that the fact that a film like "Kochadaiiyaan" is releasing in the country is a mark of the growth that Indian cinema has witnessed over its 100 years of existence.

"We have gone from black and white, to colour to stereoscopic, and now Indian cinema has moved to performance capture. We are moving ahead and that is good," added the 29-year-old.
