'Kochadaiiyaan' is a performance capture photorealistic film with Rajinikanth multiple roles. The most outstanding of these is that of Kochadaiiyaan, meaning ‘the king with a long, curly mane’. He’s sworn to defend his country.
“Ye kochadaiiyaan apne desh aur deshwasiyon ki raksha ke liye janma hai,” says Rajinikanth in one scene. The enemies of this king are not few.
Deepika Padukone plays the love interest of the character named Rana (also played by Rajinikanth).
The theatrical trailer of ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ is quite a visual spectacle. We see Rajinikanth leading an army, riding chariots, slaying four wolves in a single swoop, go aerial on a pair of horses, and wield swords and javelins with the poise of an intrepid warrior.
‘Kochadaiiyaan’ has music by A. R. Rahman. The story, screenplay and dialogues have been penned by K S Ravikumar. The lyrics are by National Award winning lyricist Vairamuthu. The film is produced by Sunil Lulla & Sunanda Murali Manohar.
Directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin, 'Kochadaiiyaan' will hit theatres on 11th April 2014.
