Spellbinding: Kamal Haasan To Solve The Missing Case Of Malaysian Flight MH370?

Kamal Hasan is known for dishing out some unconventional movies. Some, so unconventional that it subsequently becomes almost impossible to complete it. Maruthanayagam for instance is a prime example and there are several other movies in that list. With Uttama Villain hitting the screens on April 10th and with films like Papanasam and Vishwaroopam 2 waiting in the wings to be released, speculations are rife about Kamal Haasan's upcoming film which might be based on the missing Malaysian flight, MH370.

The missing case of MH370 is one of the greatest aviation mystery till date and a film on it would truly be compelling if the project materializes. Few sources have also claimed that this film would be directed by Prabhu Deva and that it is for this film Kamal is eyeing on locations near Mauritius. However, there is no official confirmation on whether Ulaganayagan's location hunting in Mauritius is pertaining to the MH370 film.

Also, the fate of this exciting project could depend on the success of three waiting to be released Kamal films. Kamal Haasan is known for his perfectionism and hence a few years could be dedicated on researching about the disappeared flight which had 227 passengers on board if at all he decides to make a movie on it. Sources have also indicated that if the project takes shape, it will be made in Tamil and will also be released in Telugu and Hindi languages simultaneously. Stay tuned to make sure you don't miss any key information on the movie about the missing flight.

National Cinema Was Born In Chennai, Not In Mumbai Nor Kolkata: Kamal Haasan

Expressing his condolence to fans and family of legendary producer Daggubati Ramanaidu, Kamal Haasan spoke about the legacy the famed producer has left behind and his contribution to Indian cinema as a national producer. 

Interestingly Kamal also revealed that national cinema was born in South India especially in Chennai and not in Bollywood. He said, "the strongest point about South India, especially Chennai is that the national cinema sprang from here. It is not in the north that you found national cinema, not in Kolkata nor in Mumbai, but it is here." Kamal Haasan in the past, has always spoken about the quality of films made in South India and how it often goes unnoticed at a global stage. He has also mentioned that people should stop addressing Tamil films as Kollywood as movie buffs in the foreign countries might not recognize it.

It is to be noted that regional films made in India often gets recognized overseas only because of the star value if and when the movie has a big star associated to it. It is high time that quality movies made in regional language reaches wide range of audiences and considering all these films as Indian movies is the first step forward, according to the Ulaganayagan.

Meanwhile, Uttama Villain is expected to swoop into the big screens on April 2nd. Directed by Ramesh Aravind, the movie has legendary filmmakers K Viswanath and late K Balachander among others. The film's music will be taken care by Ghibran of Vaagai Sooda Vaa fame who will be seen working with Kamal Haasan for the first time.
