Dhanus is acting, writing and singing for his upcoming movie Kodi
Kodi is an upcoming political thriller written and directed by R. S. Durai Senthilkumar and produced by Vetrimaaran. It stars Dhanush, Trisha and Anupama Parameswaran in lead roles. What is exciting about the movie is that Dhanus is playing a dual role in the movie and it is the first time that Dhanus is playing dual in any film.
The trailer of the movie was released at a grand event and also a press conference was called to brief the media about the movie. Audiences that include members of the media watched the trailer and the amazing thing is that they all praised the trailer. It got full out of full marks by the audiences. Elated by the positive response of the audiences, Dhanush took to Twitter to thank the audiences for the upbeat response. Audio of the movie was launched at the same event but it wasn’t as grand.
Dhanush revealed that he will work in the film after it was announced in August 2015. He further maintained that he will play a legendary role of two brothers in Kodi. Trisha was selected for female lead. Her role is also important as it has a negative touch. There is a second female lead and she is Anupama Parameshwaran. But it was Shamili that was signed for female lead before Anupama replaced her due to her health issues.
Soundtrack of Kodi is composed by Santosh Narayanan and lyrics by Vivek and Arunraja Kamaraj. It has 5 songs and the total length of songs is 18.23 minutes. While most songs are penned by Vivek, one song, and it is the main song, has co-writers. The main song is written by the trio Vivek-Dhanush-Kamaraj. Also Dhanush is a co-singer in the main song that is of 3.24 minutes duration.
The movie is releasing on 27 October just three days before Diwali and two days before the release of two other mega budget films. But Kodi is a different genre as it is a political thriller.
Kodi first look & poster
The poster of the movie is much revealing as it is showing Dhanush in double role. As it is known that Dhanush is doing a dual role in the movie, the poster further highlights the roles. In the poster, Dhanush has two back to back pictures but one picture is in beards and moustaches, while the other has moustaches only. The background isn’t clearly visible but it seems that there is uprising in the background.
