More about Dhruva Natchathiram
It wouldn’t be far-fetched to call Dhruva Natchathiram, Gautham Vasudev Menon’s dream project. In fact, the director himself has mentioned in several interviews that he had no interest in acting, and the only reason he got into it was to fund the production of the film. The film is touted to be a spy action film, which follows the adventures of a secret agent group called The Basement, headed by Chiyaan Vikram’s character John.
The film also features an ensemble cast including Ritu Varma, Vinayakan, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Simran, and many more. In a recent interview, the helmer mentioned that he has deliberately left out several loose ends in the film, which will be addressed in the sequels. He also added that despite the loose ends, the film does not feel jumpy or disjoint.
Recently, director N. Lingusamy took to social media to share his response after watching the film and said that the film was fantastic. He praised all the performances and specifically mentioned that Vinayakan stole the show. He also praised the collaboration between the helmer and the music director Harris Jayaraj.
