Sports and films are the only platforms that inject the tonic of oneness and unity. These have been the gateways to such paradisiacal feeling, where crowds forget the classifications and differentiations, thereby coming together to celebrate the moments. This is one good valid reason why films based on ‘Sports’ genre evokes high level enthusiasms among the audiences beyond the linguistic barriers and regional boundaries. With this season having the heralded films of this paradigm consistently hitting screens, here’s the latest one with more exceptional constituents. Titled ‘Clap – The Sound of Success’ starring Aadhi in lead role was launched this morning (12-06-2019) followed by shooting.
Director Prithvi Aditya says, “Yes, we are coming across many sports based films and it’s really nice to see that the contemporary filmmakers are bringing new and different dimensions through this genre breaking the stereotypical elements. In the same manner, “CLAP” will also have its own exceptional premise. Aadhi sir looks as a perfect epitome of an athlete, but he took additional efforts in preparing for this role. Akansha Singh, who has shot to fame for her admirable performances in Telugu movies like Malli Rava and many TV shows including Star Plus will be seen playing the title role. Krisha Kurup (Goli Soda 2, Angelina fame) is also playing the other lead role in this film playing the role of an athlete. Soon after signing the film, she took special personal interest in preparing for the role and underwent 2-3 months of training. Nasser sir will be essaying the role of antagonist while Mime Gopi has a pivotal role. Munishkanth will appear throughout the film having scope for both humour and performances too. Prakash Raj sir is essaying a substantial role in this film and the major plot is driven by his character.”
On having Maestro Ilayaraja compose music, he says, “Our entire film crew is blessed to have Isaignani Ilayaraja sir onboard. The reason why we desperately wanted him for this film is because it has an ‘emotional’ premise although it’s based on sports drama. Moreover, he is the only magician, who can bring life to such emotions with his Midas-touch. The film has 5 songs that involve emotional and motivating tracks and the composing will soon commence.”
Praveen Kumar, whose upcoming film ‘Jiivi’ is scheduled for month end release is handling cinematography for “Clap” and he is already high on fame for his camera works in “Mannin Maindhargal’, which had its huge spotlighting attraction in Star Sports. The others in the technical crew include Ragul (Editor) and Vairabalan (Art). To be simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu, the film is produced by I B Karthikeyan of BIG PRINT PICTURES and co- produced by P. Prabha Prem of PMM FILMS and G. Manoj & G.
