Dec 06, 2006The trend of remixing old hit songs – apart from cribbing the plot from old movies – is catching up in Kollywood. Manmadan’s ‘ennasai maidiliye’ set an example in this genre and many movies followed suit. In line with the trend, Vijay starrer Pokkiri, which is being directed by Prabhu Deva will have the classic oldie song ‘Vasantha Mullai’ from the movie Sarangadara – seasoned to suit the present generation.
Pokkiri will have the first stanza of Vasantha Mullai blended into another song. However, Vijay stated that the song has not been remixed and would appear as it was in the movie – but limited to two lines. The shoots of the song have been carried out recently in Chennai in areas such as film city and racecourse.
Though Prabhu Deva is renowned for his dancing talents, seems like he will not render choreography for Pokkiri. He will limit himself to direction and the task of choreography has been distributed among various dance masters. Vijay, Asin, and Sriman were seen dancing to the steps of Dinesh for the Vasantha Mullai song. Mani Sharma scores music for Pokkiri.
