Sathyajothi Films is one of the oldest and most respected production houses in Kollywood. From its first independent production ‘Moondram Pirai’ in 1982 the banner has been consistently giving the audiences only clean entertaining family films like ‘Moondram Pirai’, ‘Kizhaku Vasal’,
‘Idhayam’, ‘Parthiban Kanavu’, ‘Em Magan’. The most recent one to come out of this banner was ‘Jayam Kondaan’.

After the success of ‘Jayam Kondaan’, Sathyajothi Films is now ready with ‘Baana Kaathadi’. The movie was launched in May last year and is now complete and ready for release.

‘Baana Kaathadi’ is a unique film as it brings together a few third generation young talents in the business of films. This film is produced by Senthil Thyagarajan and T. Arjun, the next generation from T.G Thyagarajan household. Similarly it introduces Atharva who is the son of actor Murali. And then there is Yuvan Shankar Raja another new generation doing the music.

‘Baana Kaathadi’ is a different film and the plot is new to south Indian cinema. It’s about two young kite fliers, their life and their environment. The plot shows that Tamil cinema is maturing fast to handle off beat plots.

The film is written and directed by Badri Venkatesh who is a product of Tamil Nadu Film Institute. He was also a professor at the institute. He knows his job well and has already got a National award for a short film ‘Vidiyalai Nokki’.

The film was shot in Chennai, Gujarat and Thailand. Important scenes were filmed in Gujarat where the International Kite Festival is held every year. First time in Kollywood history a song and scenes were shot with the real crowd at the Kite Festival.

Adharva, son of actor Murali debuts in the film. Interestingly it was Sathyajothi Films that gave Murali one of biggest breakthrough films in his career. Murali’s hugely successful film ‘Idhayam’ was produced by the same company. Samantha debuts as the heroine. Samantha is the girl 
who played Trisha’s role in the Telugu version of ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaya’. Even in Tamil she played a cameo as the assistant to Silambarasan who later becomes the heroine of his film. Both the new comers have generated a lot of expectations. Prasanna is playing an important role.
Karunaas is in charge of the comedy.

Baana Kaathadi's music is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The music album features 5 songs and interestingly 4 of them are solo numbers. Two are written by Na. Muthukumar. Vaali, Snehan and Gangai Amaran have written one song each.

However the film will not feature the remix of the ‘Aathadi Paavadai’ from Murali’s debut film Poovilangu. Earlier there was a talk in the media of this re-mix featuring in the film. The audio was released on April 30 at Sathyam Cinemas.

Richard M Nathan who is an expert in shooting scenes amidst crowd realistically is the cameraman of this film. You must have seen the expertise of Richard Nathan in the recent trend setting ‘Angadi Theru. Rembon is the art director and Suresh Urs takes care of editing.

‘Baana Kaathadi’ is believed to be a realistic romantic film in which the highlight is supposed to be its climax. It is hitting the screens in May.
