Cast: T.R. Silambarasan (Simbu), Bharath, Anushka Shetty, Sneha Ullal, Sonia Agarwal, Prakash Raj, Vega, Santhanam, Saranya Ponvannan

Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Release Date: April 8th 2011

Plot: A cable operator (Simbu) – A sex worker (Anushka) – A rock star (Bharath) – A wanted Muslim (Prakash Raj) – A bereft widow (Saranya Ponvannan); The story revolves around the coming together of these five characters (representing the five natural elements of the world) on an ill-fated day that changes each one’s life.

Expectations: Vaanam has aroused high expectations, what with being the remake of 2010 Telugu film, Vedam, apart from it’s highly talented and versatile cast.  Vaanam is Simbu’s first movie after VTV, which was one of last year’s biggest hits. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s mellifluous music has added to the extensive pre-release hype. At this point, I think I should wish director Krish luck because he seems to have a very strong script with Vaanam and we will have to wait to find out if he has handled it well.
