7am Arivu to highlight upon Tamil tradition?

The story of ‘7am Arivu’, Suriya’s forthcoming film directed by A R Murugadoss, is said to be based on a time machine, that is invented by a young scientist, played by Shruthi Haasan.
“The time machine reveals various hidden truths about ancient Tamil history and tradition, even as a powerful gang is chasing the invention to snatch it away. How their attempts are thwarted (by Suriya) and how he makes the world understand and appreciate the richness of Tamil culture is what the film about,” say sources.

Produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Red Giant Movies, Suriya plays three different roles in this film, that of an aggressive monk, a scientist and a circus artist.

Music has been scored by Harris Jayaraj, who gave super hits for Suriya-Murugadoss’ earlier venture ‘Ghajini’. Grand plans are being made for the audio launch function, where Suriya is expected to perform some tricks that he was trained in for his performance as a circus artist in the film.

Suriya and a super machine

When there are many theories doing rounds about the storyline of ‘7am Arivu’, we have something exclusive about the Suriya-starrer directed by A R Murugadoss, which is interesting too.If sources in the unit are to be believed, the film revolves around a ‘super machine’, which is brought to India by the baddie, a character played by Vietnamese Johnny Tri Nguyen.

“The machine starts giving some problems to Suriya and Shruthi Haasan. From then on, a suspense-filled journey gets a kickstart which will take the audience to never seen before places,” sources maintain.

Produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Red Giant Movies, ‘7am Arivu’ has music by Harris Jayaraj.

Who will be Suriya’s heroine?

Suriya, undoubtedly is Kollywood’s number one hero at the moment. He has just completed the shoot of his AR Murgadoss directed 7am Arivu, in which Sruthi Haasan is his heroine.Suriya will start work for his next film Maatran directed by KV Anand and produced by AGS. The shoot of the film will start by the first week of June.Now the big question being asked is: “Who will be the lucky girl to be featured opposite Suriya?”It is a million dollar question and a lot of heroines from all over the country have thrown in their hat.

Remember being Suriya’s heroine you get a fantastic reach and fame. Ask Tamannaah who after being paired with Suriya in KV Anand’s Ayan reached dizzy heights.

Similarly Shruthi Haasan is all set to storm K’wood once 7am Arivu releases.

As of now as per the Kollywood grapevine, those who have been selected in the preliminary list are- Deepika Padukone, Kajal Agarwal, Taapsee and Samantha.

Deepika has asked for a very high salary, and negotiations are going on.

However the heroine with a realistic chance of grabbing the role is Kajal Aggarwal, who has emerged as the front runner. The Maghadheera girl has a reach in Andhra where Suriya has an audience and will be a star in Bollywood after doing Hindi Singam with Ajay Devgan. The only thing going against her is her not so impressive progress card (hit movie) in Tamil cinema.

The others are also trying to get this coveted role opposite the hot and happening Suriya.

Suriya is a monk

One of the roles Suriya playing in ‘7am Arivu’ is that of a Buddhist Monk. The other two characters are a scientist and a circus artist. The film will create ripples once it hits the screens.These are the latest three things we hear about the multicrore-multilingual venture, directed by A R Murugadoss and produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Red Giant Movies.
“The movie, with enough evidence, will reveal some secrets about the origination of Kung Fu and other martial arts. It will also talk about ancient relationship between India and China,” say sources.

With Shruthi Haasan playing the heroine, ‘7am Arivu’ is said to be a scintillating thriller which will travel between the present era and Pallava period. “Suriya has given his heart and soul to the film,” sources add.
