A little more wait for Rajnikanth‘s magnus opus Kochadaiiyaan, the futuristic fantasy film’s release directed by Rajnikanth‘s daughter Soundarya has been shifted two weeks after its previously announced date.
The film was all set to release on May 09, 2014, but due to some technical problems faced by the team the date for the worldwide release of this mega movie has been finalised on May 23, 2014.
Kochadaiiyaan features a unique visual of photorealistic performance capture technology for the very first time in India. The movie is said to be released in six Indian language versions of Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Marathi, Bhojpuri and Punjabi, simultaneously in 2D and 3D in over six thousand screens worldwide.
Although the entire unit was optimistically gearing up for a May 09, 2014 release, due to some unexpected technical issues, this mammoth worldwide release is now May 23, 2014. The fans frenzy for Rajnikanth‘s Kochadaiiyaan has begun months in advance and the wait is now over.
Rajnikanth appeared on twitter for the very first time on May 05, 2014 and he instantly broke the record for the very first day followers by any Indian movie star by getting over 2.5 lakhs followers on the very first day itself.
Kochadaiiyaan is an epic dramatization of good versus evil starring South Indian megastar Rajinikanth in a double role in a larger than life depiction. Also starring in the grand production is leading lady Deepika Padukone together with South India’s leading stars R. Sharath Kumar, Nazar, Aadi, Shobana and Rukmini.
Providing the musical score is Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman, whose list of credits includes a BAFTA, Golden Globe and Academy Awards.
Kochadaiiyaan was shot extensively at Pinewood Studios in the UK with a team of world-class technical experts including the London based Centroid Studios, a state-of-the-art facility for Full Body Motion Capture, which has worked on various Hollywood productions including the recent Brad Pitt starrer World War Z as well as Pirates Of The Caribbean, Ironman 2 and Harry Potter.
A team of technical experts from South India and China have worked on this technology, with the best production facilities in London, for the overall completion of the project.
