Vikram has not had a great outing in the recent years. His last two movies Rajapattai and Thaandavam miserably failed at the Box Office. On the other end, Jeeva tasted decent success with movies like Mugamoodi and was part of blockbuster Nanban, which was a multi-starrer film.
Now, the duo, for the first time, are working together in David directed by Bejoy Nambiar. The film is simultaneously made in Hindi with a slightly different cast. Bollywood actor Vinay Virmani has stepped into the shoes of Jeeva in the Hindi version.
Now David sports a huge team, rich in acting, music, and cinematography to mention a few. Bejoy Nambiar’s fresh experimentation will be the highlight, as the film releases with a slight alternate version in Hindi. This will also be one of the fastest films by our Chiyaan Vikram and Jiiva, according to Kollywood gossip. Not to forget the array of music directors, a total of eight different artists have their hand in it and already being called as a “Trend setter of all sorts”. The trailer has already given a glimpse of what’s in the store, so let’s take a brief look at what the movie is:
Movie is set across different time zones (1999 & 2010) and locations (Mumbai & Goa). Jiiva plays the aspiring guitarist raised in a devout Christian family. He looks like a million bucks and charms in the first half with his chirpy attitude. His desire comes with hurdles owing to his family economic woes. He detests his father’s (Nasser) over pious nature and exceeding social conscience, and has big plans of becoming a renowned Guitarist. A local political wing alleges the priest on forcing religion conversion and begrimes the family. Struck in shame and pain, the plot evolves slowly around David and his family. The follow up of incidents provokes young and suave David to take a step that would change his life forever. Lara Dutta makes a special appearance in this side of story as well.
The other David’s character is etched as the freaky fisherman in Goa portrayed by Vikram. He essays a hopeless guy who boozes all day and night broods over his problems, only venting it out to Frenny (Tabu). Falling heads over heels for the fairy-tale kind of girl Roma, David jeopardizes his relationship with Roma as she is already engaged with his best friend. He finds solace by voicing his complications to his illusionary dad and Massage owner Tabu. The crux of the story forms by what he does to his love and friend. Watch out to find what happens to both the Davids!
