Ilayathalapathy Vijay is a magic Man says cinematographer Sukumar.

Ilayathalapathy Vijay

It is a pride moment to work with Ilayathalapathy Vijay sir in Bairavaa. I worked as an assistant cameraman in Azhagiya Tamil Magan which was also directed by Bharathan and I feel lucky to work with Vijay-Bharathan combination again. We have added more essence to fights and songs which usually comes in Vijay film. When comes to cinematography department, it will be very lively and the visuals will be favorite for the fans. Ilayathalapathy is a magic man as he performs better than assistant choreographer in a single take just by watching them. When comes to stunts, he supports multiple cameras surrounding himself and he stands in the marked place perfectly. He is the number one in showing complete dedication and maintaining timings. He talks with co-artists and technicans with great respect, talks without hurting others, talks with childern and he try to keep the atmosphere happy. I am very happy for working with Vijay sir. When Vijay sir wishes everyone in the morning, it provides a boost for us and provide energy to work throughout the day and thus remove our nervousness. Santosh Sivan Sir is the senior most cinematographer and we all are big fan of him. Santosh Sivan says Vijay as Puli and similarly I say him as Magic man as he performs in the frame in a magical manner like a tiger but once he finishes the shoot, he comes back to the normal condition. It’s difficult to shoot with Vijay sir in real locations because of presence of his fans. Koyambedu bus stand set is constructed in Prasad lab for an important sequence. We have constructed the sets in a realistic  manner and Prabhakar has made the sets more lively.I worked with Anal Arasu master in my first film. He became master before I became cameraman. We were friends before we started our career. We joined again in Vijay sir’s film after Laadam ,Kumki,Mynaa and Thadaiayaara Thaaka. Thadaiyara Thaaka got great acclaim for action scenes. Dinesh master choreographs the songs in the film. The songs were shot in a marriage hall,in Switzerland,in sets.All the songs were different and I hope that Manjal Megam will be the best song in this year. There is a tiruvizha song in the film, which was also shot in set. In my all films, everything from locations to costumes will be different. My interference will be there in costumes and colours. I decided that colours should match the story and me, art director and director decided the colours and costumes and Sathya has did an excellent job in designing our needs. I already worked with Sathya in Maan Karate and he has did an incredible job in the song “Daarling Dambaku”. He got his chance after designing costumes for Vijay  in a song in Theri. Praveen.K.L is the top editor and he worked in superstar’s film recently. He did a splendid job in Thadaiyara Thaka and he can merge any number of frames together in a crisp way. Everyone in our team are good humans and director gave huge comfort to me. This production house had produced MGR sir’s film and I thank for providing me opportunity to work in this company , which is because of Ravi sir and Kumar sir. Overall, I am very happy in working in this company.
