Sherlock - Ajith!

On the day of Asal’s release, we have more definitive information about the 50th film of Ajith Kumar. As reported earlier, the milestone movie will be directed by Gautham Menon, who is at present busy with the final round work of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa.

With VTV set to release this month, both Gautham and Ajith are expected to be free of all commitments to start work together. The scripting part of the flick is still in progress. It is being said that Gautham has taken the basic plot of the film from a sensational criminal case in 1980 and that Ajith will be playing an investigating officer. Whether it is regular cop role or something more sophisticated along the lines of CBI or even Sherlock Holmes is open to speculation. Anyway, it will surely be the first time in his career that Ajith will don a full fledged detective role and that itself will give all his fans a lot to look forward to from this movie. With so much decided, one would have expected the film to have been christened by now. But that is not the case. Gautham is yet to decide on a title.

Another high point of the movie will be its music, which will be scored once again by A.R. Rahman. The Gautham-Rahman team has already proved its worth in glowing terms with the VTV album that is taking the charts by storm. The film is expected to go on floors by April.
