UTV Motion Pictures' Mugamoodi directed by Mysskin has been cleared by the Regional Censors in Chennai with an U certificate. The movie stars Jiiva, Pooja Hegde and Narain in the lead roles. With just a week left for its release, the first superhero flick of Tamil cinema, has music by K.
On the movie, Mysskin says, 'It was a lingering dream of mine to make a film based on the comics that I have read in my childhood. Only after my fourth film could I realise my dream.'
'If you have read superhero comics, you will know what happens between one frame and another. For example, in one frame you will see a man with a knife and in another, a man gets stabbed. You may not see the man stabbing the other guy. I felt it was the best way of making a film.'
'The Mugamoodi is something to show when a normal man becomes a superhero. While shooting the film, I was telling my crew that in Hollywood films, behind a superhero there will always be a skyscraper, but when I compose a scene for my superhero, I can see only a neem tree.
'The first thing I told Jiiva when I met him was that he had to take training in martial arts. He laughed and said that he had been undergoing martial arts training for the last eight years'
