Ishtam to deal with the lives of software professionals
September 24, 2015
The upcoming film Ishtam marks the debut as heroine in Tamil films for Nisha Aggarwal. Younger sister of Kajal Aggarwal, Nisha debuts in the film opposite Vimal of Pasanga and Kalavaani fame. The film is the Tamil remake of the Telugu super-hit film Ae Maindhi Ee Vela directed by Sampath Nandhi.
Prem Nishar, who assisted director Chakri Taloti during the making of the Kamal-starrer Unnaipol Oruvan, debuts as director with this film which is cinematographed by Sekar Joseph, who has worked in films like Chandramukhi. Music is taken care of by Thaman while dance sequences are choreographed by Kanlyan.
Balaji Real Media, which produced Dhanush-starrer Uthamaputhiran, is producing Ishtam which reportedly deals with how the software professionals’ working culture changes their lifestyles altogether. For the first time, Vimal moves to a city-based subject and is paired opposite debutant Nisha. Santhanam is also there to provide comic relief.
The pretty-looking Nisha, who is as beautiful as her famous sister, has put in a very good performance, says Prem. “As Nisha played the heroine’s role in the Telugu version, we have cast her in the Tamil version too. She has also performed some intimate scenes with Vimal in the film, which won’t be bordering on obscenity,” concludes Prem.
