Recently director Kannan has to deny news about Vandhaan Vendraan being the remake of the Bollywood romcom I Hate Luv Storys. Kannan said it's his original story and that he's not inspired by any other sources. This must have been because Kannan's earlier film Kanden Kadhalai with Bharath and Tamannah in the lead was indeed the remake of the hit Bollywood movie Jab We Met.

Jiiva plays a professional boxer, who falls in love with an industrialist’s daughter, Tapasee. Tapasee's character is that of an American return girl whose values are rooted in Indian tradition. This is Tapasee's film after her hugely popular role as Irene for the national award winning Aadukalam.

Vandhaan Vendraan is produced by K.Seenivasan for the banner Vasan Visual Ventures. The music is scored by Thamman and lyrics are by Thamarai, Madhan Karky and Yughabharathy. The movie was shot in and around India and abroad with 70% of the shoot schedules having been held in Mumbai. The song sequences were shot in Goa and Turkey.

Kannan is known to direct sensible commercial entertainers with his earlier films. Vandhaan Vendraan's stills look promising and the story line, as revealed by him partly, has potential to be a decent entertainer if it's spruced up in the hands of Kannan.

Firstly, the film stars Jiiva, a reliable name among Tamil actors to look for quality entertainers. And it is directed by Kannan, a former associate of Mani Ratnam, who has built an image for himself with movies like 'Jayamkondan' and 'Kanden Kadhalai'.

Finally, this is the second film in Tamil for Tapsee, the 'Vellavi vechi velutha...' Punjabi girl, who won over the hearts of Tamil masses by beautifully playing the role of an Anglo Indian girl in Dhanush-starrer 'Aadukalam'.

Produced by K S Srinivasan of Vasan Visual Ventures, the man behind 'Naan Kadavul' and 'Boss Engira Baskaran', 'Vandhaan Vendraan' has music by Thaman, whose music is also said to be one of the highlights of the film.

Jiiva , who plays a boxer in the movie, says, "the script is simply amazing and has everything in it to impress the audience. All credits go to Kannan for beautifully conceiving and making the film. It is an entertainer with a difference."

He adds: "It is a interesting role, that of a professional boxer that I play in the movie. And, I underwent rigorous training for this. Also, with Santhanam around, there is no dearth of comedy".

For 'Vandhaan Vendraan', Kannan shot for almost 22 days in Mumbai's sensitive areas like the Gateway of India and Taj Hotel. "We were refused permission initially, as security was high in these areas where the terror attack of 2008 happened. But my script was conceived four years back, even before the incident, and I went out of my way to convince them."

Kannan also clears the air by saying that 'Vandhan Vendran' is not a remake, but based on an original script penned by him. "My maiden film Jayamkondan too is not inspired by any other movie. Only my second venture Kanden Kadhalai is the Tamil adaptation of Bollywood hit Jab We Met," says the former associate of Mani Ratnam.

He adds: "Though Jiiva is playing a boxer, it is just his profession in the movie and it doesn't have any crucial importance. The screenplay will be so different and I am hopeful that film-buffs would love watching Vandhaan Vendraan."
