Samuthirakani’s assistant to direct Thalakonam 
K. Padmaraj, who worked under actor-director Samuthirakani in a few films as assistant director, turns director with a film titled Thalakkonam.
The film, to be produced by Thirumalai Sivam on behalf of his banner SJS International, would have the script penned by Padmaraj himself.

Popular male model Jitesh, the newcomer who is debuting as hero, is paired opposite Riya (alias) Nakshatra in the film. Others in the cast Kota Srinivasa Rao, Feroze Khan, 'Ganja' Karuppu, Pandu, Shanmugasundaram, Nambiraj, Bala and Abinayasree. Billed as a suspense thriller, the film has music by the duo of Subash-Jawahar and has lyrics penned by lyricist-turned actor Paa Vijay.

The audio of the film was launched some time back at the Abirami Mega Mall in the city. 'Abirami' Ramanathan presided over the function and released the audio cassettes and CDs of the film which were accepted by Namitha, the 'sexy bomb' who once ruled the roost in Kollywood.

Speaking on the occasion, Namitha said "All films – irrespective of whether they are small-budget films or big-budget films – have only one rout to success, which is to entertain the audience and make them feel satisfactory as they emerge from the cinema halls after watching the film. Success lies in the hands of the viewers; I'm sure the film would court success in a big way and I wish the crew all the success."
Others who took part in the event included P.L. Thenappan, secretary of the Tamil Film Producers' Council, directors Perarasu and Bharathan and actor 'Ganja' Karuppu.
