Mani Ratnam's upcoming film starring Gautam (yesteryear actor Karthik's son) and Tulasi (the younger daughter of Radha) has been titled as Kadali in Telugu. The film's Tamil title is Kadal, which means 'The Sea'. The film is set in the backdrop of a fishing village and most part of the film has been shot in a village near Tuticorin and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Arvind Swamy, Arjun and Lakshmi Manchu are playing vital roles in this love story. A R Rahman is composing the music and Rajiv Menon is the cinematographer. There's a lot of buzz surrounding this film since Mani Ratnam is making a love story which is set in the rural milieu for the first time in 10 years - the last being Madhavan, Simran starrer Amrutha back in 2002. In recent years, most of his films like Raavan, Yuva and to an extent even Guru didn't click at box office.
