Mani Rathnam, who gave us movies of the caliber Dil Se, Kannathil Muthamittal, Guru, Raavan, Bombay is going to enchant us with a new film: Kadal.
Rathnam is the Terrence Malick of Indian cinema. He is political, he is lyrical. He creates not just cinema, but paintings, indelible images, which will stay in your memory forever. His collaboration with the worldwide renowned composer A R Rahman goes back to 1994 when they worked together on Thiruda Thiruda, which was followed by Bombay in 1995 and since then they have created movie magic together.

The first look of Mani Ratnam’s Kadal is out on internet. Several posters of the film set against the sea are doing rounds on the net.
Now, we are bringing you one of the posters, which shows a boy and a woman playing on the beach side. The first look clearly indicates that the story of Kadal, as the title suggests, is set at the backdrop of a sea.
