surya in the tamil movie Anjaan

Santosh Sivan says that superstar Suriya's Tamil movie "Anjaan" shouldn't be tagged as a regional film because a large part of the dialogues are in Hindi and the story is set in the city.

Explaining the lingual dichotomy of "Anjaan", the film's cinematographer Sivan said: "It's a Mumbai-based subject and a large part of the dialogues are in Hindi. These haven't been dubbed into Tamil, although it's a Tamil film."

"It is not a regional film. Its characters are Mumbai-based. It's a very different kind of modern gangster film. The characters speak in Hindi. And there is an overlapping voiceover in Tamil for Suriya's core fan base, so that the flavour of Hindi language spoken by the characters is not lost in translation," he added.

Interestingly the cast includes Bollywood actors like Manoj Bajpayee, Vidyut Jamwal, Chetan Hansraj, Rajpal Yadav and Dalip Tahil. Actress Chitrangada Singh also makes a special appearance in the movie that came out Friday.
