FICUS bags the US rights of Endhiran and Robo


Leader in overseas distribution FICUS acquired the USA theatrical rights Telugu and Tamil versions of Superstar Rajanikanth's “Robo/Endhiran”. Special thanks to Kalanidhi Maran and Hansraj Saxena of Sun Pictures for giving us this opportunity to work on prestigious project Endhiran.

This Shankar's futuristic film ‘Endhiran: The Robot’ will be a real science-fiction in Tamil/Telugu after many decades. It is also going to be the biggest INDIAN film ever made not just in terms of the money spent on production but also on the line up cast and crew assembled for the film. It stars Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles. Other major stars in the film include Danny Denzongpa, Santhanam and Kalabavan Mani.

The technical crew of ‘Endhiran’ is hand picked by Shankar from all over the world comprising the best of the world.

The script is by late Sujatha, Shankar and Balakumaran. Yuen Woo Ping who designed action scenes for films like The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The Forbidden Kingdom is the stunt co-co-ordinator for ‘Endhiran’. Also our own Peter Hein has done a great job.

Stan Winston Studios which handled visual effects for iconic films like Aliens, Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park took care of the animatronics in the film. Shankar has used animatronics technology, seen in Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park trilogy for ‘Endhiran’.

The spectacular effects are made real by the superior combination lighting cinematography of Rathnavelu. Editing is by Anthony and the dance choreography for ‘Endhiran’ is by Raju Sundaram and Claudia Bruckmann.

Industrial Light & Magic that handled the special effects for films like Avatar, Star Wars, and Titanic worked on visual and special effects. Buzz says about 40 per cent of the budget was spent on the special effects.

And for the music there is no comparison. The audio of ‘Endhiran’ was officially released on July 31. The best thing about the songs of ‘Endhiran’ is that they are A Rajini-Rahman numbers. In his earlier films for Rajini, ARR stayed away from his style of music and blended with the Super Star image more. But in ‘Endhiran’ both high values are independent yet complementing each other.

Endhiran/Robot all set to make a mark in world cinema we would like to specially thank Mr.Pulla Rao who has been very instrumental for getting this project to us.
