Yuvan Shankar Raja has done it again – this time, he’s rendered music for the 2007 version of Billa. Billa is a film directed by Vishnuvardhan, and is a remake of the blockbuster 1980 film, Billa, which in itself is a remake of the 1978 Bollywood blockbuster Don. The 2007 film Billa meanwhile borrows its key theme from the 2006 re-vamped Don starring Shahrukh Khan. The film is set to be released in India on December 14, 2007 and is set to be simultaneously released internationally.
The film stars Ajith Kumar, Nayanthara, Prabhu Ganesan, Rahman, Namitha and Rose Dawn in a guest appearance. 80 percent of the movie was shot in Malaysia (as was the remake of Don), and was filmed around the tropical Langkawi island as well as the towering Petronas Twin Towers and the Jalan Masjid India area, which is the ‘little India’ of Kuala Lumpur.The movie includes five songs such as My Name Is Billa, Naan Meendum, Vethalaya Potaendi, Sei Yethavathu, Seval Kodi, and Billa Theme Music. I loved the Billa Theme Music, Naan Meendum and My Name is Billa (which is a remixed version of the song from the original 1980 film Billa.) Can’t wait to see the movie now!
