by Rinku Gupta

Editors are  the first audience or critic of movies since they happen to be the first to get a clear picture of how a  film is shaping up,  as they watch raw footage. Juggling several projects, Viswasam  Editor Antony  Ruben feels theres something special about Ajith Kumar’s film which is releasing on January 10th. 

“More than claiming this to be a mass movie, Viswasam is a beautiful family entertainer for the festive season. It has all elements to serve as a sumptuous feast which everyone will enjoy. It’s not just going to be mass and action elements, but I  believe, overall Viswasam will be a delightful experience for entire family audiences.”  says Ruben.

But working on the film was a challenging experience for him. He explains,  “The story goes through lots of raciness and  action and added to that, several emotional phase. All these accordingly demanded certain transitions at the correct points which is something I had to work on. "

Cutting the final trailer which has created such a huge buzz, was quite a task,thanks to the huge expectation of fans from  the film. That required a balancing act from him, " Bringing out the final version trailer was much more challenging! Thats because the intention was to balance the expectations of fans, without  raising it high nor keeping itt low. To hit the right note, I had to work on lots of versions , incorporatiing suggestions from director Siva and the producers. We are now happy as a team that we have delivered it according to the taste of audiences!”

So what’s his favourite part in the film? “The action sequences are fantastically done, especially the rain fight followed by another action block in the  second half, where Ajith sir would bash the opponents with fists and in -between would utter some mass lines!"

Scheduled for worldwide release on January 10, Viswasam is directed by Siva and is produced by Sathya Jyothi Films.
