Superstar Rajnikanth’s ‘Kochadaiyaan’ is a hi-tech 3D film with Photorealistic Motion Capture Technology alsocalled Performance Capturing Technology. This is a first of its kind being produced in India. It is worth mentioning that the all-time box-office hit ‘AVATAR’ directed by James Cameroon and ‘The Adventures of TINTIN’ directed by Steven Spielberg, have been produced with the same Performance Capturing Technology in Hollywood.
The film is an EROS presentation and is produced by Mediaone Global Entertainment Limited. Starring India’s admired Superstar Rajnikanth in a triple role and Bollywood leading actress Deepika Padukone amongst a host of other acclaimed actors, ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ is all set to deliver ground breaking technology, taking 3D films a step further in India. ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ will take audiences on a musical adventurous journey through larger than life battle sequences, intricate period detail and real life actors modelled in the animated world of historic India.
Using Motion Capture Technology is the key, enabaling the filmmakers to create photorealistic models and maintain the recognised mannerisms and body language of Rajnikanth as well as the rest of the cast including Deepika Padukone, Sarath Kumar, Jackie Shroff, Nasser, Shobana, Aadhi and Rukmani. Kochadaiiyaan is a historical magnum opus starring Superstar Rajinikanth, which narrates a story of powerful deception, portraying Rana, a passionate, fierce and ruthless warrior, who returns to his homeland with a veiled agenda, to avenge the death of his father Kochadaiiyaan, who was unjustly put to death by the reigning king of Kotaipattinam. The conflict of emotions and the blood battle that arises along the treacherous path down love and war, that Rana takes, to fulfill his destiny is the main plot of this story.
