Actor K Manikandan ventured into Kollywood through an uncredited role in Pizza II: Villa. He followed it with a bunch of supporting roles in India Pakistan, Indru Netru Naalai, Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum, and 8 Thottakkal. It was his supporting role in Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Vedha that gave him the much necessary breakthrough he was after. The actor was last seen on screens in the hyperlink drama Sila Nerangalil Sila Manidhargal which hit the theaters under the direction of film maker Vishal Venkat with actor Ashok Selvan in the lead. The project did not bring in footfalls to the theaters. As a result, it had a poor box office collection. But the actor has now put that behind him, and is gearing up for the release of his upcoming entertainer titled Good Night. Debutant story teller Vinayak Chandrasekaran has penned and directed the entertainer. The movie which went on floors last year with a small pooja ceremony is now wrapped, and is in the post production stage shaping up for release.
The production house has now unveiled the teaser of the entertainer on social media. Director Pa Ranjith has shared the teaser. Taking to his official twitter handle, the director shared the teaser of Good Night, and wrote, “Get into the world of Good Night with such an interesting premise. Watch the teaser. Wishing the team great success! A Sean Roldan musical!” Here is the post made by the story teller.

Over one-minute teaser cut opens to a team meeting with actor Bagavathi Perumal saying, “After this stage, we should not receive any escalation from clients’ end.” The meeting is interrupted by actor Manikandan’s snoring. The scene cuts to actor Ramesh Thilak telling, “He is the reason for my marriage with Maha. He is my brother-in-law. My Wife’s younger brother.” Then we get a few glimpses of romantic shots between Manikandan and Meetha Ragunath. We see the actor telling his family about his love, and cries over how his snoring habit has ruptured it. His mother comforts him in a funny manner saying, “Just for the name Mohan, you would get 1000’s of women.” The teaser ends with a quip of Manikandan snoring loudly, his dog nearby wakes up and runs to the other room.
Earlier speaking to a leading media house about the film, story teller Vinayak Chandrasekaran said, “Good Night is set in the backdrop of Chennai. Snoring is the core theme of the drama. What are the consequences of snoring, the type of issues snoring leads to in a relationship, and how a snorer overcomes snoring. We have tried to present the element in a humorous way. But that is not just it, the film will talk about modern life, and how we as humans struggle to cope with it. A wide range of human emotions will be explored. We have tried our best to avoid comedy that offends the feelings of others. I am confident the audience will have an amazing experience watching it.” Debutant director Vinayak Chandrasekaran is a former assistant of director Sam Anton. So, there are high expectations for his debut movie. The production house is eyeing to bring the flick to the theaters for summer holidays this season. The trailer of the flick is expected to be launched soon.
Apart from actor K Manikandan, Good Night has actress Meetha Ragunath of Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee fame depicting the female lead role. The casting division of the flick has actors Ramesh Thilak, Balaji Shakthivel, and Bagavathi Perumal portraying various other supporting roles. Music director Sean Roldan will be composing music for the venture. Cinematographer Jayanth Sethu Mathavan has been behind camera for the project. Editor Bharath Vikraman has been brought on board to edit the movie. Art director Srikanth Gopal has erected sets for the movie. The venture is produced by Nazerath Pasilian and Mahesh Raj Pasilian under the banner label Million Dollar Studios along with Yuvaraj Ganesan for production house MRP entertainment.
