Vishal Krishna Enemy, the high-profile Tamil actioner which opens this Diwali on November 5 features two of Tamil Nadu’s most high-profile star-actors as antagonists.
Vishal Krishna says he is relieved that the film is finally making it into movie theatres. “Enemy is not the right fit for the home medium. With due respects , I feel the mood and the space of the two mediums are different. What is suited to the OTT platform is not correct for the big screen and vice versa.”
Vishal Krishna feels a lot of the nuances in the intricate stunts between Arya and Vishal would be lost on the OTT. “Enemy has the kind of action never seen before. People ask, was it difficult for Arya and me to fight one another when we are such close friends in real life? The answer is , no. It was not difficult at all. In fact being friends we collaborated over the fights like choreographed dancing.”
Vishal Krishna feels fights like the ones in Enemy have not been seen by Indian audiences. “Our action is unique. And arresting. Today , the stunts in Indian cinema have to compete with international projects. Enemy is competing with The Last Duel and Shang-chi & The Legend Of Ten Rings. One slip-up and our standards are exposed.”
