Vellitherai (2008) (English: Silver Screen) is a Drama Tamil film directed by debutant Viji, a Tamil Television actress. The film stars Prithviraj, as an assistant director hoping to make it big and Gopika, his love interest in the lead roles. Prakash Raj, the producer of the movie, also plays a prominent role in the movie. Shooting had taken place in India, Indonesia, and Australia. The film's score and soundtrack, are composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar, with many songs altered from the original. It is a remake of Rosshan Andrrews's Udayananu Tharam, the Malayalam film, which was a Mohanlal starrer. Popular stars like Jayam Ravi and Trisha Krishnan play cameos as themselves in the film.
Saravanan(Prithviraj) is an assistant director who feels he has written a script that only he, as a director, can do justice to. Kanniah (Prakashraj), who has been looking for a break as an actor for even longer than Saravanan, becomes Saravanan's roommate. When Saravanan goes to Hyderabad, Kanniah copies Saravanan's script and pitches it a producer, under the condition that he has to play the hero in the film. Impressed by the script, the producer agrees to the condition. The movie turns Kanniah, now rechristened Dilipkanth, into a star. Saravanan does not give up and creates another story. However, he finds out that he can't make his film unless Dilipkanth plays the hero. The last leg of the movie seems to have borrowed heavily from the hollywood production, Bowfinger
