Actor Karthi was last seen in the film Dev which sank without notice but his previous flick Kadaikutty Singam which hit the screens last year under the directorial of Pandiraj went on to be become one of the highest grosser flicks of the actor. The actor has quickly moved on to his next project and is currently busy shooting for his yet to be titled film directed by Dhrishyam fame director Jeethu Joseph in which the actor will be sharing the screen space with his sister in law Jyotika for the first time in his career.
The actor who is strategizing to return to his winning zone is now gearing up for the release of his next action crime thriller flick Kaithi. The flick is directed by film maker Lokesh Kanagaraj of Managaram fame and is produced by S. R. Prabhu under his home banner Dream Warrior Pictures. The film is currently thriving vigorously in the post production stage. We had reported earlier that the teaser of the film will be released on 30th of May. As reported the production house has released the teaser of the film and actor Karthi looks gritty in it.
A few seconds cut gives us the glimpse of the blood ravenous revenge game where the cops and criminals go after a single man who happens to an escaped fugitive played by actor Karthi. From the teaser we get to learn that the escaped fugitive is a man of colossal calmness as he enjoys every bit of his chicken biriyani with a broken cuff still dangling in his hand, while his enemies are closing in on him. As a strategic move the production house has decided to screen the teaser of Kaithi in the theaters that will be screening Karthi’s older brother Surya’s NGK.
Touted to be a flick about prison break the film is said to be the depiction of a chain of events that happen within a time period of four hours during night. Given the short span of events depicted, the film will hit the screens in the absence of a female lead. Apart from actor Karthi the flick has actors George Mariyaan, Anjathey fame actor Naren, Kanna Ravi, Vatsan Chakravarthy and Ramana in various other pivotal roles. The musical instruments for the film will be handled by music director Sam CS. While Sathyan Sooryan cranked the camera for the film, Philomin Raj will be trimming the film. The film is expected to hit the theaters on July.
