After the passable”Dev”,Karthi seems to be back in form with Kaithi.Trailer of Kaithi released today clearly promises that.Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagaram fame,Kaithi is a story of a prison inmate on a run. Trailer of Kaithi is a perfect blend of all the ingredients required to make a rollicking thriller.Major addons are the thumping background score by Sam CS and eye popping visuals by cinematographer Sathyan Sooryan. Malayalam actor Narain who rarely makes appearances in Tamil cinema plays a pivotal role here and he is a treat to watch on screen.
It is good to see Tamil cinema slowly breaking out stereotypes with respect to the mandatory romance and love interest irrespective of genre and context.Kudos to director Lokesh Kanagaraj for not falling into this trap.
Apart from Kaithi, Karthi has Maniratnam’s period drama “Ponniyan Selvan” in his kitty. On the other hand, director Lokesh Kanagaran has signed up actor Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi for his next film which is currently in the pre production stage.
