Karthi's last release was Mani Ratnam's Kaatru Veliyidai which sank without a trace. Now the Paruthi Veeran star is busy with director Vinoth's Dheeran – Adhigaaram Ondru. After proving his mettle in khaki with Siruthai, Karthi returns as a straight-forward cop in this film and he will be teaming up with Rakul Preet for the first time.
Its Producer SR Prabhu has officially announced that the film will hit the screens worldwide on November 17 this year, while the teaser will be out on September 27 and the trailer for Diwali on October 17.
Tipped to be a crime-thriller, it is based on stories about how cops deal with certain cases and the subsequent repercussions that follow. Director Vinoth revealed that the film is based on the real-life story of a newspaper article published in 2005 and Karthi wanted to keep his character as true as possible to the original person.
Vinod developed the script by conversing with several police officers and the director had a 600-page documentation on a serious crime. The film will have a strong North Indian connect, not only in terms of location but also in the star cast.
Ghibran is composing the music for the film and Sathyan Sooryan is cranking the camera. The film is being produced by SR Prabhu and SR Prakashbabu of Dream Warrior Pictures.
