Jeethu Joseph is not new to the Tamil film industry as he had made his debut in the year 2015 with the Kamal Haasan starrer Papanasam. It was the remake of the hit Malayalam film Drishyam. While the Malayalam version had Mohanlal and Meena in the lead roles, in the Tamil version, it was Kamal Haasan and Gauthami. Drishyam had a universal appeal with an engaging plot, so much so that it was remade in Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu and struck a chord with the audiences in a big way.
