The trailer for the upcoming Jiiva-starrer Kee, directed by Kalees, is out and is currently trending on YouTube.

The trailer, filled with micro gadgets, flashing computer screens and buzzing smartphones, promises a psychological-tech thriller. There’s also a reference made to a game ‘more dangerous’ than the Blue Whale challenge.

Produced by Michael Rayappan of Global Infotainment, the music for the film has been scored by Vishal Chandrasekhar of Jil Jung Juk fame.

The trailer begins on a lighter note, with Jiiva asking Siri to help him with a pick-up line. It also hints at a love triangle between the leads. However, things soon take a serious turn, with screens flashing messages such as ‘firewall breach’ and ‘access denied’, hinting at hacking and cyberbullying.

The trailer promises to address the important issue of dangerous online games that can lure children into committing horrific acts, such as the Blue Whale Challenge that was recently in the news.

Malayalam actor Govind Padmasoorya plays the anti-hero in this film, which marks his debut in Tamil cinema. Jiiva dons a smart look in the trailer of the film, with RJ Balaji providing comic relief.

A promo of the film that was released last year took a dig at the Goods and Service Tax. The promo also has a message towards the end that reads, “A film not just entertains but also sends us the message. We care.”

Nikki Galrani and Anaika Soti play the female leads. The film also stars Rajendra Prasad, Suhasini, RJ Balaji and Manobala. The shooting of Kee began in August 2016 and is set to release in February this year.

Speaking at the audio launch that took place on Friday, actor Vishal announced that he will postpone the release of his upcoming thriller Irumbu Thirai so that it doesn’t clash with Jiiva’s Kee.

Both Irumbu Thirai and Kee were slated to release on February 9 but Vishal has agreed to move the release of his film because he wants to help out producer Michael Rayappan, who incurred heavy losses with his last release AAA.
