Lady Superstar Nayanthara's long-pending project Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, directed by Chakri Toleti finally gets a release date. The film is set to hit screens on July 26 and it marks Nayanthara's fourth release of the year.
The film was earlier slated to release on June 14, but a stay was obtained by director Balaji Kumar, who filed a petition saying he had the rights to the title and had bought it from late writer Sujatha who published a Tamil novel by the same name in 1981.
Following this, the Court issued a stay and asked the producers to respond to Balaji Kumarâ€™s claims. Later last month the Madras High Court ordered the interim injunction to be lifted and cleared the film for release.
Touted to be a mystery thriller, the film was announced by Chakri Toleti in November 2016 but faced production delays. The film is said to be an official remake of the American horror film Hush (2016). It has Nayanthara playing the lead role with Bhumika Chawla taking up a pivotal character. Prathap Pothen and Rohini Hattangadi will be seen in supporting roles.
Produced by V Mathiyalagan under his banner Etcetera Entertainment it was said that the film would be the first production venture of composer Yuvan Shankar Raja. However, he opted out of the film.
The technical crew of Kolaiyuthir Kaalam includes Achu Rajamani for background score, Cory Geryak for cinematography and Rameshwar S Bhagat for editing. It may be noted here that Tamannaah Bhatia reprised Nayanthara's role in its Hindi version titled Khamoshi.
Nayanthara began this year with the release of Ajith starrer Viswasam. Last seen in Sivakarthikeyan's Mr Local, she is a part of Nivin Pauly starrer Malayalam film Love Action Drama that will be hitting the marquee on September 5 to coincide with the Onam festival.
She also has Vijay 63, directed by Atlee Kumar, to be bankrolled by AGS Entertainments and scheduled to release this Deepavali. Besides these Tamil movies, she also has Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in Telugu.
