National award-winning filmmaker Bala’s next film Naachiyaar has been confirmed to hit the screens worldwide on February 9. The film stars Jyothika as a foul-mouthed and ruthless cop, and composer-actor GV Prakash Kumar as a petty thief.

On Wednesday, the makers confirmed the film’s release date, which means it will release alongside another woman-centric film, Karu, the horror-thriller starring Sai Pallavi.

Naachiyaar marks the first time collaboration of Bala and Jyothika, whose role in the film is said to be the biggest highlight of the story. In the teaser, Bala gave audiences a glimpse of Jyothika’s character – swearing and torturing people – and it drew mixed response.

Prakash has crooned a number to Ilayaraja’s music in the film and he’s thrilled about it. This is the first time he has sung in the maestro’s composition and it’s definitely a proud moment in his career. Apparently, the song is said to come at an important juncture in the film and it was Bala who suggested Prakash should sing it. In Naachiyaar, Prakash plays a role that’s unlike anything he’s essayed so far in his career. He looked totally unrecognisable in the film’s teaser.

After impressing everyone with her performance as a documentary filmmaker in Magalir Mattum, Jyothika’s role in Naachiyaar is eagerly awaited. According to industry sources, she took special lessons to get the Tamil accent of her character right as it’s not the usual slang. Bala insisted that Jyothika dub for her character and his idea seems to have made quite an impact, thanks to Jyothika’s cussing in the end of the teaser.

Produced by Bala’s B Studios, the film is a thriller set in Chennai and Tanjore.
