Ever since the Kaatrin Mozhi makers revealed that Jyothika would be grooving to the popular Malayalam number ‘Jimikki Kammal', fans have been eagerly waiting to watch her version of the song. The song that was released on Monday, four days ahead of its release on November 16, has received a great response so far.
Jyothika seems to be in two minds in the song’s video, dancing when her friends ask her to and walking away when they’re not looking. It appears as if the song could be placed before or after an emotional exchange in the film.
It was reported that the makers had bought the song rights to use it in the film. In the Hindi original, Vidya Balan danced to Sreedevi's 'Hawa Hawaii'.
“I needed a popular song which would have an instant connect with the south, and the first one that came to my mind was 'Jimikki Kammal'. The sequence has Jyothika, who plays an RJ, celebrating her success by breaking into a dance as the song plays from a recorder. She is joined by her colleagues played by Lakshmi Manchu, Sandra, Sindhu Shyam, and Kumaravel. The song has been choreographed by Viji,” Radha Mohan was quoted by Deccan Chronicle.
The official trailer of Jyothika’s Kaatrin Mozhi was released on November 8 by actor Karthi.
The film also stars Vidharth, Lakshmi Manchu, Kumaravel, MS Bhaskar, Manobala, Mohan Raman, Uma Padmanabhan, Sindhu Shekaran, Seema Taneja, and Master Tejas.
The film that has received 'U' certification is slated for release later this month. With music by AH Kaashif, the film’s cinematography has been done by Mahesh Muthuswami with Praveen KL editing it. Produced by G Dhananjayan, S Vikram Kumar, Lalitha Dhananjayan of BOFTA Mediaworks India, the film is the Tamil remake of the Bollywood flick Tumhari Sulu and has been directed by Radha Mohan who previously worked with Jyothika in Mozhi.
