The official trailer of Jyothika’s Kaatrin Mozhi was released on Thursday by actor Karthi. The film is the Tamil remake of the Hindi film Tumhari Sulu with Jyothika reprising the role played by Vidya Balan in the original.
The two-minute trailer shows Jyothika playing Vijayalakshmi Balakrishnan, a homemaker, who ends up becoming a radio jockey (RJ) quite by chance. Jyothika’s attempts to modulate her voice so that it sounds sultry are quite hilarious in the trailer.
The trailer gives us a good idea of Vijayalakshmi’s rise to fame followed by the challenges she has to face within her family.
The trailer also has a surprise cameo by Simbu who compliments Jyothika on her “hello”. Simbu has worked with Jyothika in films like Saravana and Manmadhan.
The film also stars Vidharth and Lakshmi Manchu in crucial roles. While Vidharth will be seen playing Jyothika’s husband, Lakshmi will reprise Neha Dhupia’s role from the original. Others from the cast include Kumaravel, M.S. Bhaskar, Manobala, Mohan Raman, Uma Padmanabhan, Sindhu Shekaran, Seema Taneja, and Master Tejas.
The makers had previously announced via a statement that Jyothika would be grooving to the widely popular Malayalam number 'Jimikki Kammal’ in the film. Apparently, the official song rights were bought and the song has been used at a crucial juncture in this film. The sequence featuring Jyothika and Lakshmi Manchu was shot just a few days ago.
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 has been directed by Radha Mohan who previously worked with Jyothika in Mozhi.
Jyothika who awaits the release of Kaatrin Mozhi on November 16 was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
