This is a week for thrillers, as the upcoming films in Tamil are Kathir’s cop thriller Sathru and Atharvaa’s action film Boomerang. In Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan’s crime thriller Badla is releasing.


Directed by debutant Naveen Nanjundan, this film is a cop thriller starring Kathir and Srushti Dange in the lead. For the first time, Kathir plays a commercial role. It is produced by Dilli Babu under the banner of Milestone Movies, who earlier produced Raatsasan and Marakatha Naanayam. Pawan, Suja Varunee, Neelima, Ponvannan, Marimuthu and others star in pivotal roles.

Talking about the film, actor Kathir earlier told Silverscreen“The lead character in Sathru is a cop, but a cop who is different, not like the ones in films like Singam 3. This film depicts many incidents that have parallels in real life, but it is not based on any specific incident. It is inspired by various other incidents.”


Directed by R Kannan of Jayamkondan fame, Boomerang is an action-thriller starring Atharvaa and Megha Akash in the lead. The film also features Sathish, RJ Balaji, Induja Ravichandran, Suhasini Maniratnam and J Mahendran in pivotal roles. It is produced by R Kannan under the banner Masala Pix. The music for the movie is composed by Radhan of Arjun Reddy fame.

It is said that the film will deal with issues like NEET, social media-led agitations, and how politicians stall decision-making in a democracy. The actor will be seen playing an ambitious youngster who fights for a social cause. He has three different looks in the film. In one of them he is completely bald, and for the other an elaborate prosthetic procedure was done.

Talking about the film at the audio launch, director Kannan said, “Boomerang will be the second movie in recent times to deal with the subject of agriculture after Kadaikutty Singam. We have to get down to the fields and work instead of voting and waiting for the politicians to bring about change.”


Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, starring Amitabh Bachchan as a lawyer and Taapsee Pannu as an accused criminal, this film is a crime thriller which revolves around a murder. It is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment. The film is the official adaptation of the 2017 Spanish movie Contratiempo: The Invisible Guest.
