The first look poster of KD Engira Karuppudurai, a Tamil film directed by Madhumita Sundararaman under Saregama’s production wing Yoodlee Films dropped recently. The movie that has been doing the rounds in the film festival circuit, is now set for a November release in theatres. It stars Mu Ramasamy ayya and debut actor Nagavishal in the lead.
The first look poster features a toothless Ramasamy seated in front of a heap of biryani, biting on a bone with Nagavishal at the back, facepalming at the sight. Except for the two characters, the entire poster has been illustrated with bright colours.
RJ Balaji took to Twitter to release the first look poster.

Director Madhumita Sundararaman, who is known for films like Vallamai Tharayo (which won Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Family Film), Kola Kolaya Mundhirika and Moone Moonu Varthai, has reportedly picked a lively yet emotional storyline for this film. It is about a bed-ridden old man who wakes up from a coma and escapes from his household when he comes to know that his family is planning to euthanise him. He befriends a cheerful eight-year-old and embarks on a journey with him, fulfilling all the dreams on his bucket list. While the boy is an orphan yearning for love, the old man seeks solitude from a disloyal family.
The film was nominated under multiple categories and won various awards at festivals including the 3rd Singapore South Asian International Film Festival and the New York Indian Film Festival. Yog Japee, Badava Gopi, Gabrella Sellus and Guna have played significant roles. Meyyendiran Kempuraj has handled the camera, Karthikeya Murthy has composed music with Vijay Venkataramanan on the edit.
