The teaser of Mei starring Aishwarya Rajesh, Nicky Sundaram and Kishore released recently. The film is directed by SA Bhaskaran, who assisted Kamal Haasan and Jeethu Joseph in their directorials. The story and dialogues for Mei is by Sentha Murugesan, and music is composed by Prithvi Kumar.
The one-and-a-half minute teaser sets up an interesting premise by giving us a glimpse into a series of crimes that happen in the medical industry. It was reported that Aishwarya plays a medical representative in the film, but Nicky and Kishore’s characters haven’t been revealed yet, although Kishore seems to be playing a police officer. While the teaser doesn’t tell us how the lives of the three main characters are connected, it does show them trying to investigate the crimes. The dialogues establish that no criminal activity, even the quietest, most minor one, goes unnoticed.
The title of the film Mei means truth. Aishwarya Rajesh told Silverscreen last month, “My character is that of a medical representative. She is a bold person who stands up for the right things in society.” The film introduces Nikki Sundaram, an Indian-American actor. Ajay Ghosh, who starred with Kishore in Visaaranai, actors Ramadas, Thangadurai, Charle VTM, Vinod Krishnan and others are part of the cast.
The cinematography for the film is by VN Mohan, and editing is by Preethi Mohan. Senthil Raghavan is the art director, Mahesh Mathew is the stunt director, and background score is by Anil Johnson. The film is produced by Sundaram Productions. Release announcements can be expected soon.
Meanwhile, Aishwarya Rajesh is busy with a line of films under production. She has Dhruva Natchathiram and the Vada Chennai sequels, and some reports say that she plays the lead in Siva Karthikeyan’s next with Pandiaraj. She also has three Telugu projects in the pipeline.
