Thanimai, the new film featuring Sonia Agarwal, will release on April 26. Directed by S Sivaraman, the movie will see the actress play a Sri Lankan refugee.
In the movie, Aggarwal is a mother who returns from Malaysia; the film traces her lonely journey to find her long-lost child. “It will be an emotional drama that showcases the nature of men from various walks of life,” the director was quoted as saying by Cinema Express.
The cast comprises actors such as Ganja Karuppu, Lollu Sabha Swaminathan, and choreographer Sandy. The film has music by Dhina and cinematography by Venki Darshan. S Sivaraman is a lawyer-turned-filmmaker who has directed movies such as Kagitha Kappal and Solli Tharava. The first look of Thanimai was launched by producer G Dhananjayan in January.
