Kaatrin Mozhi will release on November 16. The film, directed by Radhamohan, stars Jyotika, Vidaarth, Lakshmi Manchu, Kumaravel, MS Bhaskar, Manobala, Uma Padmanabhan, Seema Taneja, Sindhu and others, with cameos by Silambarasan and Yogi Babu. Produced by Dhananjayan of BOFTA Arts, the film features music by AH Kaashif, the nephew of AR Rahman.
Jyotika plays an RJ in the film, and gives advice to callers. Through the film, we see how her character Vijayalakshmi, balances home, work, pleasure, life and more. Vidaarth plays her husband who finds he has to deal with his jealousy over her new-found success.
In an exclusive interview to Silverscreen, director Radhamohan talked about working with Jyotika years after Mozhi, and said he was looking for a script that would do justice to Jyotika. “The thought of working with her was at the back of my mind, but I knew there would be huge comparisons. I wanted a woman-centric script and for some spark to ignite. One day, Jo saw Tumhari Sulu, asked me to watch it, and said we could remake it if I was interested. And that’s how things fell in place,” he said.
Meanwhile, songs from the film have been slowly trickling out. On Monday, the ‘Jimikki Kammal‘ song from the movie was released, in which Jyotika can be seen dancing and celebrating. Dhananjayan, the film’s producer announced that GV Prakash will release the single ‘Dirty Pondatti’, with lyrics by Madhan Karky, later today.
