Actor Sivakarthikeyan has cemented his place in the Tamil film industry with a bunch of significant roles over the years. With an equal flair for comedy and emotion, the actor has starred in many commercially successful films and is quite clearly a crowd puller. His next venture titled Doctor will see him playing the role of a medical professional for the first time. The film is touted to be a comedy with music by millennial favourite Anirudh Ravichander. Doctor is written and directed by Nelson Dhilipkumar (who gave us the hit black comedy Kolamaavu Kokila) and bankrolled by Sivakarthikeyan’s own production house SK productions in collaboration with KJR studios. The film is slated for a Christmas release. Here’s what we can expect.

An entertainer about a doctor who wants a change in the system

As per reports coming in, Sivakarthikeyan will play a committed doctor who is caught in the endless web of medical corruptions and faces numerous challenges to execute his job honestly. Disheartened by what he sees, he is galvanized into bringing about a positive change in the medical field. How he goes about achieving these forms the crux of the story. Doctor also has Priyanka Arul Mohan in the female lead with Vinay Rai being roped in as the antagonist. He was last seen and appreciated in Myskkin’s Thupparivalan for his negative turn.In addition, comedian Yogi Babu will also tickle the funny bones along with Sivakarthikeyan in the film along with VJ Archana and Arun Alexander. Nelson Dhilipkumar the director has stated that contrary to what people would be expecting, Doctor is an out and out fun-filled entertainer rather than a medical thriller. The first track Chellama with lyrics penned by Sivakarthikeyan himself and sung by the actor and Anirudh is a peppy mass number which is already trending virally on all social media platforms.

With the director’s penchant for off-beat comedies and Sivakarthikeyan’s comic timing,Doctor promises to be an enjoyable ride for all. There’s so much more to know about this film in the coming weeks so keep watching this space for updates.
