Actor Karthi’s new film, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, is headed for a mega battle this Diwali. The movie that will release at the same time as Kaithi is Thalapathy Vijay’s Bigil, directed by Atlee. Who will bag the box office numbers? We’ll know when the reviews for both these Tamil movies are out. Kaithi recently was cleared by the Censor Board with a U/A certificate. The production house is planning to release the film in Telugu too. It will be released simultaneously on the 25th of October. If you saw the trailer of the film, you know that it will be an action-packed entertainer. Karthi looks at ease performing some amazing action-stunts. But what’s his film about?

‘Kaithi’ in Tamil means ‘prisoner’. And from the trailer, it is evident that Karthi is a prisoner who has escaped. He has a young daughter whom he has not seen in 10 years. Why he is imprisoned is not disclosed but the trailer gives us a glimpse of his mysterious backstory. The police chasing after an escaped prisoner is understandable but Karthi is also being chased by a gang of goons. What do they want from him? We’ll find out when Kaithi releases.

Kaithi also stars Narain and Mariam George among others. The music is handled by Sam C.S. Director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s last movie Maanagaram (2017) was a big hit and was appreciated by all. So will his latest venture be a mega-hit as well? We shall find out soon.
