Written and directed by Vijay, this Tamil movie stars Sai Pallavi in the lead role. It is produced by Allirajah Subaskaran under the Lyca Productions’ banner.
- Director Vijay is known to tell stories that may not be necessarily mainstream, but they have an emotional connect with the audience. Karu, a tale of a mother and her daughter is too such a film.
- Sai Pallavi, who captured the hearts of cinema audiences with her debut in the Malayalam movie Premam, makes her Tamil debut with Karu.
- The story focuses on the delicate issue of abortion. Not many movies are made on such taboo subjects, and it would be interesting to see how Vijay brings forth this sensitive topic.
