The film’s director R Ajay Gnanamuthu made his directorial debut with the horror thriller Demonte Colony, which was a box office success. This has raised the expectations around Imaikkaa Nodigal, whose teaser has further heightened the buzz around the movie. It looks like an edge-of-the-seat entertainer.
Nayanthara had a great year in 2017 and, with her recent choices, she has proved that she is not afraid to try out different genres. Not restricting herself to run-of-the-mill roles, the actress has played strong characters, and in the teaser too comes across as a no-nonsense police officer.
Hindi director-producer Anurag Kashyap dons the role of the antagonist. It will be interesting to see his character Rudra go head-to-head against Nayanthara’s character Anjali. There were many names doing the rounds for this role, including those of Prabhudheva and Gautham Vasudev Menon. But the director, Gnanamuthu, was keen on Kashyap.
