A few days before, a new Tamil film titled Mathil, was officially announced. It was revealed that Mathil will be a direct OTT release film that will stream on Zee 5 OTT platform. Starring veteran Tamil filmmaker KS Ravikumar in the main lead role, the film is directed by Mithran R Jawahar who is known for his works with Dhanush - Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Uthamaputhiran, and Kutty. During the lockdown phase, Zee 5 network released quality content-driven movies like Ka Pae Ranasingam, Lock Up and now, Mathil will be the latest addition to the list. This Zee 5 original film will release on April 14 on the special occasion of Tamil New Year. Produced by Singa Sankaran under the banner of SS Group, the film also stars Mime Gopi, Bigg Boss Madhumita, Kathadi Ramamurthy, and Lollu Sabha Swaminathan.

The cinematography is handled by G.Balamurugan, while the editing is done by M.Thiyagarajan. Talking about the film, director Mithran Jawahar said, “Mathil speaks about an important issue. An issue that will relate to everyone who works hard and build their houses from their savings. This is a special and challenging movie for me. I have till now done only family dramas or hilarious contents. This is the first time I am doing a movie on a social cause. There are situations in life where we fear the power above us and back down. But the need to express our emotions and stand up for our rights is stressed in the film".

KS Ravikumar, in his official statement, said, “What is happening in our neighbourhood is shown in the movie. It is a lesson for politicians. Reminds us of our responsibility. A full stop to needless illegal acts and a salute to the police force. An eye-opener for the selfish who stay away. In short, Mathil is a movie where a bold and responsible father faces a problem and overcomes it”. Ahead of the film's release, the makers have released the trailer which looks quite promising. The trailer gives us an idea of how the film is going to be and the core conflict is shown in the trailer.

What happens when an ordinary common man's own house wall is being illegally occupied by an influential politician? The fight of the common man (KS Ravikumar) against the corrupt politician (Mime Gopi), is what Mathil is going to be all about.
