Kaithi starring Karthi in the lead role was directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj who is now one of the most sought after directors in Tamil cinema. Lokesh Kanagaraj managed to pack an intriguing action thriller that was backed by strong performances and technical brilliance. Sam CS composed music for this film which had Narain in an important role. The sequel to Kaithi is on cards and it will begin as soon as Karthi and Lokesh Kanagaraj complete their current set of commitments.
