As already announced, Sivakarthikeyan released the first look poster of RK Suresh’s next film, earlier this morning (Sept 23). Sivakarthikeyan unveiled the first look on his social media page and wished the team for the film’s success. This new film is titled Vichithiran and it is the official Tamil remake of the critically acclaimed Malayalam film, Joseph that starred Joju George, Athmiya Rajan, Malavika Menon and Dileesh Pothan in the lead roles. Vichithiran is directed by M Padmakumar who helmed the original and we will have to wait for a few more months to see how the script has been fine tuned to suit the taste of the Tamil audience.

Popular writer and director John Mahendran (Sachein director) has penned the dialogues for this investigative thriller which is produced by director Bala. The Sethu filmmaker has bankrolled this movie under the banner of B Studios, in association with Shark 9 Pictures. Vichithiran has music scored by GV Prakash Kumar who is in a great form after the success of Asuran and Soorarai Pottru (songs). We can expect the young talent to deliver an impressive score in this movie. On the technical side, the film has cinematography by Kayal fame Vetrivel Mahendran and editing by Sathish Suriya. While RK Suresh plays the lead role, he will be supported by Shamna Kasim (Poorna), Madhu Shalini and others in the star cast.

Talking about the film’s first look, it introduces us to the character played by RK Suresh and his aged makeover is interestingly done. We saw RK Suresh as a strong performer in Bala’s directorial, Thaarai Thappattai which turned out to be a perfect launchpad for him. Joseph was a film that had strong performances from the lead actors and it must have definitely been a challenging task for RK Suresh and other actors to replicate that. The film deals with the life of a retired police officer who is unexpectedly pulled into a criminal case involving organ harvesting.

The shooting of Vichithiran is completed and the makers are currently busy with the final leg of post production works. It is yet to be known if the film will have a direct OTT release. More announcements regarding the film are expected to be made in the coming weeks. Stay tuned. For now, check out the first look poster of RK Suresh’s Vichithiran here:
