We have already reported that Gautham Karthik will be sporting a desi look--clad in a typical white shirt and dhoti--for his action drama Muthuramalingam. In the film, the young hunk will be paired opposite Priya Anand under the direction of Rajadurai. The actress, we hear, will play the role of a courageous village and has also tried her hands on Silambam for few scenes.

Set in Madurai, the film not based on Muthuramalingam Thevar. It is a story of a boy named Muthuramalingam — his trials and tribulations.
