Suriya has unveiled the first look and title of Karthi-Jyothika starrer ‘Thambi’. The film, which has been titled ‘Donga’ in Telugu, will feature Karthi as a con artiste and Jyothika as his elder sister.
Sathyaraj plays a key role in this movie directed by Jeethu Joseph of ‘Papanasam’ fame. “Karthi and Jyothika play contrasting characters in ‘Thambi’, while Sathyaraj has a equally important role,” sources say.
It is learnt that the film will strike a fine balance between humour and action. It may be recalled that ‘Thambi’ is the title of a Madhavan starrer movie directed by Seeman. Sources say makers of Jyothika-Karthi flick felt that ‘Thambi’ would be the apt title for their film as well and hence, obtained its rights.
The movie produced by Viacom 18 Studios and Parallel Minds has Nikhila Vimal and Ammu Abhirami in pivotal characters. Govind Vasantha of ’96’ fame has composed music for the film, whose Tamil Nadu theatrical rights have been acquired by Shakti Film Factory.
While Karthi is currently enjoying the success of his recent release ‘Kaithi’ directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Jyothika’s last venture ‘Jackpot’, in which she shared the screen space with Revathy, was also a hit.
