The thriller Coffee, which will have its TV premiere without a theatrical run, stars actress Ineya in the title role.
The film, directed for the first time by Sai Krishna, stars actor Ineya in the lead role as well as real-life couple Rahul Dev and Mugdha in their first-ever joint appearance in a Tamil movie. Prasanna Bala, the music director, composed the soundtrack. The director of photography (DOP) for the movie is Venkatesh S. The editor is Venkat Raajen. The art director is Durairaj G. The lyricist is Mohan Raj.
The movie covers a sister's search for her lost brother amid corruption and human trafficking while chronicling the lives of a young woman. Despite losing both of her parents when she was a little child, Sathya (played by actor Ineya) never gives up and wants to become a police officer. She is however persuaded by circumstances to pursue a career as a cab driver, and as a result, she ends up being the lone provider for her brother Karthik, who is the only member of her family.
Commenting on the direct television premiere, director Sai Krishna said, “With the direct television premiere of Coffee, I am elated to share this milestone achievement of my life with the audiences of Colors Tamil. I am further thrilled that my debut film centers around a strong female character where a woman fights all odds to save her beloved brother. The idea was to spotlight a woman’s strength and courage at its finest and offer a beacon of inspiration to audiences.
Having turned to filmmaking from engineering, I am glad that I chose this path since the response received from the audiences for the initial stages of the posters and announcement of the film has been positive and overwhelming. I am confident that the direct television premiere will call for an exciting weekend altogether.”
Adding to this, Ineya said, “It was an exciting experience, especially to perform alongside veteran actors like Rahul Dev and Mugdha Godse, who have only offered me a plethora of options to learn from them. I am happy to portray a brave character like Sathya, and undertaking the action scenes was challenging and fun at the same time. Some films have powerful female characters, but Coffee is sure to elevate the experience for audiences a notch higher. ”
