The title and first look poster for actor Prabhu Deva's next film directed by Santhosh P Jayakumar released on Wednesday. Poikkal Kuthirai is the title of the film. In the first look, Prabhu Deva is a crippled man covered in blood and wearing an artificial limb. On one hand, he has a child, and on the other, he has a gigantic spanner.
"Here is the First Look of #PoikkalKuthirai, a gripping story of grit!" Prabhu Deva wrote sharing the poster.
Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Raiza Wilson have been cast in this film. While none of them will play Prabhudheva's love interests, they are said to play pivotal roles. Prakash Raj, Samuthirakani, and John Kokken also star in the film. The film will include Imman's soundtrack.
In an interview with DT Next, the director said that the film will be a different experience for movie lovers. “ The film is an emotional action flick. I have always wanted to do something different and the script of Poikkal Kuthirai will show the audience another dimension when compared to my previous directories like Hara Hara Mahadev Ki or Ghajinkanth. The prosthetic leg you see in the poster is what the title denotes as Poikkal Kuthirai;” said Santhosh.
The film currently continues shooting in Chennai, with 40% of the work already completed. Poikkal Kuthirai is being produced by Darkroom Pictures and Mini Studio. The film is set to complete shooting by the end of September and released in December.
