The star of the evening was undoubtedly Nithya Menen. She was praised immensely for her strong acting skills and ability to pull off any role. Nithya carved a niche for herself in a very short span, a very rare thing for any actress to do so.
Nithya strongly feels that Malini 22 will set a bench mark in her career as one of the landmark films. "When Sripriya approached me to narrate the story, i really liked her conviction that i can do something good in this film. A lot of people keep saying that their film is quite different from others, but i would say one thing for sure; Malini 22 is the kind of film which will make a huge impact and make people think. I would also like to thank all my male co stars in the film who played brave roles. It wasn’t easy for them and you will understand what i mean by brave when you watch the film" she said, speaking at the event. Actor Naresh of Tollywood who worked in close to 140 films will make his debut in Tamil with this film.
The film has been directed by Sri priya, while Manoj Pillai did the cinematography. The music has been scored by Aravind shankar and is produced by Rajkumar Sethupathy.
