Vijay in dual roles in Kaththi!

Well, it was looking like the Kaththi fever had died down a bit after the release of it s first look poster a few days ago, and the fans were satisfied with the progress of the film – but AR Murugadoss evidently felt it was time to spice things up a little again and he has released some more information about the flick to the eager fans!


Yes folks, this one is employing just the opposite strategy of its competitors (you know the ones) when it comes to keeping the fans in the loop.

And here’s the latest on Kaththi then:

Vijay will be playing dual roles in the film! Yep, and their names have been given out too – Jeevanandam and Kathiresan.

Also, denying the popular trend its due, ARM says that Kaththi is not a ‘gangster film’. The story will begin in Chennai and end there too, says the veteran writer/director. What about the portions in the middle you ask? No clue as of now, but being an ARM movie, we can sure expect some surprises.

And by the way, Samantha’s character’s name, if anyone’s wondering, will be Ankitha.

Kaththi has the music of the young sensation Anirudh Ravichander and more specifically, it also has a song sung by Vijay himself – a ‘love kuthu’ song to be exact! Hey, if anyone can pull that one off, it’s Anirudh.

The film is being planned for a Diwali release and this will put it in competition with Thala 55, and we will have yet another Thala versus Thalapathy war of entertainment to look forward to.

Given ARM and Vijay’s previous collaboration was the superhit Thuppakki, the remake of which in Hindi, Holiday, too has crossed the Rs 100 crores mark, the expectations for Kaththi are way too high.

Let’s wait for this Diwali to find out.
