Based on a true story
A film is underway based on the sensational Swathi murder case that shook the state last year. The venture is being produced by SK Subaiah under his banner Jaya Subhashree Productions and is simply titled Swathi Kolai Vazhaku.
The infamous murder of the young woman, during the wee hours of June 24 at the Nungambakkam railway station sent ripples across the city, and in fact, the entire state. SD Ramesh who directed Jananam with Arun Vijay will be helming this project. The director says that in the process of making films based on real life incidents, there will be some creative freedom taken, but the film still presents the case as it happened.
Swathi Kolai Vazhaku features Ajmal as Sakthi, a police inspector, who handles the investigation. Aayira will be donning the role of Swathi. Debutant Mano will be playing the role of the accused. Written by RP Ravi who directed Tharkappu, the film has Shyam T Raj composing the music, Jones Anand handling the cinematography, and Maari in charge of editing.
