A prison break drama, the film stars Ramana, Anjathey-fame Naren, and George Mariyaan in important roles
With the second film of director Lokesh Kanagaraj, who made an impressive debut with Maanagaram, Kaithi, all set to be released this Diwali, the filmmaker has revealed in a recent interview that the film's script was originally written with Mansoor Ali Khan in mind.
