On Thursday, the makers of Arulnithi's Kazhuvethi Moorkan announced that the film is all set to release on May 26. The film is helmed by Raatchasi-fame SY Gowthamaraj. The makers released the film's teaser on April 22.
Backed by Ambeth Kumar's Olympia Movies, the film will be a rural actioner. The film has Dushara Vijayan playing the female lead while Santosh Pratap plays the antagonist.
In an earlier conversation with Cinema Express, director SY Gowthamaraj said, "Kazhuvethi Moorkan is an action film set in Ramanathapuram. The title is based on Arulnithi's character name, Moorkasamy. In districts like Ramanathapuram, every temple will have a Kazhuvethi tree which was used to execute the medieval capital punishment method. The tree is a character in the film."
Kazhuvethi Moorkan has Saya Devi paired opposite Santhosh. It also stars Munishkanth, Sharath Lohithaswa, Raja Simman, and Yaar Kannan. The film has music by D Imman, cinematography by Sridhar and editing by Nagooran.
