Last year, the much-loved Mani Ratnam suffered a major setback when his film Kaatru Veliyidai opened to an under-whelming response at the box office and received mixed reviews from the critics. A romantic-drama, it boasted of memorable performances from Aditi Rao Hydari and Karthi. However, this was not enough to save it from being a disappointment. With 2017 in the rear-view, Mani Ratnam is back with his latest big release Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. A crime-drama, it is one of the big releases of the year and it has already created a great deal of buzz amongst the movie buffs, courtesy its awesome trailers.
Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is a multi-starrer and features Arvind Swamy, Jyothika and STR in the lead. The film's main cast also features Jyothika and Vijay Sethupathi. Actor Prakash Raj plays a key role in Chekka Chivantha Vaanam and his character is likely to be an integeral part of the plot.
