A different journey with lots of fun, thrill and excitement😊👍@Nelsondilpkumar @anirudhofficial @priyankaamohan @KalaiArasu_ @kjr_studios @KVijayKartik @nirmalcuts @KiranDrk @SonyMusicSouth #DOCTORFromOct9 in theatres👍
As per the 2-minute-32-second video, the film revolves around a five-member group who are pretending to be a family and kidnapping kids. On the other hand, their leader, a doctor (played by Sivakarthikeyan) is shown engaging in human trafficking activities. Though the footage doesn't really reveal much in terms of the plot, the film surely has more to offer and the array of antagonists shown in the trailer serves as proof. On the flip side, their confrontation with the main protagonist is surely going to be intense, as shown towards the end of the footage. Anirudh Ravichander's music deserves huge applause as it gels perfectly with each and every shot.
Well, the Nelson Dilipkumar directorial is finally hitting the theatres on October 9. It is worth mentioning that earlier reports had suggested that the team has locked deals with a popular OTT platform for its digital premiere.
However, with the COVID-19 situation in control, the team decided to opt for the theatrical release, as promised earlier. Initially, the film was scheduled for a theatrical release in late 2020, however, the makers decided to postpone the date owing to the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown. The film recently made headlines when one of its producers Rajesh Kotapadi had opened up about the film's release and claimed that he has been bearing financial constraints caused by COVID-19 in spite of having a fully ready film in hand. Well, all's well that ends well.
Backed by Sivakarthikeyan's SK Productions in association with Rajesh's KJR Studios, Doctor has Gang Leader (Telugu) actress Priyanka Arul Mohan as the leading lady, who will also be seen playing the love interest of Suriya in Etharkkum Thunindhavan. Apart from the diva, the thriller also features Vinay Rai, Yogi Babu, Ilavarasu, Arun Alexander and Bigg Boss Tamil 4 fame Archana Chandhoke.
The technical team of Doctor includes cinematographer Vijay Karthik Kannan, editor R Nirmal and popular music composer Anirudh Ravichander. Last year one of the songs of the film titled 'Chellamma' was well received by social media users. For those who are unaware, the peppy track penned by Sivakarthikeyan was about the ban on TikTok in India. The other tracks including 'Nenjame' and 'So Baby' have also been released.
