Even as Atharvaa's Thalli Pogathey, directed by Kannan, is expected on December 3 as a theatrical release, another movie of the actor will also arrive later in the month. Kuruthi Aattam, which has Sri Ganesh at the helm, is the young star's second project which will hit the screens the next month, on December 24.
The director's last project was the acclaimed crime thriller 8 Thottakkal (streaming on Zee5), starring MS Bhaskar in the lead, which released in 2017. Atharvaa was last seen in Sarjun KM's Thunintha Pin, a segment from Navarasa (streaming on Netflix) which released a few months ago.
Kuruthi Aattam has Priya Bhavani Shankar playing the female lead while Radhika Sarathkumar, Radha Ravi, Vinod Sagar and Vatsan Chakravarthy have played key roles in it. Tipped as an action flick, the film has cinematography by Dinesh Purushothaman and editing by Anil Krish.
The trailer of the movie, which was initially supposed to release in June 2020, was unveiled an year ago. The movie was officially announced in 2017 and it went on floors in 2018. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music for the movie which is based on the life of gangsters in Madurai.
The makers had released the lyric video of the song Thaalatum Mounam a few days ago. Swetha Mohan has lent the voice for the melody track which has been penned by Karthik Netha. Atharvaa's last theatrical release in Tamil was 100 (streaming on Amazon Prime Video) in 2019.
His Telugu debut Gaddalakonda Ganesh (streaming on Amazon Prime Video), remake of Tamil film Jigarthanda (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) also released in the same year. Priya Bhavani Shankar, on the other hand, had two direct-to-OTT releases recently, Oh Manapenne (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) and Kasada Tabara (streaming on SonyLIV).
