Jayam Ravi’s Brother, helmed by M Rajesh, is a bilingual film that will be released in Tamil and Telugu
Actor Jayam Ravi had revealed that his 30th project, Brother, would be directed by M Rajesh, who has previously helmed movies like Siva Manasula Sakthi and Oru Kal Oru Kannadi. Brother also stars Priyanka Mohan as the female lead, opposite Jayam Ravi. Bhumika Chawla, Saranya Ponvannan, VTV Ganesh, Natty, Seetha, Achyuth and Rao Ramesh are all part of the cast of Brother. Although the makers have not revealed any details about the film's plot, some photos from the set have been doing the rounds on social media, which has fans guessing about the roles of all the actors.
New photos emerge from the sets of Brother
Jayama and Bhumika feature in the most recent photographs from the sets of Brother, along with Saranya Ponvannan and Priyanka Mohan. The set appears to be that of a wedding, and Bhumika is seen in a bridal outfit. This has led fans to speculate if the actress is playing Jayam's sister in the film.
Jayam Ravi shares his excitement about being part of the film
Jayam and the makers of Brother recently released its first look poster and announced that the film will be released in Tamil and Telugu. The actor expressed that he was excited to be part of the project. Taking to his social media handle, Jayam wrote, "Excited to be a '#Brother,' a word that connects us all Releasing worldwide in Tamil & Telugu !!! #BrotherMovie #BrotherFirstLook Happy #VinayagarChathurthi (sic)." The poster shows the actor crossing a busy road over to greener surroundings.
Brother’s first look poster is a rip-off of a Chinese drama
The first look poster was pretty much exactly the same as the original Chinese drama Breath of Destiny’s concept posters. Breath of Destiny is a 40-episode C-drama that aired during the pandemic. It is about how a team of emergency medical workers moves to an earthquake-hit island to do their best rescue amidst a lack of manpower and facilities.
Brother's first look featured the exact same concept, without much of a rehash. Indian audiences were quick to spot this and called it a "lazy reinterpretation" on social media.
