Still of Yogesh in Ikk

Babu Tamizh, who rose to fame writing the thriller movie Jiivi, is all set to present his directorial debut movie ‘Ikk’ to audiences on the big screen. The Gurusomasundaram and Yogesh starrer is all set to come out on December 10.

According to reports, Ikk is expected to be a psychological fantasy movie about the life of a football player (played by Yogesh), who gets embroiled in a series of twists and turns in his personal life. The movie picks up speed when he gets hospitalised after getting hurt in a match and is accompanied by his driver (played by Gurusomasundaram) throughout the entire process. It also stars Anicka Vikhraman as Yogesh’s wife in the movie.

The movie derives its title from a common slang in Tamil, which people refer to when someone tries to hide something. Writer-turned-director Babu Tamizh explained this in an official statement about the movie and how it got its title. Common usages include, for instance, when someone is asked, “Enna ikk vechu pesura” (which roughly translates: why are you talking using ‘ikk’), which is a question as to whether the person is hiding something or lying. The writer believed this word seemed to be a perfect fit to his script.

Talking about Gurusomasundaram, he is known for appearing in movies like Petta, Vanjagar Ulagam, Joker and the upcoming Indian 2.
