What is Kodiyil Oruvan about?
Starring Vijay Antony in the lead, the movie is touted as a political thriller rife with action. The trailer for the same, which dropped earlier last month, sets the scene for a thrill ride and sees Antony don the avatar of a tutor who also dreams of cracking the IAS exams. A short peek that the trailer offers shows the intensity of his character, promising all the action, drama and ferocity of Antony helmed thrill-ride.
Vijay Antony, who started his career as a music director, becoming the first Indian recipient of the Cannes Golden Lion in 2009, had made his foray into acting in the 2012 film Naan. He has not looked back since. But not one to be limited, he is also set to add another feather to his cap with the upcoming highly anticipated film Pichaikkaran 2. Apart from playing the lead role, he will also direct the film.
The star has also handled the editing of Kodiyil Oruvan. In addition to Vijay Antony, the film also stars Aathmika, known for her role in Meesaya Murukku, as the female lead.
Kodiyil Oruvan, meaning one in a crore, features Ananda Krishnan in the director’s chair. Produced by TD Rajha’s banner Chendur Film International, the film’s initial release in April was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
