Starring Chaya Singh and Thambi Ramaiah, Lilly Rani is all set to make its OTT debut this week.
Tamil relationship drama has finally Lilly Rani managed to find a home on a streaming platform. The film will premiere on Aha Tamil on January 5, more than one year after its initial theatrical release.
Based on the trailer, Lilly Rani seems like a complicated relationship drama. The narrative seems to centre on Chaya Singh's Rani and her newborn baby. It's safe to assume that she is a single mother and is struggling to look after the baby all by herself.
The plot thickens as Rani discloses that the father of her child is an elderly man on the brink of retirement. Moorthy, played by Thambi Ramaiah, is taken aback and appears unaware of having fathered a child with a much younger woman. However, when faced with the situation, he earnestly embraces his paternal responsibilities, providing for both the child and the mother. The complexity deepens with the introduction of a younger man, even younger than Rani. He seems to have a strong infatuation on Rani and Rani also seems to have conflicting emotions about him. Will Rani choose to be with a younger man or the older man, the father of her baby - seems to be the moral dilemma of the protagonist and also the main source of all the drama.
Written and directed by Vishnu Ramakrishnan, Lilly Rani was first released in cinemas on September 9, 2022. However, the film failed to make any dent at the box office. Will the film get its due after its OTT release? It remains to be seen.
Besides Chaya Singh and Thambi Ramaiah, Lilly Rani also stars Dushyanth Jayaprakash, Jayaprakash, Boopalan, Raqath Fathima and Akash Ram among others.
Lilly Rani will also be available for streaming on OTTplay Premium from January 5.
