Director Andrew Pandian, who has completed the shooting of Jai-starrer Breaking News, a super hero film, has started his next. This time, too, the filmmaker is attempting something out-of-the-box. Titled 2030, the movie starring Mahat Raghavendra and debutant Swathi, is a time travel thriller that deals with the current pandemic crisis and a medical conspiracy.  

Produced by Mouttou Sambandam, the movie has wrapped up its first schedule in Chennai recently. He says that what excited him to make the film is the novelty the story possesses. According to him, the script touches upon corporate medical conspiracies, which he thinks, is a relevant topic in today's times.

Billed as a futuristic action drama, the makers say that 2030 has romance and sci-fi elements, too. The story begins with the heroine's parents getting killed in 2021. How the protagonist, a CBI officer, takes revenge in the future forms the crux of the story. The highlight of the project is expected to be the art works which include futuristic view of Chennai. 

The sequences in 2030 will have skyscrapers, roads and vehicles which are quite different from the current period. We hear the team has done a lot of researches for the same.  

Meanwhile, a few stills from Andrew's Breaking News were released last month, which featured Jai, Banusree and Snehan. Jai will be seen playing an IT employee in the film who hails from a middle-class family. 

How he transforms into a superhero after some unexplainable chemical reactions happens in his body is what the film is all about. The film's cinematography is by Jhonylal & Wiliams, while Antony has handled the editing. The trailer of Breaking News is expected to be out soon.
