Director Vignesh Raja's Por Thozhil is releasing tomorrow. Billed as a crime drama, it stars Sarath Kumar and Ashok Selvan in lead roles. Nikhila Vimal, PL Thenappan, Santhosh Keezhattoor and Harish Kumar among others play pivotal characters in the project bankrolled by Sameer Nair, Deepak Segal, Mukesh R Mehta, CV Sarathi, Poonam Mehra and Sandeep Mehra.

The promo videos of the movie have been intriguing and SonyLIV has acquired its digital rights a while ago. Ahead of the film's release, we bring you five reasons to watch it in theatres...


Whodunit with twists and turns

The movie is packed with ample twists and turns and fans of the genre will be in for a big treat. Cops setting out to find a serial killer is a plot which has been explored several times, but this time around, makers have claimed to have come up with a different approach in presentation and performances.

Presence of lead actors

Sarath Kumar and Ashok Selvan, who essay lead roles, will be seen playing contrasting roles in the film. While the former is an experienced cop, the latter relies on theory and finds it a little difficult to face harsh realities of the case. Their chemistry is likely to be one of the highlights of the movie which stars other talented artists as well.

No-nonsense screenplay

The makers have claimed that the movie boasts of an intriguing screenplay that is likely to keep the viewers glued to their seats till the end. They have attempted not to deviate from the plot by incorporating unnecessary elements and relies only on those aspects which aid the investigation process.

Raving reviews

Por Thozhil has been garnering positive reviews on social media ever since its press show was held yesterday in Chennai. Many critics have been hailing it as one of the well-made whodunits in Tamil cinema.

Technical aspects

Apart from valuable contributions from actors, the film's story relies heavily on Kalaiselvan Sivaji's cinematography, Sreejith Sarang's editing, Jakes Bejoy's music and action choreography by Phoenix Prabhu.
