Santhosh Prathap’s Kathir gets ‘U’ certificate


Santhosh Prathap’s upcoming film Kathir has bagged the ‘U’ certificate from the Censor Board. The film, which is directed by Dhinesh Palanivel, has Venkatesh Appadurai playing the lead role along with Bhavya Trikha. The star cast also includes Santhosh Prathap and Malayalam actress Rajini Chandy. The film is all set to hit screens on April 29.

The film’s production house shared the news on its social media page. “Motivational story #KathirMovie is certified clean "U" All set for release, Reservation open Now TN release by @sapphirestudi15 #KathirMovieFromApril29 #DhuvaragaStudios @ace_venkatesh @actorsanthosh @dhineshdir @arunraja3020 @iprashantpillai @ChandyRajini @Gokul_Offlz.

The plot revolves around a youngster, who moves to a city where his life turns upside down, but a chance meeting with a woman, changes his outlook towards life. The director had stated in an interview that though the film takes a serious turn, it has quite a few commercial elements for the entertainment factor.

Music for the film is by popular Malayalam composer Prashant Pillai. Lyrics for the songs are by Uma Devi and Karthik Netha. Prashanth had earlier taken to his social media page to say that the film has been a major dream of director Dhinesh Palanivel and actor Venkatesh. He wrote on his social media handle,”Kathir The Tamil film I worked on is releasing in theatres on April 29th by @sapphirestudi15 It's been a dream for the duo @ace_venkatesh and @dhineshdir. Cheers guys ! (sic)”

While Jayanth Sethumadhavan has cranked the camera, editing is handled by Deepak Dwarakanath. Quite a few portions of the film were shot in the Kadambur area of Eastern Ghats, that, too atop a mountain. According to a report, the crew members stayed in the houses of the locals during the shoot and canned the portions with bare minimum facilities. It was quite an experience for the entire cast and crew.
