Rathindran R Prasad, who made Inmai, a short from Netflix's anthology Navarasa, is geared up for Boomika, which is set for a release on the streaming platform from August 23. The film, which has Aishwarya Rajesh playing the lead, has been bankrolled by Karthik Subbaraj's Stone Bench Films and Passion Studios. The project, which was announced last year, was intended to be an OTT release from the beginning. On Sunday, a few hours before the film's television premiere, the makers released a sneak peek of four-minute duration which featured actresses Surya Ganapathy and Madhuri Jain.
The intriguing sneak peek has both the actors indulging in a fun conversation over a man. Set against the backdrop of a hill station, the two of them, sitting inside a dark, comfy room, are seen enthusiastically drooling over a handsome man who they have met some time ago. They click a selfie and sends it to him, and in return, ask him to send his latest picture on phone. He refuses to send his picture and comes up with a reason for it, which sends shivers down their spine. What follows later leaves you thrilled, wanting for more.
Vidhu, Pavel Navageethan, Ayaan Abhishek and Avantika Vandanapu play important roles in the movie, which has cinematography by Roberto Zazzara and music by Prithvi Chandrasekhar. Anand Geraldin had edited the horror film, which has art direction by R Mohan and stunt choreography by Don Ashok.
According to the makers, the movie deals with exploitation of nature, and is different from the usual run-of-the-mill horror movies. Earlier, Karthik Subbaraj's Mercury which had Prabhudheva playing the lead, had a similar plot. Rathindran's first project, Idhu Vedhalam Sollum Kathai, has been lying in the cans for a long time, and Boomika is his first full-fledged release. On the other hand, Aishwarya's last outing, Thittam Irandu, was premiered on SonyLIV almost a month ago.
