Also starring Dancing Rose Shabeer, Santhosh Prathap, Miya George, The Road is directed by Arun Vaseegaran
Trisha has had a largely memorable 2023, with three Tamil releases and coming on board for two other biggies - Vidaa Muyarchi and Thug Life. Apart from multi-starrers Leo and Ponniyin Selvan 2, she headlined an impressive thriller titled The Road. Arun Vaseegaran made his directorial debut with the film bankrolled by AAA Cinemaa Private Limited. The film released in theatres on October 6 globally.
Nearly a month after its theatrical run, garnering good responses from critics and at the box office, The Road is now out on OTT. Leading regional streaming platform aha acquired its post-theatrical digital rights for the Telugu and Tamil versions and decided to premiere the film on Friday. Dancing Rose Shabeer, Santhosh Prathap, Miya George, MS Bhaskar are also part of the film’s cast.
The Road takes off when a couple meets with an accident on the National Highway. The story revolves around Meera (Trisha), a pregnant woman who lives with her husband and son. Her life goes topsy turvy when her husband and son fall prey to an orchestrated accident, shattering Meera’s personal life. Another subplot is centred on Maya (Shabeer Kallarakkal), a professor revered for his integrity.
How are the destines of Meera and Maya intertwined? How does Meera take charge of her life? The Road keeps you invested with a gripping premise, emotions and a few solid twists. Vivek Prasanna, Vela Ramamoorthy, Laxmi Priya are also part of the lineup. Sam CS has scored the music for the film which is edited by A R Shivaraj. KG Venkatesh cranked the camera for the thriller.
Phoenix Prabhu supervised the stunts and Shiva Yadhav is the art director. “The Road is, by far, Trisha’s best outing in a heroine-led movie, because it does not turn her into a superwoman who can do no wrong. Instead, her vulnerability and ability to connect the dots saves her skin more than once,” OTTplay.com's critic wrote about the film at the time of its release.
