It’s never easy for an actor to plan his next set of films after a blockbuster. Should one try to break the mould or give what the audiences expect or manage a bit of both? This is certainly true in the case of Vijay Antony’s career after Bichagadu. Right from Roshagadu to Yaman to Killer and Kaasi, his quest to explore newer horizons hasn’t ceased but they have not translated into box office successes.

His next major release in Telugu is Hatya (the dubbed version of his Tamil film Kolai), an investigative thriller where Vijay Antony is a cop. Ritika Singh plays the female lead in the film jointly produced by Kamal Bohra, G Dhananjayan, Pradeep B, Pankaj Bohra, Tan Sri Doraisingam Pillai, Siddhartha Shankar, RVS Ashok Kumar under Infiniti Film Ventures and Lotus Pictures.

Balaji K Kumar has written and directed the film whose motion poster was released in Tamil and Telugu earlier today. It introduces the audiences to the film’s premise revolving around the murder of Leila. The suspects include a boyfriend, photographer, manager, neighbour, agent. Or is there someone else in the picture too? The glimpse leaves us with a lot of questions.

Meenakshii Chaudhary plays the role of the murdered woman Leila and Ritika, as Sandhya, is another officer assisting Vijay Antony in the case. Murli Sharma, Siddhartha Shankar, Kishore Kumar, John Vijay, Arjun Chidambaram and Samkit Bohra also essay important roles in this twist-a-minute thriller. The premise is familiar and still juicy. In times when thrillers are ruling the roost, Hatya is worth the wait.

Sivakumar Vijayan is the cinematographer of the film that has music by Girishh Gopalakrishnan. Selva RK is the editor and K Aarusamy is the art director. Vijay Rathinam handles sound design with Shimona Stalin taking care of the costumes. Mahesh Mathew, as the stunt director, is also part of the crew. Vijay Antony is also making his directorial debut with the sequel to Bichagadu a.k.a Pichaikkaran.
