Yashoda, Samantha’s thriller, is all set to release in five languages on November 11. There is good buzz for this film, thanks to the stunning trailer that has gone viral with audiences across the country. Audiences are eager to watch Samantha’s performance on the big screen, more so after realizing that the actress has quite a bit of action segments in the narrative shot lavishly. In addition to the stunts, the makers promise abundant emotion as well.
The film, directed by Hari and Harish, is bankrolled by Sivalenka Krishna Prasad under Sridevi Movies. The thriller has an ensemble cast comprising Unni Mukundan, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Rao Ramesh, Murali Sharma, Kalpika Ganesh, Sri Divya Sripada, Madhurima Narla and others, to name a few. With music by Mani Sharma, Yashoda has cinematography by M Sukumar and art direction by Ashok. It is edited by Marthand K Venkatesh.
The trailer reveals that Yashoda revolves around a surrogate mother. Though commercial surrogacy is banned in India, the film sheds light on a conspiracy in a world where commercial surrogacy is very much prevalent. Yashoda happens to be one of the surrogate mothers, who joins a facility, which takes care of several other surrogate mothers, who are hired to birth the children of influential people.
Yashoda is seen stumbling upon something suspicious and takes things into her own hands, and finds herself trapped in a dangerous situation. The trailer also shows the actor engaging in a few intense stunts, where she hints about being on a mission to unearth the criminals behind those who ill-treat surrogate mothers. The titular character joins the facility after being offered a huge sum of money.
In the promos, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar makes an impactful presence as a shrewd boss who has a key role in the conspiracy surrounding surrogacy. Unni Mukundan, a medico, plays Yashoda’s love interest. Rao Ramesh as a crooked politico promises another pathbreaking act in Yashoda. Rakshit Shetty, Varun Dhawan, Vijay Deverakonda, Dulquer Salmaan were among the lead stars who unveiled the film’s trailer across multiple languages.
Despite being detected with an auto-immune condition, the film’s lead Samantha won hearts by coming forward to dub for the film and also promoting it for a day during this week. Yashoda looks like a twist-minute thriller offering a chilling take on surrogacy and motherhood. This is Samantha’s second theatrical release of the year after the Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara starrer Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal.
