‘Kaithi’ starring Karthi in the lead had hit screens during the last Diwali season. Despite facing stiff competition from Vijay’s ‘Bigil’, ‘Kaithi’ had a glorious run at the box office thanks to the highly positive word of mouth from the public. It was director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s second film and he managed to impress one and all.
The biggest highlight of ‘Kaithi’ was it was a pure action film sans any unnecessary hindrances like songs, romance or a separate comedy track. Critics and commoners unanimously praised the film and it emerged as a blockbuster success. The film ends on a cliffhanger with a potential opening for a second part. Both Karthi and the makers had announced that a sequel is on the cards.
As of now, it remains to be seen if the Hindi version starring Ajay Devgn will be a faithful remake without any unwanted commercial elements.
