Sequel on cards for Vijay Sethupathi’s Soodhu Kavvum!
Tamil film producer CV Kumar is often crediting for spotting many young talents and backing films with fresh subjects. During the phase from 2012-2016, his banner Thirukumaran Entertainment produced several quality entertainers like ‘Attakathi’, ‘Pizza’, ‘ Soodhu Kavvum’, ‘Thegidi’, ‘Mayavaan’, ‘Mundaasupatti’, ‘Indru Netru Naalai’, ‘Irudhi Suttru’, ‘Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum’ and ‘Iraivi’.
Among these aforementioned films, three of them are now getting sequels. ‘Thegidi’, ‘Maayavan’ and ‘Soodhu Kavvum’ are the three films. Last day, Thirukumaran Entertainment had conducted a poll on their official Twitter handle to know the expectations of audiences on the sequels, and as expected ‘Soodhu Kavvum’ topped the poll by a big margin.
‘Soodhu Kavvum’ directed by Nalan Kumarasamy was released in 2013. It is a quirky crime comedy that starred Vijay Sethupathi, Bobby Simha, Ashok Selvan, Ramesh Thilak, Karunakaran and Sanchita Shetty in the lead roles. The film was a huge commercial success. Critics also heaped praise on the film for its unique storytelling and treatment.
‘Soodhi Kavvum’ is a landmark film in Vijay Sethupathi’s career. The film still enjoys tremendous popularity among the audience and the recent Twitter poll just proves it. It will be interesting to see if the whole cast will be retained for the second part.
Script works for the sequel is nearing the finishing stage and an official word is expected to be made soon.
