Aditi, who was lastly seen playing a journalist in Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, will next be seen in Psycho, a psychological thriller film by Mysskin starring Udhayanithi Stalin in the lead.
The first look poster and the film of Jail, featured a ‘local’ GV Prakash Kumar who was seen drunk either with a group of gana musicians, or with a group of hi-fi girls.
According to speculations, the film is based on the difficulties faced by the urban poor who shift out of their slums for rehabilitation. Placed out of the city, these housing settlements are usually criticized for becoming vertical ghettos that further isolate the dwellers from economically stronger sections.
Produced by Krikes Cine Creations, the film is a first time acting collaboration between the actor and director. GV Prakash had earlier made his debut as a music composer in Vasanthabalan’s critically acclaimed Veyil which released in 2006, and received a National Award under ‘The Best Feature Film’ category.
Jail will be a comeback film for the director after the 2014 historical musical drama Kaaviya Thalaivan, starring Siddharth and Prithviraj in lead roles, which failed to perform well at the box office.
