RJ Balaji, one of the very few daring actors in cinema, is currently awaiting the release of his humorous political satire LGK. The trailer of the film starring RJ Balaji and Priya Anand in the lead, directed by debutant KR Prabhu, released on Saturday. It crossed 2 million views in 24 hours.
The two minute trailer shows all the political mocking that has been done in the film, with a glimpse of the personalities who have been made fun of. RJ Balaji, from being the politician who let styrofoam afloat on a river to prevent water erosion, to the politician who is advised to prioritise animal lives over humans by Priya Anand, has perfectly portrayed the political incidents of the year 2018. He has used every chance to make fun of those in Indian politics who have been saying and doing unbelievable things.
The trailer even has a spoof scene with Arnab Goswami’s ‘the Nation wants to know’. It takes a heavy dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his fitness challenge, mocks EPS-OPS, Rajini-Kamal politics, and has made jallikattu references. On the whole, the trailer promises an unapologetic and funny film. AIADMK politician Nanjil Sampath plays a pivotal role, and television news anchor Zakka Jacob makes a special appearance in the film.
Lalgudi Karuppiah Gandhi or LKG is expected to be the next bold attempt at mocking the current political scenario in Tamil Nadu, after Amaidhi Padai which starred Sathyaraj and Manivannan in the lead roles.
Produced by Isari K Ganesh, the film’s story and screenplay is written by Balaji himself. Leon James has composed music, cinematography is by Vidhu Ayyanna, and editing by Anthony. Recently the film’s Tamil Nadu theatrical rights was bought by Sakthi Film Factory, who produced the Ajith-starrer Viswasam.
