“Thani Oruvan”, helmed by Mohan Raja, not only reshaped the trajectory of Jayam Ravi’s acting career but also solidified its position as a benchmark in the action-thriller genre of Tamil cinema. With the film’s antagonist, Siddharth Abhimanyu (played impeccably by Arvind Swami), receiving much acclaim, speculations regarding a sequel have been rife ever since the film’s release. Fans can now rejoice, as Mohan Raja and Jayam Ravi have officially unveiled the promo video for “Thani Oruvan 2.”
In the inaugural installment, audiences witnessed the relentless pursuits of Mithran IPS (portrayed by Jayam Ravi) as he grappled with the sinister Siddharth Abhimanyu. With the promo video of the sequel suggesting a plot where the antagonist is on the hunt for Mithran, the stakes have undoubtedly been raised. A pivotal ingredient to the original’s success was the intricately crafted character of Siddharth Abhimanyu. Thus, it remains a topic of much speculation as to how Mohan Raja will sculpt the antagonist in the sequel.
As per the promo, fans can look forward to the return of Nayanthara in her role as Mahima, Mithran’s love interest and a forensic expert. The musical realm of the movie witnesses a change, with Sam CS taking the baton from Hip Hop Aadhi. Interestingly, the YouTube description of the promo alludes to Mohan Raja donning the actor’s hat, indicating the director’s foray into acting alongside his brother in the sequel. Further casting details remain under wraps.
Set to be bankrolled by AGS Entertainment, the film’s shooting is slated to commence shortly.
