Naachiyaar is an upcoming South Indian Tamil action drama film produced and directed by Bala, featuring Jyothika and G. V. Prakash Kumar in the lead roles. Featuring music composed by Ilaiyaraaja and cinematography by Eashwar, the film began production during March 2017.
We see Jyothika in a never before seen avatar, sporting a giant red bindhi in some shots and swearing in Tamil as a police officer in another. Bala’s films often feature a grim, sordid reality that’s a far cry from the prettiness of mainstream cinema. GV Prakash’s make-up and look for the film shows us that Naachiyar will be in Bala’s trademark style. GV Prakash’s character seems to be a criminal on the run from the police.
The film has music by Ilaiyarajaa and the background score in the teaser sets up the mood for a thriller. Jyothika has played the villain in Pachchaikili Muthucharam and Chandramukhi. Although the actor was at the top of her career when doing these films, she still took the risk. Bala’s last few films have tanked at the box office and he will be looking to revive his fortunes with Naachiyar. Produced by B Studios and EON Studious, this is Jyothika’s first film since her comeback which isn’t a home production. The actor has also signed up to perform in Mani Ratnam’s next.
Its reported that shooting is at final stage and the team is planning for September 2018 theatrical release
