Arun Vijay’s latest release, Yaanai, is an action drama written and directed by Hari, who helmed the Singham series with actor Suriya. The film, which marks Arun Vijay and Priya Bhavani Shankar’s second collaboration, has been released with decent expectations.
The film is billed as a hit commercial drama with on-site commercial elements. The story revolves around PRV’s family, who live with his two wives and children. A family quarrel between the children of the two wives and an accidental death in the family send the situation out of control. What happens next between the families forms the heart of the film.
Meanwhile, the film was pirated within hours of its theatrical release. A few unscrupulous websites have copied high quality video links to the movie and shared them on the internet. When a film receives positive rhetoric, piracy is a big threat to the film’s box office performance.
Yaanai has Samuthirakani, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Ammu Abhirami, Yogi Babu, and VIS Jayapalan, among others, in prominent roles. The film’s cinematography is handled by Gopinath and editing by Anthony. GV Prakash Kumar scored the music for the film. Sakthivel, Vedikkaranpatti S produced the film under Drumsticks Productions.
The film is shot across Tamil Nadu in areas like Ramanathapuram, Rameshwaram, Thoothukudi, Palani and Karaikudi.
