They say you can choose your destiny, but you cannot choose your enemies. Such is the brutal story of two young men, who start off together on the right path but end up fighting a bloody battle at the cost of picking between their duty or destiny. Action, crime and drama with the underlying hint of a power play between two strong adversaries is the recipe for a perfect entertainer and the Indian super app for entertainment – MX Player brings viewers all this and more in their latest Tamil MX Original Series: Kuruthi Kalam.
Kuruthi Kalam is produced by Applause Entertainment in association with Arpad Cine Factory and the drama series has been written by Danush, K Mohan, Vignesh Karthick, Kishore Sankar and Kaviraj. The 13-episodic series is directed by Rajapandi and Danush, and the series launches exclusively on MX Player starting January 22.
The show revolves around two rival gangs, who, with a history of violence, rule the roost in Chennai. An upright youngster, Vijay (Played by Santhosh Prathap), is pulled into their never-ending power play and has to give up his hopes of becoming a police officer when he resorts to violence. As he rises in stature, his enemies also loom large, from his cold-blooded nemesis, Kumar (essayed by Ashok Kumar), to his once-best-friend, Sub Inspector Arun (Played by Soundara Raja).
Director Rajapandi said: “Crime dramas are a genre that audiences are loving these days and this web series depicts a wide range of emotions – from revenge, to betrayal, and sacrifice – it has an essence of all things entertainment.”
Danush said: “It’s a binge watch kind of format and I am grateful to all the cast and crew who have so beautifully managed to pack all this action and drama into the 13-episodic show.”
The riveting series also sees actors Marimuthu, Vincent Asokan, Srikanth, Sanam Shetty and Eden Kuriakose in pivotal roles as well.
