The censor board has paved way for the worldwide release of actor Dhanush’s Kodi by clearing the film with a clean U certificate. The film will now release as scheduled on October 28, clashing with Karthi’s Kaashmora.
The film, directed by Durai Senthilkumar, is a political thriller and has Dhanush in a double role for the first time in the actor’s career. This year, Tamil filmmakers managed to entertain the audience with movies from different genres, including sci-fi, slasher genre and period films. However, a movie that explores the political equations with dollops of love, was missing and Kodi is likely to fill the void.
Director Senthilkumar holds a good winning record at the box office. His previous hits like Ethir Neechal and Khaki Sathai had Sivakarthikeyan in the lead role and were produced by Dhanush’s home production Wunderbar Films. Kodi is bankrolled by director Vetrimaaran’s Grass Root Film Company along with Escape Artists Motion Pictures, and has music from Santhosh Narayana.
Kodi, meanwhile, is also an important film for Dhanush, given that his last outing, Thodari, fizzled out at the box office.
