Prabhu Solomon, the director, who is known for making content-oriented films, is back with a romantic thriller in which Keerthy Suresh plays the love interest of the "Kolaveri di" hitmaker.
Tamil movie Thodari (Rail in Telugu) starring Dhanush and Keerthi Suresh has made a decent start on the day of its release, Thursday i.e. September 22, according to early trends. According to a Tamil box office reports, the movie grossed an estimated Rs 4.32 crore at the box office on day one of its release in Tamil Nadu.
The movie was initially expected to release in May this year. However, it was delayed multiple times due to unknown reasons. The film director Prabhu Solomon has super hits like ‘Kumki’ and ‘Mynaa’ to his credit. This film is said to be inspired by real-life incidents.
The director had said that his train journey in 1991 to Ghaziabad from Neyveli that lasted two days and one night provided him with a plot to write Thodari, which means train in Tamil.
Thodari is a romantic film that is set in a train. Dhanush plays the role of a pantry boy named (Poochiappan) and Keerthy Suresh enacts the role of a make-up artist of an actress played by Pooja Jhaveri. Harish Uthaman has done the character of a commando.
Poochiappan spots Saroja (Keerthy Suresh) for the first time in a train and it is a love at first sight for him. A human error puts the 700-odd passengers travelling in a train along with a Union minister, played by Radha Ravi, in trouble. In short, the film is about a blooming romance between Keerthi Suresh, who seems to be a runaway, and Dhanush, a pantry boy on the train, amid a hijack.
