Karthi’s Kaithi to be screened at International Indian Toronto Film Festival

Director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s film Kaithi starring Karthi and Naren in the lead roles, will be screened at the International Indian Film Festival in Toronto (IIFFT) this year. Going by the IIFFT’s website, the film has been scheduled for screening on August 12 at 6 pm. Lokesh Kanagaraj took to Twitter to share the news and expressed his joy.

Kaithi released alongside Bigil on Diwali 2019. Despite taking on Vijay’s Bigil, Kaithi emerged as a blockbuster film, thanks to its interesting storyline and intriguing screenplay.

The Kaithi team will give the event a miss due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Sharing the poster of Kaithi, Lokesh Kanagaraj wrote, “Glad to share this 🙂 Big thanx to the entire team (sic),” with a thumbs up emoticon.

Apart from Kaithi, Telugu film Jersey and Malayalam film Trance have also been selected for screening at the film festival. The International Indian Film Festival Toronto will begin from August 9 and will go on till August 15.

In the IIFFT’s website, the synopis of Kaithi read, “On a night where the entire police officers got into an immovable situation, a paroled convict is forced to help the police, so that he can see his daughter for the first time in life. How he helps the department forms the story of this action packed entertainer.”

IndiaToday.in reviewer Janani K rated the film 3.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, “Kaithi is a true-blue genre film and the action sequences are mind-blowing. It also gives its massy’ moments not just for Karthi’s Dilli but also for the villains. In short, Kaithi is a film that stays true to the screenplay and treats its characters with utmost respect. It goes on to show that no actor is superior to another just because of their stature.”

Kaithi features Karthi, Narain, Dheena, Arjun Das, George Maryan Ramana, Harish Uthaman and Hareesh Peradi in important roles. The film’s technical crew includes cinematographer Sathyan Sooryan, editor Philomin Raj and composer Sam CS.
