Mani Ratnam’s next could be a social-thriller

New fangled experiments and exploring unique lines of plot with simple yet elegant projection – Mani Ratnam’s most intriguing formulae that instantly let us connect with whatever he delivers. While his previous outing ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ was a take on contemporary love story between an urban lad and fille, he has now taken a different route seemingly for his upcoming film yet to be titled. Initially, the maverick filmmaker had plans to make a multi-starrer revenge tale that was reportedly to feature Karthi, Dulquer Salmaan, Nithya Menen and Keerthi Suresh in lead roles.

Nevertheless, with the project delay and actors occupied with their prior commitments, it didn’t take off and apparently, the auteur chose to come up with a different plot. The untitled film featuring Karthi as a NRI-pilot and Sai Pallavi as a doctor was reported to be a love story that happens during a flight journey. But now there comes a soft twist that it could be a social thriller, which instigates more inquisitiveness.
