Thrillers are becoming an interesting genre in Tamil films — a welcome departure from syrupy love tales. Director A. M. Baskar has conceived of a new plot — two stories within one, in his just launched SIM Card . A police officer arrests two suspects only to find that they are wannabe film directors. Unable to solve the mystery of a missing husband on his honeymoon, he asks the suspects to come up with all possible angles to the case to help him locate the victim. Two stories unfold in tandem to culminate in the solution in the final frames of the movie, or script in this case. Baskar is getting ready to shoot SIM Card in Kerala with his star cast of Ramprasad (son of Nallinikanth) and Aashika. “An interesting member of our team is a talented 15-year-old, Sadiq Hassan, who has scored five songs for the movie. We found him after an extensive search for a new face in this area,” informs Baskar.
