NAYIKA

Director Jayaraj's latest film is an exploration of a female actor's place in tinsel town, the grime behind the glitz and glamour, the short life span of a leading lady and the emotional turmoil that she is often forced to endure. Yesteryear star Sarada plays the lead role of Gracy, a heroine who walks away from the glamour of tinsel town and becomes a recluse. Jayaram plays the chocolate hero (Anand) and Padmapriya stars as Gracy's younger self. Mamta Mohandas plays a documentary filmmaker named Aleena who stumbles upon Gracy's story while researching for another story.

There's a lot riding on this Selvaraghavan film, the director's fourth with his actor-brother Dhanush. The music by G.V. Prakash Kumar is a huge hit, and the brothers are known to scorch the screen when they work together. The film, which also stars Richa Gangopadhyay, is said to be a romantic drama.
