Lokesh Kanagaraj seems to be the most sought-after filmmaker in Tamil cinema right now.

Kaithi revolves around an ex-convict who is on his way to meet his daughter, for the first time. The movie, which released on Deepavali last year, opened to unanimous positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, and was particularly praised for its raw filmmaking.

In October last year, actor Karthi in a press meet revealed that talks for a sequel to Kaithi are well underway.
