Kaatrin Mozhi, the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu (2017) that stars Jyothika in the lead role, will be released on October 18. Kaatrin Mozhi is being directed by Radha Mohan, who has previously helmed the comedy Abhiyum Naanum (2008) and the hijacking-based thriller Payanam (2011).
Tumhari Sulu, directed by Suresh Triveni and starring Vidya Balan, is the story of an enterprising housewife who charms her way into a radio station and bags the job of a late-night jockey. Jyothika plays Mozhi, the Tamil version of Sulu. The character’s name is a nod to Radha Mohan’s 2007 movie, which stars Jyothika as a hearing impaired woman.
Vidharth and Lakshmi Manchu play Mozhi’s husband and boss respectively. National Film Award-winning editor KL Praveen and cinematographer Mahesh Muthusamy are part of the crew. Pon Parthiban has written the Tamil dialogue.
