Karthi 27: Karthi and Arvind Swami team up for Premkumar’s next film

The shooting of Karthi’s 27th film, tentatively titled Karthi 27, has begun today in Kumbakonam. The film, directed by Premkumar of 96 fame, stars Karthi and Arvind Swami in the lead roles. The film is said to be a 30-day single stretch schedule in Kumbakonam, followed by other locations. The entire film is expected to be wrapped up in 85 days of shoot.

Karthi 27 is produced by 2D Entertainment, the banner of Karthi’s brother Suriya. The film has music by Govind Vasantha, who also composed the soulful songs for 96. The cinematography is by Mahendhiran Jayaraju, who was the associate cameraman for 96. The rest of the cast and crew details are yet to be revealed.

Karthi 27 is the second collaboration between Karthi and Arvind Swami, after the 2015 action thriller Thani Oruvan, where they played brothers. Karthi 27 is also the second film for Premkumar, who made his directorial debut with 96, the romantic drama starring Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha. 96 was a huge hit and received critical acclaim for its realistic portrayal of love and nostalgia.

Karthi is currently awaiting the release of his 25th film Japan, a heist thriller directed by Raju Murugan. The film is slated to hit the screens tomorrow for the Diwali weekend. Karthi plays a gold smuggler in the film, which also features Anjali, Prakash Raj, and Sathish in pivotal roles. Karthi is also shooting for his 26th film, a comedy entertainer directed by Nallan Kumarasamy of Soodhu Kavvum fame. The film has Krithi Shetty as the female lead.

Karthi 27 is expected to be a different genre for both Karthi and Premkumar, and the fans are eagerly waiting for more updates on the film. The official title and the first look poster of the film are likely to be unveiled on the occasion of Diwali.
