“Jigarthanda” is about a budding filmmaker (Siddharth), who decides to make a film based on the life of a Madurai gangster ‘Assault’ Sethu (played by Simhaa). Things go awry when he gets caught snooping on the mafia. Besides these two actors, Lakshmi Menon, Karunakaran and Guru Somasundaram featured in the film.
The film, which was praised for being clever and inventive but also lacked cohesion, won two National Film Awards for best supporting actor for Simha and best editing for Vivek Harshan. According to the video shared by Karthik, “Jigarthanda 2” is in the scripting stage. Plot and cast details about the sequel have not been revealed.
