Karthi’s shocking role in Thambi with Jyothika revealed

Jeethu Joseph’s upcoming film, which sees Karthi and Jyotika share screen space for the first time, has been titled Thambi. The first look of the film was unveiled by Suriya on Twitter.

It may be recalled that the same title has earlier been used for Madhavan’s 2006 film with Seeman. Meanwhile, interesting details have emerged about the new Thambi.

While it is known that Karthi plays his real-life sister-in-law, Jyotika’s younger brother in the film, it has now emerged the actor will be portrayed as a con artiste in it.

“Karthi will be playing a con artiste, with shades of grey, in the film. He has a colourful character, and Jyotika’s role will be starkly opposite,” a source was quoted as saying by a TOI report.

The first look poster shows one half of Karthi and Jyotika’s facse. There’s also a police car in what appears to be the middle of a foggy road. The poster announces that the film will release in December this year.

Unveiling it, Suriya tweeted: “Here’s the first look of #Thambi #Donga #Jo & @Karthi_offl ‘s exciting next! #SurajSadanah ‘s debut production 👍🏼#JeethuJoseph #Sathyaraj @Viacom18Studios @ParallelMinds_ @govind_vasantha @AndhareAjit @rdrajasekar @Nikhilavimal1 #ThambiFirstLook #ThambiTeaserFromTomorrow.”

Govind Vasantha will compose music and RD Rajasekar will handle the cinematography. The film is jointly bankrolled by Viacom 18 and Parallel Minds Productions.

Apart from Jyotika and Karthi, the film also stars Sathyaraj, Nikhila Vimal, and 90 ML-fame Anson. The team has confirmed that Thambi will have a December release.
