Halitha Shameem, who made her directorial debut with Poovarasam Peepee in 2014, shot to fame with the critically acclaimed film Sillu Karupatti in 2019. The director is now ready with her next film, titled Aelay.
The film’s trailer was released online on Wednesday and has garnered much positive attention. Hyped to be a neo-realistic comedy-drama, Aelay is set against a rural backdrop.
Aelay is purportedly based on the story of a father-son relationship, played by Samuthirakani and Manikandan K. The other actors in the cast are non-professionals, who are residents of the Manjunayakanpatti village in Tamil Nadu’s Dindugal district.
The entire film has been shot in the village in a single schedule, we hear. Aelay, which was slated for release in August last year, will now reportedly be released on February 12.
