ZEE5 Global (https://www.zee5.com/), the world’s largest streaming platform for South Asian content, marks the world digital premiere of Jayam Ravi starrer blockbuster, ‘Agilan’. After a successful run at the box office, the film directed by N. Kalyanakrishnan will be available to stream on ZEE5 Global in Tamil.
Exploring the thriller genre through a neo-noir approach, the movie will see Jayam in a dual role as a father and son. He will play the role of Agilan, a cutthroat crane operator, who will stop at nothing to reign supreme over the Indian Ocean’s seedy underworld. With his access to the harbour, Agilan smuggles drugs and other contraband in and out of the country for a kingpin named Paranthaman (Hareesh Peradi). When an opportunity arises, Agilan goes all out to win the title of the ‘King of the Indian Ocean’ by pulling off a high-stake mission despite having a stringent and maniacal special officer Gokul Mehta (Chirag Jani) on his tail. But as his twisted journey unfolds, his surprising backstory adds a whole new dimension to his villainous deeds.
Produced by Screen Scene Media Entertainment, the film also stars Priya BhavaniShankar, Harish Uthaman, Tany Ravichandran, Chirag Jani, Hareesh Peradi, Tarun Arora, Madhusudhan Rao, among others. Agilan marks writer-director Kalyanakrishnan’s third collaborative effort with Jayam Ravi. With Vivek Anand handling cinematography, N Ganesh Kumar in charge of editing and Sam CS responsible for music, Agilan makes for a compelling watch.
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said, “Our ever-expanding Tamil library has brought before global viewers an array of titles that range from action to drama to romance to comedy, making ZEE5 Global the ultimate platform to access the biggest Tamil blockbusters and original shows. Continuing with the commitment, we bring the world digital premiere of Agilan. With its enigmatic storyline and riveting action, the movie is sure to keep viewers hooked.”
Director N. Kalyanakrishnan said, “Working on Agilan has been an exhilarating experience – from writing and directing to promoting and releasing this film, it has been a hands-on job, but I have enjoyed every bit of it. I am glad that I had the support of a terrific cast and crew who went along with my vision and gave it their all, including Jayam with whom this is my third collaboration. After its run at the box office, Agilan is now streaming on ZEE5 Global. I hope that our global audience give it a chance and enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed making it”.
Actor Jayam Ravi said, “Agilan gave me an opportunity to play a crane-operator on a port, portray a grey role and work again with N. Kalyanakrishnan. So, all in all, it gave a chance to portray something new and unexplored while having the comfort of working with a friend cum director. I am happy that I took on this project and believed in the vision of my director as it pushed me to experiment. Now with the film streaming on ZEE5 Global, I urge the viewers to watch our labour of love and get in on a high-adrenaline-ride”.
