Vidharth who made a splash with Prabhu Solomon’s Mynaa has gone on to get a firm foothold in Kollywood with a number of movies in his kitty. Now, in a movie titled Aal, produced by Vidiyal Raju, the actor plays a harried man whose life turns upside down once he gets a mysterious phone call.

An action thriller directed by Susi Ganesan’s former assistant Anand Krishnan, Aal is set in the Himalayan foothills of Sikkim. The story revolves around a teacher from Sikkim who comes to Chennai to meet his lover, played by Haarthika Reddy. He gets a call from a complete stranger who leads him on a chase that turns out to be a harrowing experience. The story is set in a 24-hour format from morning to evening. Vidharth plays a suave individual and in a departure from his usual rural roles, he gets to look dapper in a suit.

Three cameras set up by S Uthaykumar were used for the film, which has been shot in 55 days. Apart from Sikkim, the film has been shot in the densely populated areas of Chennai, like the Kalyanapuram Kuppam, Walltax Road, Basin Bridge and in front of the LIC building and Spencer Plaza.
