The director had said that his train journey in 1991 to Ghaziabad from Neyveli that lasted two days and one night provided him with a plot to write Thodari, which means train in Tamil. Prabhu, who is known for making films with newcomers or struggling actors, has cast A-lister Dhanush in this romantic thriller.

The film also stars Keerthi Suresh, who is on a roll in the south Indian film industry as she awaits back-to-back releases in the coming weeks. Thodari, which is touted to be India’s first movie to be filmed completely on a train, is co-produced by Prabhu in association with Sathya Jyothi Films.

The theatrical trailer of the film has created huge expectations among the moviegoers. The film is about a blooming romance between Keerthi, who seems to be a runaway, and Dhanush, a pantry worker on the train, amid a train hijack. Besides being visually rich, the trailer also packs a few trademark Dhanush moments that are guaranteed to enthral the actor’s fans at the theatre.
