Kuttram 23 has been adapted from a novel by popular Tamil pulp fiction writer Rajesh Kumar which looks at medical crime.

Arun Vijay’s Kuttram 23 is the talk of the town. The extremely well-made medical thriller has gone beyond impressing critics and audiences alike, and has earned the praise of superstar Rajinikanth and 2.o director Shankar. On Sunday, Shankar wrote on his Twitter page that the film is very engaging with all the right ingredients and that he really liked Arun Vijay’s performance. The team is buoyed by Shankar’s words because he usually doesn’t heap praise on any film unless he really likes it.

Directed by Arivazhagan, the film throws the spotlight on a medical crime and Arun Vijay plays a cop who investigates the case. Arun Vijay, who has been desperate for a hit for a long time, finally tasted success with the film which has been adapted from a novel by popular Tamil pulp fiction writer Rajesh Kumar.

As the team continues to enjoy the film’s success, talks have already been initiated for Telugu remake. Apparently, actor Sudheer Babu has expressed interest to star in the remake and has already reached out to the producer. It also has to be seen whether the film will be made in Hindi or not.
