More about Jigarthanda DoubleX
Jigarthanda Double X is the standalone sequel of the 2014 film by the same name, which featured Bobby Simha and Siddharth in the lead roles. DoubleX, however, features Raghava Lawrence and SJ Suryah in the lead roles and also has an ensemble cast including Nimisha Sajayan, Shine Tom Chacko, Ilavarasu, Naveen Chandra, and many more.
The film was described by the makers as a Pandyaa Western. The film deals with an aspiring filmmaker and a hardened gangster whose paths intertwine. The film also has a major socio-political undertone to it, which, however, is not brought in forcefully. The film has received excellent reviews from fans and critics upon release and is even said to be Raghava Lawrence’s best performance to date.
Jigarthanda DoubleX has been bankrolled by Stone Bench Films, in collaboration with Five Star Creations and Invenio Origins. The music for the film has been composed by Santhosh Narayanan, marking his seventh collaboration with Karthik Subbaraj. The camera for the film has been cranked by Tirru.
