Jyothika in Naachiyar

After acting in women oriented movie Magalir Mattum Jyothika once again playing lead role in Naachiyar.

In this director Bala’s Naachiyar, Jyothika plays the titular profanity-spouting commissioner of police whose mission is to secure justice for minor rape victim Arasi (Ivana). If rules are to be broken and suspects are to be tortured, so be it. The February 16 release has several problems – from its depiction of juvenile crime to its suggested punishment for rape – but what the movie does do is give Jyothika one of her most striking roles in a career that spans 43 movies.
