MUMBAI, India—22 April,
2022—Prime Video today announces the worldwide premiere of Arun Matheswaran’s revenge action-drama Saani Kaayidham. The film has been produced under the banner of Screen Scene Media and features Keerthy Suresh and Selvaraghavan in lead roles. The story is of a generational curse coming true when injustice is inflicted upon Ponni (played by Keerthy Suresh) and her family. As seen in the teaser promo, she seeks vengeance along with Sangaiah (played by Selvaraghavan), with whom she shares a bitter past. The Tamil film will premiere worldwide exclusively on Prime Video starting 6 May, and will also be available as Chinni in Telugu and as Saani Kaayidham in Malayalam.
