Kaththi (English: Knife) is a 2014 Indian Tamil-language action film written and directed by AR Murugadoss.[1][2][3] The film features Vijay and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in the lead roles while Sathish, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Tota Roy Chowdhury play supporting roles.[4][5] The film focuses on the attempts made by a petty thief Kathiresan (Vijay), the look-alike of a jailed hydrology graduate Jeevanandham (Vijay), to lead a rebellion by farmers from the latter's village, Thanoothu. Kathiresan helps them fight against Chirag (Mukesh), the owner of a soft drink company who has exploited Thanoothu's water resources for his own profit.[1][3][6] Produced by Allirajah Subaskaran and K. Karunamoorthy under their production company Lyca Productions, the soundtrack and score were composed by Anirudh Ravichander.[4] George C. Williams and A. Sreekar Prasad were in charge of the cinematography and editing respectively.[4]

Produced on a budget of 700 million,[7][b] Kaththi was released on 22 October 2014 and received generally positive reviews.[9][10] It was commercially successful, grossing 1.3 billion worldwide.[11][b] The film won 14 awards from 33 nominations; its direction, story, screenplay, performances of the cast members, music, choreography and stunt direction have received the most attention from award groups.
