Speculations are rife that the basic plotline of Thala 57 is inspired from the Hollywood blockbuster Taken 2 which starred Liam Neeson as the retired CIA agent. In Thala 57, Ajith plays the role of an international investigating agent and Kajal Aggarwal plays the role of his wife.
Sources say Kajal Aggarwal gets abducted by a group of criminals and how Ajith Kumar tracks them down and rescues her forms the story. Akshara Haasan will be seen as Ajith’s colleague in the film.
Directed by Siva and produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, Thala 57 also has a third heroine in a special cameo. Anirudh Ravichander composes music for the project. The shooting for the film is currently underway in Europe.
