Dha Dha 87 is a 2019 Indian Tamil language action romantic drama film written and directed by Vijay Sri G on his directorial debut.[1] The film stars Kamal Haasan's elder brother Charuhasan and Keerthy Suresh's maternal grandmother Saroja[disambiguation needed] in the main lead roles along with old known comedian Janagaraj in an important role. The film is touted to be a spiritual continuation to the 1988 film Sathya which starred Kamal Haasan in the lead role.[2] The film is also simultaneously dubbed in Hindi and the film is bankrolled by Kalai Cinemas. Leander Lee Marty has been roped into score music for the film. The film was released on 1 March 2019 and received extremely poor reviews from the critics due to its confusing plotline.[3][4]



The film titled Dha Dha 87 resembles that the lead actors Charuhasan (aged 87) and Saroja (aged 80) are playing the prominent roles in the film.[5] The official trailer of the film was released on 13 September 2018 and the official teaser was unveiled on 6 March 2018.[6][7] A new look poster which was released on 9 January 2019 confirmed the official release date of the movie on 25 January with a sentence spoofing Petta and Viswasam which are regarded as two biggest Tamil film releases of 2019.[8] The lead actor Charuhasan is noted to play the role of a local don in the film as the tile itself reflects it.[9][10]

The filmmakers roped in three newcomers including Kalakka Povathu Yaaru? fame Anand Pandi, Sri Pallavi and Anupallavi who would play supportive roles in the film.[11]
