Kidaari (English: The rough and tough one)[a] is a 2016 Tamil-language action-mystery film[2] directed by Prasath Murugesan, starring M. Sasikumar and Nikhila Vimal in the leading roles. The film, which is also produced by Sasikumar, features Napoleon, Vela Ramamoorthy, Suja Varunee, and Hareesh Peradi in supporting roles. Darbuka Siva composed the music. This film released on 2 September 2016.



Sasikumar began work on the film directed by Prasath Murugesan during March 2016 in Chennai.[3] Sasikumar attained the title Kidaari from Samuthirakani, who had previously registered the title when making Kitna.[4] The film was shot briskly over the month of May 2016, lasting 62 days in total, with the makers announcing that the film was entering its final phase during June 2016.[5][6]


Darbuka Siva composed the soundtrack. One of the songs, "Vandiyila Nellu Varum", was earlier featured in the debut album of La Pongal, a musical project founded by Siva.[7][8]


Baradwaj Rangan of The Hindu said, "This murder mystery needed more than flavour. It needed focus."[2]
