Thirunaal (transl. 'Holy day') is a 2016 Indian Tamil-language action film written and directed by P. S. Ramnath and produced by M. Senthil Kumar. The film stars Jiiva and Nayantara in their second collaboration after E. The music was composed by Srikanth Deva. The film released on 5 August 2016.


"Blade" Ganesh (Jiiva) is a henchman for a local villain named Naaga (Sharath Lohitashwa) and is loyal to him without any reason. Vithya (Nayanthara) is the daughter of a local factory owner (Joe Malloori). She falls for Ganesh after he saves her from a kidnapping. Vithya's father arranges for her to marry another man, but everyone learns about the love affair between Vithya and Ganesh, which creates animosity between Naaga and Vithya's father. Blade gets caught between supporting Vithya's father and standing up to Naaga. Blade saves the day by killing Naaga.



The film was first reported in November 2014, when Jiiva had agreed terms to work on a village-centric film directed by P. S. Ramnath, who had previously made Ambasamudram Ambani (2010).[1] Nayanthara signed on to appear in the film in April 2015, while Srikanth Deva was confirmed as the film's music director.[2] The film began its first schedule in Kumbakonam in May 2015 at a grand Agraharam set. The films trailer was released on for Diwali .[3] The shooting for the film was completed by the end of August 2015 and the post production work thereafter started.[4]
