Killadi is a 2015 Indian Tamil action movie directed by A. Venkatesh, and produced by Salem Chandrasekharan. It stars Bharath and Nila in the lead roles, while Vivek and Roja play pivotal roles. After beginning production in 2006, the film went through production troubles before releasing on 30 January 2015.
The project was first announced in September 2006, when Salem Chandrasekharan announced that he had signed Bharath and director Venkatesh to work together in a film titled Killadi. In a press meet, the producer noted that the film would proceed simultaneously alongside his other production, Vetrimaaran’s Desiya Nendunchalai 47 starring Dhanush. Bharath began shooting the film alongside Koodal Nagar and Nepali, delaying his schedules for the other films to maintain his look for Killadi. However in 2007, the producer ran into financial problems and postponed his two projects indefinitely.
In December 2009, the producer announced that the film would continue its shoot but it was held back by the director’s involvement in other films, Maanja Velu, Vaada and Vallakottai, prompting further delays. The film only picked up again in 2013 and was readied for release, with an extended separate comedy track featuring Vivek and Cell Murugan inserted and extensively shot. Further promotions were advertised by the team throughout 2014, before the film was released in January 2015.
Dharani (Bharath), an intrepid college student, drops Anjali (Nila), who is running away from home to escape a marriage with her rowdy uncle Bhavani (Vincent Asokan), at the bus stand but Bhavani and her arrogant mother Angayarkanni (Roja) mistake him for her lover. Now, Dharani and his family become their targets but they hardly realize that he is more than a match for them.
