Uchathula Shiva (English: Shiva on the rise) is a 2016 Tamil action film directed by Jaypee, starring Karan and Neha Ratnakaran in the leading roles. Featuring music composed by VidyaSagar, the film is produced by Karan’s wife, Devi Karan and marks the actor’s first home production. The film had a theatrical release on 16 September 2016.
The film became Karan’s first home production, with the actor revealing that he chose to do a “light-hearted entertainer” rather than a serious film. Neha Ratnakaran was signed on to portray the leading female role in the film, which progressed throughout early 2016. The project also marked the return of composer Vidyasagar after a brief sabbatical from Tamil films.
An easy-going taxi driver, Shiva (Karan) gives out advice on hygiene and the need to be ‘professional’ to an idli vendor on street, thus establishing himself as someone with a humanitarian side, in the very first scene. Further, his conversation with Gnanasambandam (who plays himself) in a car and the way he talks to his over-concerned mother over phone (Kovai Sarala’s voice) brings him closer to the audience. However, within no time, things go haywire when the story actually kicks off.
Nila (Neha) is being chased by a prominent drug dealer (Naren) in the town, and Shiva comes to her rescue and offers a lift. He tries to contact people who are close to her to ensure safety. Little does he know that he is inviting trouble, as things start going beyond his control. What follows is an unexpected series of incidents.
