More about Jigarthanda DoubleX

Jigarthanda Double X is the standalone sequel of the 2014 film by the same name, which featured Bobby Simha and Siddharth in the lead roles. DoubleX, however, features Raghava Lawrence and SJ Suryah in the lead roles and also has an ensemble cast including Nimisha Sajayan, Shine Tom Chacko, Ilavarasu, Naveen Chandra, and many more. 


The film was described by the makers as a Pandyaa Western. The film deals with an aspiring filmmaker and a hardened gangster whose paths intertwine.

Jigarthanda DoubleX has been bankrolled by Stone Bench Films, in collaboration with Five Star Creations and Invenio Origins. The music for the film has been composed by Santhosh Narayanan, marking his seventh collaboration with Karthik Subbaraj. The camera for the film has been cranked by Tirru.
