The highly anticipated project, which is touted to be an action thriller, features Rajinikanth in the role of a jailer who is on a mission.
Director of Jailer

The director made his debut with the dark comedy Kolamaavu Kokila, starring Nayanthara in the lead role. The film became a commercial hit at the box office. His next film was Doctor, starring Sivakarthikeyan in the lead role opposite Priyanka Arul Mohan. The film became one of the biggest Tamil-language blockbusters. After that, he directed Thalapathy Vijay's Beast but it failed to perform well at the box office. Due to this, there were reports that Nelson was replaced to direct Rajinikanth's Jailer. But the superstar believed in him and reportedly delivered blockbuster content.
