Hardened as they are by relentless violence, the two are
bound by friendship, which gives meaning to their otherwise monotonous life. But
there are twists leading to an explosive climax. Richard, whose film career
started with Kadir's "Kadhal Virus," went on to do "Girivalam," "Koothu"
(Malayalam) and "A film by Aravind" (Telugu). " `Naalai' will showcase my talent
as an action hero and also my ability as an actor," says Richard, brother of
Shalini Ajith. ``The director has taken care to shape the screenplay. The
viewers will enjoy my work," he says with confidence.
