Rajavukku Check (Eng: Checkmate for King) is a 2020 Indian Tamil-language thriller film written and directed by Sai Rajkumar. The film stars Cheran in the lead role, Irfan as antagonist with actresses Srushti Dange, Sarayu and Nandana Varma in supporting roles. The film will feature music composed by Vinod Yajamaanyaa and cinematography by M. S. Prabhu. Cheran was cast in the lead role of the investigative thriller after some time away from films, and was Rajkumar’s first pick for the script.
The film began its shoot in early 2018 but production was briefly stopped owing to an industry-wide strike. The entire shoot, barring one song, was over by May 2018. The film was also delayed as a result of Cheran’s directorial commitments for the film, Thirumanam (2019).
Four criminals use the teenaged daughter of a cop to get back at him for having put them in prison. With his every action being watched, can he rescue her while being confined in his house?
