Ajith will have his Kireedam release this summer amidst huge expectations. Directed by debutant AL Vijay, the film stars Ajith, Trisha, Vivek, Saranya, Cochin Haneefa and Raj Kiran in significant roles. Inspired by a blockbuster Malayalam film of the late 1980s starring Mohanlal of the same title, Kireedam is an action based family entertainer.

Ajith plays an ordinary young man who loves his family and aspires to become a police officer. Trisha plays his love interest and is a college student. Raj Kiran plays Ajith's father and an upright policeman. He aspires to see his son become a top cop one day. Raj Kiran and Ajith, it is said, shared a tremendous rapport during the shoot of Kireedam. The movie is set in a small town in Tamil Nadu. A tale of father-son sentiments, the movie has Saranya playing Ajith's mother. Ajay Kumar, a debutant from Hyderabad plays the villain. Vijay has shot the film extensively in Vishakapatinam, Rajahmundry and Chennai. Says Vijay, "It is not really the remake of Malayalam film Kireedam. Just the theme is inspired by the movie."

"Working with a seasoned actor like Ajith for my debut film is a great experience. He was very co-operative and has contributed his best. His dedication and commitment to excel in the role deserves special mention," adds Vijay.

GV Prakash (AR Rahman's nephew) has come up with five catchy songs for the movie. The young music director hogged the limelight after a successful debut in Veyyil. Thiru has cranked the camera, art is by Selva and editing is by Anthony. Kireedam is expected for release on 1 May, 2007 coinciding with Ajith's birthday.
