Sivakarthikeyan has his knives out in the first look of Nelson Kumar's upcoming thriller Doctor
Doctor features an ensemble such as Priyanka Mohan, Yogi Babu, Ilavarasu, Archana and Vinay
The first look of Sivakarthikeyan from the upcoming film Doctor has been released. The still sees a bespectacled Sivakarthikeyan in a crisp formal attire majestically sitting on a chair with bloody gloves and a scalpel in his hands. Quite opposite to the title of the movie, the poster sheds off the regular tropes of white coat and stethoscopes for a doctor, but leaves with an intriguing notion which sees the actor surrounded by scalpels, blades and scissors.
The first look poster was released to mark the birthday of Sivakarthikeyan, who turned 35 today (17 February). Written and directed by Nelson Dilip Kumar, the plot details of Doctor are kept under wraps. The film's music is scored by Anirudh Ravichander, and it marks the music director's fifth collaboration with the star after the films Ethir Neechal, Maan Karate, Remo, and Velaikkaran.

Kuruthi Aattam is a fragmented tale about betrayal and revenge that suffers from inconsistent writing and haphazard execution.
Mani Ratnam’s Roja, which catapulted him to national fame, stands out because its eponymous lead is undeterred by tragedies, and fights on till she has achieved her goal.
