Colors Tamil, Viacom18’s Tamil entertainment channel, brought to screens the direct television premiere of Coffee.
The premiere is slated to take place on Sunday, November 27. Chronicling the life of a young woman, the film explores a sister’s quest to find her missing brother amidst corruption and human trafficking.
Directed by debutant Sai Krishna, the film features actor Ineya playing the lead role, along with real-life couple actor Rahul Dev and actor Mugdha.

Despite having lost her parents at a young age, Sathya (played by actor Ineya) never loses hope and aspires to become a cop. However, circumstances persuade her to become a cab driver and through this profession, she becomes the sole breadwinner of her only kin - her brother, Karthik. One fine day, Karthik happens to land a wonderful job in Bengaluru, but alas his happiness is short-lived as he discovers that he has fallen prey to a human trafficking ring, and gets abducted. Sathya soon begins her quest to find his whereabouts and stumbles upon the dark world of crime. Will Sathya be able to save her brother in the nick of time or will she lose the battle to the evil kingpin, Vikram (played by Rahul Dev), forms the rest of the plot.
Director Sai Krishna said, “With the direct television premiere of Coffee, I am elated to share this milestone achievement of my life with the audiences of Colors Tamil. I am further thrilled that my debut film centers around a strong female character where a woman fights all odds to save her beloved brother. The idea was to spotlight a woman’s strength and courage at its finest and offer a beacon of inspiration to audiences. Having turned to filmmaking from engineering, I am glad that I chose this path since the response received from the audiences for the initial stages for the posters and announcement of the film has been positive and overwhelming. I am certain that the direct television premiere will call for an exciting weekend altogether.”
Ineya said, “It was an exciting experience, especially to perform alongside veteran actors like Rahul Dev and Mugdha Godse, who have only offered me a plethora of options to learn from them. I am happy to portray a brave character like Sathya and undertaking the action scenes was challenging and fun at the same time. There are films that have had powerful female characters but Coffee is sure to elevate the experience for audiences a notch higher.”
