Valimai (transl. Power) is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language action thriller film written and directed by H. Vinoth, and produced by Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor under Bayview Projects LLP. The film stars Ajith Kumar, Huma Qureshi and Kartikeya Gummakonda. The film's music is composed by Ghibran and Yuvan Shankar Raja with the former composing the film score and the latter composing the songs. The cinematography is performed by Nirav Shah and editing by Vijay Velukutty. This film marked the second collaboration between Ajith, Vinoth and Kapoor after Nerkonda Paarvai (2019). Vinoth wrote the script in mid-2018 even before production began, as Ajith initially declined the script and work on it later. Principal photography began in December 2019 in Hyderabad and was completed with February 2021, irrespective of production being disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Major portions of the film were shot across Chennai and Hyderabad, in addition to a few sequences in Russia. The film was in the news due to the persuasion of fans to launch an update regarding the project, as a result, being listed one of the most-anticipated Tamil films according to trade circuits. The film, which was originally intended for a theatrical release during 2020, has since been delayed multiple times due to the pandemic.
