A tale of rural feuds

The trailer of Ajith’s upcoming film, ‘Viswasam’, was released recently. The film is his fourth collaboration with filmmaker Siva. Starring Ajith and Nayanthara in the lead, the film’s music has been composed by D Imman. The film is set to release for Pongal 2019.

The trailer shows Ajith playing the role of Thookudurai, a local don from Theni. Clad in a white veshti and shirt, he is seen being greeted by the folks in town, suggesting he may also be a respected local leader. With the Madurai-accented Tamil and the moustache twirling, the makers seem to have made it clear that the film is directed towards what the industry calls ‘B and C centres’.

Ajith was last seen playing an Interpol agent in Vivegam, also directed by Siva. He will be seen on screen with Nayanthara after 10 years. They were last seen together in Aegan, which was released in 2008.

Bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi Films, the film also stars Vivek, Robo Shankar, Thambi Ramaiah, Kovai Sarala, Sandhya Janak, Kalairani, Bose Venkat, Sujatha Sivakumar, Ramesh Thilak, Jangiri Madhumitha and Namo Narayana. Rajinikanth’s Petta, that was previously slated to clash with Viswasam at the box office, opted out of the race when the makers announced that the film would be released just ahead of Pongal on January 10.

‘Viswasam’ will be releasing at MC-Jaffna, Colombo, Capitol -Maradana, Cine City, City cinema Mount Lavinia, Concord and other film halls islandwide from January 10. It is a CEL release
