The much talked about movie Asuran starring Dhanush has just come out with its trailer on Sunday,8th September.
This is Dhanush’s fourth movie with Vetrimaaran and his next outing after the hit Vada Chennai.
G V Prakash Kumar will be composing the music and Velraj the cinematography. The movie is loosely based on the Tamil novel Vekkai by Poomani which is a story of revenge and describes a father – son duo on the run. The novel has one day described in one chapter. Thus in the 8 chapters, the young boy’s escapades in 8 days are brought out.
While the novel narrates the revenge by the young boy, the trailer seems to suggest that the movie is about the revenge of the father. Dhanush is seen as an elderly man with a green turban in the trailer. Later in a flashback he is his usual young self. Also to be seen is Manju Warrier in a rustic role reminiscent of her hit Malayalam movie, Kanmadam. She is debuting in Tamil movies. Pasupathy and Prakash Raj are also in the cast.
With this high powered star cast and Manju Warrier’s maiden appearance in Tamil, the expectation of the audience is high.
