Whats it about?

The second trailer digs deep into the conflict shown in the first trailer and brings more complexity and clarity on characters at the same time. Even though it sounds a bit melodramatic when you hear Simbu and others calling their own father Senapathi [played by Prakash Raj] as “Periyavar” [means elder] , it could be forgiven considering the fact that Mani Ratnam makes his character’s speak in a certain way which is different from usual and casual ways of conversation.Anyway second trailer which could be termed as an extension of first one,makes it clear that the movie is about the war for power but doesn’t reveal whether the war is internal or external.
