2018 is going to be one of the most important and exciting year for Tamil considering the fantastic line up of movies to be released.Director Ajay Gnanamuthu’s “Imaikka Nodigal” is definitely one of them.After making an impressive and highly successful debut with horror thriller “Demonte Colony” starring Arulnidhi,the director is back with yet another promising venture.Launched in 2016,the movie has created a huge buzz for its unique and unusual casting choice.Popular Hindi director “Anurag Kashyap” will be making his Tamil acting debut with this movie.Another interesting addition is Nayantara,who is enjoying a successful career with smart choices.Actor Atharva who made a long lasting impression with director Bala’s “Paradesi” has been casted to play another important role.Actor Vijay Sethupathi is also signed up for a cameo appearance.To provide some relief for fans who were eagerly waiting to see the movie,makers have come out with a 1 minute teaser.
A 1 minute 9 second long teaser starts with few gory and torturous sequences followed with a seemingly worried TV anchor asking for the identity of the person who called on a live show and threatening CBI officer Anjali Vikramadityan[Player by Nayantara].With the power shutdown in the first shot followed by the haunting music from gramophone,director makes it clear about the genre of film “Imaikka Nodigal”. Several shots of a Hospital,underground metro tunnel,police barricade in front of media people makes it clear that the major portion of the movie is shot in Bengaluru.Anurag Kashyap looks menacing and dark and the interesting usage of black and white with sparing color tone adds intensity to the darkness.Atharva seems to playing the role of a college student who gets involved in this cat and mouse game between police and villain.Rashi Khanna comes in a single shot with Atharva and apart from being the love interest of Atharva,nothing could be said about her role from the teaser.Back ground score is in perfect sync with the crisply edited shots.Apt usage of music adds more raciness to this quick teaser.Now we should wait for the trailer to get a better insight of the film.
Apart from a strong cast,the movie will definitely going to get benefited by its talented crew consisting of editor Bhuvan Srinivasan of Demonte Colony and Arima Nambi fame,veteran cinematographer R D Rajashekhar, hot and happening music director HipHop Tamizha,eminent writer Pattukkottai Prabhakar who has penned screenplay and dialogues for the movie.Produced by Cameo films,”Imaikka Nodigal” is slated for a mid 2018 release.
