Actor Santhanam is experimenting quite a bit to get his name once again on the blockbuster’s list. The Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham actor was last seen on screens in Gulu Gulu which hit the theaters under the direction of director Rathna Kumar with actress Athulya Chandra as the female lead. The drama did not live up to the expectations of the audience, and fell flat in the box office. But the actor has moved on to his next movie, and is currently gearing up for the release of his next drama titled Agent Kannayiram. The movie is the official remake of hit Telugu film Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya which hit the screens under the direction of story teller Swaroop R. S. J with actor Naveen Polishetty in the lead. Director Manoj Beedha of Vanjagar Ulagam fame has helmed the Tamil version.
Now, the production house has dropped the trailer of the flick on social media along with the release date. Agent Kannayiram is slated to hit the screens on 25th of this month. Actor Santhanam himself has shared the trailer. Taking to his official twitter account, the actor shared the trailer of the entertainer and wrote, “Presenting you all the trailer of my next Agent Kannayiram. A movie in which I have worked beyond my boundaries! Hope u all like it… A Yuvan Shankar Raja musical. Agent Kannayiram from Nov 25.” Here is the tweet made by the actor.

The two-minute odd trailer opens with a flickering fluorescent tube light, then goes the voiceover of actor Santhanam saying, “Received no complaints about dead-bodies found near the railway tracks.” Following which we see a cop in a police station uttering, “A suspicious item found in a crime scene becomes evidence! However, if it is a joker like him, he becomes a suspect.” In the next scene we get the gist about the case where the father of the victim played by actor Munishkanth says, “My daughter was raped and murdered.” We have a chic introduction of Santhanam donning the stylish detective suit.
Earlier speaking about actor Santhanam’s character in the movie, director Manoj Beedha said, “The moment the audience hears Santhanam’s name, comedy is all they expect. Santhanam is working to break that image. This flick will help him do that. So, his fans can expect to see him in a different shade in Agent Kannayiram.” Apart from actor Santhanam, Agent Kannayiram has actress Riya Suman of Seeru fame playing the female lead role.
