The flick opened up to negative reviews and left the theaters unnoticed. The Manmadhan actor is now gearing up for the release of his upcoming action film titled Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu. Director Gautham Vasudev Menon has directed the flick. The shooting for the drama which began a long time ago, after facing many hurdles, has finally come to the pre-release stage.

Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is said to be about the life journey of a youngster hailing from a humble background. Silambarasan plays the character named Muthu. The two minutes odd cut opens with the alluring voiceover of Gautham Vasudev Menon reciting, “Sometimes saying the truth is more difficult than telling a story.
