One-minute teaser cut opens to a bird’s eye view shot of a flyover with the voiceover, “To catch a rat, you must set up a rat trap. To catch a tiger, only a tiger should come. Where is our Prabhakaran.” With that we have the introduction of Vikram Prabhu, who breaks bones, smashes bottles on henchmen, and does gravity defying stunts. He then mouths a punch dialogue, “If Brama wrote your fate in pen, I will write it in gun.” When he is threatened, “We also know to shoot. We are also men.” He retorts by saying, “Mustache and beard alone do not qualify you to be a man. If you are a man, you should have blood, and it should be pure.” The teaser is in line with the commercial mass action genre. There is news that the production unit is in plans to bring the project to theaters in the month of May.
