The teaser of Udhayanidhi Stalin and Nithya Menen starrer Psycho is out now and has garnered over a million views. The Mysskin directorial is bankrolled by Arun Mozhi Manickam under his Double Meaning Productions banner.
The teaser features Udhayanidhi (who has a visual impairment), an anxious Nithya Menen and a watchful Aditi Rao Hydari. Quick intriguing shots of a naked man, some blood, butcher knives, slaughtered humans and a strange man running, make up the teaser. The trademark Mysskin cut manages to pique one’s interest with the background music (especially done by Mysskin) adding value to the thrills and spills.
Director Mani Ratnam launched the teaser, which later dropped on Youtube.

“All credit goes to director Mysskin sir, who was very confident with what was presented as a teaser. We are really happy with the way people have responded. Audiences are always ready to accept films with unique and exceptional content at all times and the overnight success of Psycho teaser stands out to be evidence for this,” said producer Arun Mozhi Manickam.
The audio rights of the movie were bagged recently by Sony Music South.
“I firmly believe that the brilliant music of Ilayaraja sir will create extraordinary milestones,” said Arun Mozhi.
Psycho is touted to be a psychological thriller. The film is reportedly based on the tale of Angulimala (finger necklace) which is a central story in Buddhism. According to Buddhist literature, Angulimala was a coldblooded bandit who murdered people and made a necklace of their fingers until his meeting with the Buddha, at which point he followed the Buddha to a monastery and embraced monkhood. Udhayanidhi Stalin plays Gautham (which is Buddha’s name) who reportedly imparts knowledge to the serial killer. PC Sreeram has handled camera Isaignani Ilayaraja has composed music and Anthony has taken up editing responsibilities.
