The trailer of Vetrimaaran’s Asuran is out now. The visuals span rural TN, feature an extensive cast and promise a dark, gritty tale. Dhanush’s protagonists (he plays father and son) are at the heart of the story. Manju Warrier, director Balaji Sakthivel, Ken Karunas, Subramania Siva, Pasupathi and Aadukalam Naren have important roles too.
Asuran is based on writer Poomani’s Vekkai. Vekkai is the story of a boy who commits a murder. And the events that unfold over the days following this as the boy and his father are on the run in the hinterland. 15-year-old Chidambaram wants to humiliate his brother’s murderer and hack his arm off. He ends up killing him.
GV Prakash has composed Asuran’s music while cinematography is by Velraj, and production by S Thanu under his banner V Creations.
The film will release on October 4, 2019.
