The director has kindled the curiosity of the viewers using two subtle references. First is the release date -- Friday the 13th, a day which is considered highly unlucky in the western world. And the second is the Mercury gender symbol featured in the poster, which is used to denote a virgin female or an intersex person.
The no language silent film stars Prabhudheva, Sanath Reddy, Deepak Paramesh, Indhuja, and Remya Nambeesan in the lead roles. It will face off against Sriya Reddy's Andava Kaanom at the box office.
