Maanaadu trailer out: Silambarasan, SJ Suryah are stuck in a dreadful, helpless time loop
Maanaadu will hit screens in November during Deepavali
The trailer of Silambarasan TR's upcoming Deepavali release Maanaadu was released earlier today.
As we already know, Venkat Prabhu's political sci-fi thriller deals with the concept of time loop, and the two-minute trailer gives more details about the same. Simbu's character, Abdul Khaaliq, seems to be stuck in a time loop, in which he unwittingly assassinates the Chief Minister (played by SA Chandrashekhar) during a political rally. Only Simbu and a cop (played by SJ Suryah) seem to realise that they are in a time loop. Is Abdul being framed for the assassination? Will they escape the time loop? The audience will have to wait till Diwali to get those answers.
The film also seems to have a reference to Christopher Nolan's Tenet - a film that dealt with the idea of time manipulation. Interestingly, Tenet was released while Maanaadu was still in production.
Maanaadu has Kalyani Priyadarshan playing the female lead, also stars Premgi Amaren, Bharathiraja and SA Chandrasekaran.
The film, produced by Suresh Kamatchi, has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, editing by Praveen KL, and cinematography by Richard M Nathan. The film is also dubbed in Hindi, Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada, and will be released under the title Rewind.
Maanaadu will hit screens in November during Deepavali.
