Jayam Ravi-starrer Vanamagan is releasing tomorrow, and the trailer has made it apparent that the actor is playing the role of a tribal man who finds himself trying to come to grips with life in a city.

Dance in Tamil cinema goes through drastic changes with every passing year. But every era churned out some icons with incredible moves.
