Aadai Teaser: Amala Paul looks promising in this shocking one-and-a-half-minute teaser

'Freedom is what you do with what is done to you'. The highly-anticipated teaser of Aadai begins with this quote of philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, hinting at the survival story of a girl, who fights back to reclaim the freedom snatched away from her. 

Though there are hardly any visual cues to explain the storyline, the lyrics of Bharath Shankar gives away the central theme of the film. The song played in the background questions the forced identities that are thrust on women — "Ne vaanavilla?" (Are you a rainbow?), "Vannam thedum vellai poova?"(Are you a white flower seeking colour?) — their objectification in society — "Ne parkum porula?"(Are you a showpiece?) — and the long-prevalent superstitions that women bring good luck — "Ne parpadhellam ponn dhana?" (Do the things you see turn into gold?)

Meanwhile, the camera hovers over an abandoned workspace, as the police procedural for the missing person begins. We get to see a murder and arguably, one of the boldest shots of Tamil cinema arrives, featuring a nude Amala Paul waking up to trauma.

The teaser has certainly leveled up the hype created by the first look, and if the film manages to shock and surprise us the same way, Aadai can very well lay claim to its tag line: 'audacious and artistic'.
