The crime drama, which is riding on good expectations, will hit the screens on December 23
Manoj, Anil and Satish
Director Arun Matheswaran has two films, Rocky and Saani Kaayidham, in his kitty. The former is finally ready for a theatrical release tomorrow while the shooting of the latter has been completed a while ago. It is also heard that the movie is likely to have a direct release on Amazon Prime Video.
The makers of Rocky which has been produced by Vignesh Shivan-Nayanthara's Rowdy Pictures have been coming up with various promotional tactics. They had released a promo video recently which featured Nayanthara herself in it, though she isn't playing any character in the project.
Now, the team has managed to rope in Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor for an unexpected promotion of the film. Apparently, the senior actor is said to have watched Rocky and liked it. A picture of Manoj Kumar, one of the producers of the movie, along with Anil and actor-director Satish Kaushik has been doing the rounds on social media.
Later, the team released a video in which Anil went gaga over the movie and asked movie lovers not to give it a miss. The video has him saying, "Mr Manoj Kumar's first film is an excellent film. The director's job is fantastic. The leading man is fantastic. The photography, the scale...it's a film to watch out for. Please go and watch this film. Rocky...is a terrific film."
The film, starring Vasanth Ravi in the lead, has Bharathiraja, Raveena Ravi and Rohini playing pivotal roles in it. The project marks Vasanth's second outing after Ram's Taramani (streaming on Netflix).
Darbuka Siva has composed music for the movie which has cinematography by Shreeyas Krishna and editing by Nagooran. Dinesh Subbarayan and Ramu Thangaraj have handled Rocky's action sequences and art direction respectively.
