Filmmaker AR Murugadoss had announced a while ago that he is bankrolling a project titled August 16 1947, starring Gautham Karthik in the lead. He had also unveiled the movie's first look which hinted at its genre. Tipped as a period flick, the film has NS Ponkumar at its helm.

Silambarasan has now unveiled the film's two-minute teaser which offers a glimpse into its plot. The project revolves around a village in Tamil Nadu where people are dreaming about freedom from the British. The inhabitants there who lack education and other exposure are overjoyed with Mahatma Gandhi's determination to fight for an independent India.

August 16 1947 also touches upon various atrocities meted out to Indian people by the British Empire during the 1940s. A romantic track amid the freedom struggle that happens in the village, too, is said to be one of the highlights of the project.

Om Prakash Bhatt and Narsiram Choudhary have also produced the movie along with Murugadoss. This is the second Gautham Karthik-starrer Murugadoss has bankrolled after Rangoon which was released in 2017. Sudharsan R and Selvakumar SK have handled editing and cinematography respectively for the film.

Sean Roldan has composed music for the project which has art direction by T Santhanam. Rajasekhar has choreographed action sequences for the film while Dinesh has composed dance moves. Sivakarthikeyan had unveiled the first look poster of August 16 1947 a couple of months ago.

The film's trailer is expected to be released later this year. Revathi Sharma and Pugazh play important roles in the movie which is likely to hit the screens towards the end of the year.
