The long-awaited Indian 2 trailer has been released on social media. The highly anticipated trailer gives glimpses of the second installment in Kamal Haasan and director S Shankar’s celebrated franchise. As expected, the legendary actor has stunned in the multiple avatars of his character Veerasekhara Senapathy aka Indian. While Siddharth impresses as a determined youngster, the presence of late actors Vivek, Nedumudi Venu, and Manobala, have left the cine-goers emotional.

The Indian 2 trailer which is not going viral on social media promises a power-packed social thriller. However, the over-stuffed trailer of Shankar’s ambitious project fails to create the expected impact. Kamal Haasan, the leading man is introduced in a larger-than-life style, just like all previous Shankar movie heroes. The Ulaganayagan stuns in the multiple avatars of Indian Thatha and reminds us why he is considered one of the finest actors Indian cinema has ever produced, with his impeccable screen presence and voice modulation.

The Indian 2 trailer also suggests that the movie is going to be a visual treat for Tamil cinema audiences. The intro sequences of the leading man and his massive fight sequence with the bodybuilders are the best parts of the trailer. Unlike the highly criticized Indian 2 intro video, music composer Anirudh Ravichander has done a good job with an effective background score for the 2.37-minute-long trailer. However, the trailer turns messy and over-stuffed when it focuses on the rest of the characters including the second protagonist, played by Siddharth.

Along with Siddharth, the Indian 2 trailer introduces the film's long list of supporting characters who make blink-and-miss appearances. Even though the trailer tries to be sleek and stylish for most of its part, the underwhelming, borderline preachy dialogues, silliness in the staging, and melodrama play big spoilsport. The character played by SJ Suryah, who is introduced much later in the trailer, poses as the perfect larger-than-life villain. However, the presence of Kamal Haasan, stunning visuals, and production design suggest that the Tamil cinema audience is in for a visual treat.
