The film, helmed by Siva is one of the most-hyped projects of Suriya and the glimpse sure lives up to the same
The much-awaited first-look of Suriya's Kanguva is finally here! The actor as Kanguva is in a never-before-seen-avatar in this period saga and he pulls it off with elan. The video introduces us to a battlefield where people are seen lying dead. Kanguva, their saviour and king, arrives from the flames to save his people from further destruction. The way Suriya unveils his mask and gradually reveals his look is sure to set the internet on fire. Towards the end of the glimpse, the way Suriya asks 'Nalama' will have the audience eating out of their hands.

The two minute 10 seconds video has made everyone sit up and take notice. The film's composer Devi Sri Prasad is out all guns blazing with his thumping background score, is a treat to the ears. The voiceover for the Tamil version has been provided by Arunraja Kamaraj.
The video has been released on the occasion of Suriya's birthday today. What's interesting is that the glimpse video has been released on a YouTube channel and cinephiles have the option to choose the language they prefer to watch it in, be it Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, English or Hindi.
During a special screening held yesterday, the film's director Siva had stated that the title Kanguva meant 'Son of fire' and that the term refers to the Tamil word 'Kangu' which means coal. "The script was ready four years ago and it has finally materialised. Kanguva is a blend of war, action and emotion. The period portions are set 1, 500 years back and the film is packed with many war sequences."
The film marks the maiden collaboration between Suriya and Siruthai Siva. Suriya has put in some extraordinary hard work on the project and the team is working hard to bring a quality product. The shoot for the film is happening at a brisk pace, which involves an elaborate period portion.
Kanguva's producer KE Gnanavel Raja had stated at a meet earlier that when the project was narrated to him, the scale was so big that he didn't want to restrict to a single language and hence, decided to opt for a pan-Indian project releasing in multiple languages and to made in 3D.
The film marks the debut of Bollywood Disha Patani in Tamil and DSP's return to Kollywood after a short hiatus. Kanguva is bankrolled by Studio Green.
