The three-minute sneak peek has a few ruffians threatening and beating up the character played by Vijay Antony
A still from the film
Ananda Krishnan's Kodiyil Oruvan was one of the few Tamil projects which welcomed the Tamil Nadu government's recent decision to allow movie halls to resume function, thus hinting at its theatrical release soon. A few days later, its makers announced that the film will hit the screens on September 17.
Its Telugu dubbed version, Vijaya Raghavan, too, is expected to have a simultaneous release. Aathmika plays the female lead in the movie, which has KGF fame Ramachandra Raju essaying the antagonist's role. Nivas K Prasanna composes for the project, which has editing by Vijay himself.
The team of Kodiyil Oruvan had released its teaser and trailer earlier this year. They have now come up with a three-minute sneak peek, featuring Vijay and a few others. It begins with the aerial shot of a locality in North Madras. The composer-turned-actor, who plays a tuition teacher in the film, is seen having a casual conversation with some of his students.
As they greet him and walk away, a bunch of ruffians come near him and start threatening. They ask him not to unnecessarily interfere in their matters and start hitting him. They also intimidate his little students who come running to his rescue. Later, Vijay's character is seen asking his students to focus only on their goals and not to get distracted by anything, when they asked him why he didn't retaliate.
Releasing a sneak peek is nothing new for Vijay Antony's films. His earlier movies like Yaman (Zee5), Saithan (MX Player), Kaali (Disney+ Hotstar) and Thimiru Pidichavan (MX Player) among others, had intriguing sneak peeks released a few days before their theatrical releases. The movie has dance choreography by Hari Kiran, while Mahesh Mathew has helmed its action choreography. Kodiyil Oruvan will take on Harbhajan Singh-starrer Friendship at the box office.
