The long-delayed project of director Seenu Ramasamy, Maamanithan, is finally hitting the screens on June 24. The film marks his fourth collaboration with Vijay Sethupathi after Thenmerku Paruvakaatru, Idam Porul Yaeval and Dharmadurai. The family drama stars Gayathrie, Guru Somasundaram and KPAC Lalitha, Shaji Chen and Jewel Mary in pivotal roles.
The makers have now come up with a sneak peek video of the project. It begins with Gayathrie's character sending her two children with her husband played by Vijay Sethupathi to school. The latter, who plays an autorickshaw driver, then indulges in a conversation with one of his friends who suggests him to play a mediator's role in a land deal.
The movie, produced by Yuvan Shankar Raja, brings together the musician and his father, the legendary Ilaiyaraaja for the first time. M Sukumar has cranked the camera for the film which has editing handled by Sreekar Prasad. Pa Vijay and Karunakaran have penned lyrics for songs while Vijay Thennarasu have helmed art direction.
Maamanithan revolves around the struggles of a family man after he faces several unexpected incidents in his life. The movie is Vijay Sethupathi's third release this year after Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal and Vikram. He has a few more projects lined up in his kitty.
Seenu Ramasamy, on the other hand, has completed shooting of his action drama Idimuzhakkam starring GV Prakash in the lead. The movie which is based on a few real incidents which happened in Madurai is expected to release later this year.
Idam Porul Yaeval, the second collaboration of Sethupathi and Seenu, which was wrapped up several years ago, is yet to see the light of the day. Though there was news of the movie releasing on an OTT platform during the first lockdown, there is no update yet from the makers.
