The teaser of Aha's upcoming original film Rathasaatchi was released today by none other than the Vendhu Thanindhathu star Silambarasan TR. Taking to his social media handle, Silambarasan shared the teaser and wrote, "Love is my Weapon! #RathasaatchiTeaser https://youtu.be/RHsZnWzvG6o Watch out for this Revolutionary film #RathasaatchionAha. Best Wishes to #Rathasaatchi team (sic)." The film is directed by Rafiq Ismail, who has also penned the screenplay. The star cast includes Kanna Ravi, Elango Kumaravel, Harish Kumar, Kalyan Master, Madras Vinoth and Aaru Bala.
The teaser gives a sneak peek of the exploitation of bonded labourers by a zamindar, who owned a 700 acre farm and had 300 people working for him. The plot is set in the 1980 and we also see labourers chained to a stone and complaining that they have never got their wages on time. Kanna Ravi, who plays the lead, arrives as a messiah for the poor and says that one needs to get hold of their rights and if they are not granted to them, they need to be snatched. We later see tussle between the policemen, communist party members, labourers and the landlord's people.Towards the end we hear the line, "If the haves snatches the rights of have-nots, even if they are god, they need to be hit back. That's the communism I know."
It looks like the film is going to be an action-packed entertainer and depiction of the fight for the rights of the marginalized. The makers had recently dropped a new poster where a group of people are walking around in a burning forest carrying weapons. Rathasaatchi is an adaptation of a short story Kathaigal from the novel Venkadal, penned by B Jeyamohan, who is known for his work in Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan and Gautham Vasudev Menon's Vendhu Thandindhathu Kaadu. The title Rathasaatchi roughly translates to Blood Witness.
