The theatrical release date for composer-turned-actor GV Prakash Kumar’s socio-political thriller Rebel has been fixed. The makers of the film took to their social media handles to announce that the film will be released on the big screens on March 22. They captioned the post, “The Rebel is all set to evoke the revolution.” 

GV Prakash's role in Rebel

GV Prakash shared a promo video for Rebel. In it, he is seen as a feisty college student. The actor plays a left-wing student leader in the film who supports Tamil students in Kerala who are forced to do manual labour during what appears to be the early 1970s or 1960s. GV Prakash's character fights for the rights of the Tamil students who are discriminated against and ill-treated on the college premises.

The film has been largely shot in Kerala, so a lot of Malayalam will be spoken in the political drama. Rebel is inspired by a real-life incident and promises to be an action-packed film.

Rebel is a film for Tamilians, says director Nikesh RS

Directed by Nikesh RS, Rebel is based on the Tamil people’s battle against slavery. The director recently said that the film is made for Tamilians and will narrate an important story from history. “I was brought up in Munnar, Kerala; Rebel is a period film that will showcase the lives of the people in that town. The film is centred around students who studied there and how they were affected by the politics unfolding at the institution,” Nikesh revealed in an earlier interview. He added that the story of Rebel is important and one that needs to be told, as it will be relevant for years to come.
