Decoding the Rebel teaser

Going by the teaser, the film is set in the early Communist period in Kerala, where Tamil students are facing injustice and GV Prakash steps forward to protect their rights. The actor plays a left-wing student leader, fighting for the Tamil students in Kerala, who have been forced to do manual labour during what appears to be the early 70s or 60s. The immigrant students are facing discrimination and being ill-treated, and hence, the central character (GV Prakash) fights for their rights in the college premises. The teaser ends with the actor listening to the popular Ilaiyaraaja single, ‘Ilamai Enum Poongatru’ at the college canteen, sitting opposite to a girl (possibly the female lead).  


The teaser showcases scenes taking place in Kerala, hence there are many references of the Malayalam language in the film. Overall, the G V Prakash film promises to be an exciting watch, considering that it is inspired by real-lfe events.  

 Besides GV Prakash Kumar and Mamitha Baiju, Rebel movie’s star cast includes Venkitesh VP, Shalu Rahim, Karunas, Adhithya Baskar, Kalloori Vinoth and Subramaniya Siva.
