The teaser of Susienthiran's Shiva Shivaa, which has Jai playing the lead, was unveiled by Arya. It was initially speculated that Silambarasan will release the teaser of the film which also marks Jai's debut as a composer. After the filmmaker's Eeswaran which released earlier this year opening to lukewarm response, looks like he is back to his forte.
The one-minute teaser of the movie reminds film lovers of Susienthiran's Karthi-starrer Naan Mahaan Alla and Vishal-starrer Pandiya Naadu, thanks to the intense emotions and raw violent scenes in it. Sharath Lohitashwa, Jayaprakash, Kaali Venkat, Meenakshi Govindarajan and Balasaravanan are seen in the teaser which offers a glimpse into the revenge tale.
Though Susienthiran has attempted different genres in his career, it's been a while since his film has garnered positive response from both audience and critics alike. Among his movies, it was Pandiya Naadu, released in 2013, which had appealed to both moviegoers and critics. The movie's story revolved around a common man who sets out to avenge his father's death. Vishal and Sharath Lohitashwa played the protagonist and antagonist respectively in the film which was praised for its portrayal of unadulterated violence and effective emotions.
The director's Naan Mahaan Alla, which started as a breezy romance, too, had nail-biting, gory action scenes in its climax. The filmmaker seems to have realized that audience are expecting gripping action films from him which are set against rural backdrop, something which he is known for.
Produced by S Aishwarya under Lendi Studio, Shiva Shivaa has cinematography by R Velraj and editing by Mu Kasi Vishwanathan. Bhaskar Sakthi has written dialogues for the movie which has stunt choreography by Dinesh Kasi. Susie, who has committed a film with actor-politician Udhayanidhi, has Angelina, too, in his kitty, which has Krisha Kurup, Monica Chinnakotla and Bose Venkat essaying prominent roles in it.
Meanwhile, the director's Kuttram Kuttrame, which also stars Jai, along with Bharathiraja, Harish Uthaman, Smruthi Venkat and Kaali Venkat, is said to be premiering on Zee5 soon.
