The makers of Caarthick Raju's Soorpanagai had announced that its trailer will be released on Tuesday evening. Director Lingusamy and actors Vijay Sethupathi and Raiza Wilson unveiled the trailer through their social media handles. The two-minute trailer gives a sneak peek into the film's story and genre.
Billed as a mystery thriller, the trailer opens with a voiceover which narrates the horrifying tale about a foreigner who went trekking in a forest and gets attacked by an unknown person. What's intriguing is, only the footprints of the foreigner were found in the forest.
Set in two different time periods, Regina Cassandra, who plays the lead in the movie, is seen sporting two looks in the trailer. She will be seen in the role of an archaeologist in the present, and another mysterious, suspense-filled character in the past. The plot of the film revolves around a series of strange murders. Those who investigate the assassinations, too, get murdered, making the plot further interesting. The shooting of the project, which will release in Telugu as Nene Naa, was wrapped up last month, and the makers had released a new poster then. Caarthick had earlier revealed that the film, which has ample spooky elements, will have humour as well.
Akshara Gowda, Jayaprakash, Jeeva Ravi and Jayaprakash will play important roles in the movie, which has action choreography by Super Subbarayan. Sam CS's music stands out in the trailer of Soorpanagai, which has cinematography by Gokul Benoy and editing by Sabu Joseph. The movie went on floors earlier this year; a lion's share of its shooting happened in and around Courtallam. Director Caarthick has Raiza Wilson-starrer The Chase and Sundeep Kishan's Kannadi awaiting release. The former was shot last year after restrictions were eased by the government post the first lockdown, while the latter's Telugu version had hit the screens.
