A still from the film
The most-expected teaser of Rajinikanth's Annaatthe, directed by Siva, is finally out. Sun Pictures, which is bankrolling the project, unveiled the teaser on social media. The power-packed teaser which has a duration of 1 minute and 45 seconds, is nothing short of a treat for the fans of Superstar.
From oozing swag with his trademark walking style and smile, to bashing up the baddies left, right and centre, the star is playing someone who hails from a village after a long time. Looks like his character sets out to take revenge against a few people in another state, where a slew of unexpected incidents occur.
The much-awaited #AnnaattheTeaser is here:— Sun Pictures (@sunpictures) October 14, 2021

The teaser, which is high on action, however, offered no glimpse of other actors in the movie, which is billed as a family drama. Fans who expected to see the likes of Nayanthara, Khushbu, Meena, Keerthy Suresh, Soori and Abhimanyu Singh are slightly disappointed, though Thalaivar has single-handedly entertained the movie buffs with his energetic screen presence. Imman's pulsating music and Vetri Palanisamy's effective visuals elevate some of the shots which feature Rajinikanth in mass avatar. The last shot of the teaser which has the star sitting on a swing reminds his fans of the iconic scene from KS Ravikumar's Padayappa.
All set to hit the screens on November 4, on the occasion of Deepavali, Annaatthe is Rajinikanth's first film in this century to have a release on the festival. His last Deepavali release was Ravikumar's Muthu which released in 1995. Annaatthe will take on Silambarasan's Maanaadu and Vishal-Arya's Enemy at the box office. It is also heard that Tamil Nadu government is likely to grant 100 per cent occupancy in theatres from Deepavali though an official announcement is awaited.
