Vetri Maaran is known for its raw and rustic style of filmmaking and Viduthalai is no exception. The film, which is an adaptation of B Jeyamohan's Thunaivan, revolves around the emotions of an honest and earnest cop. Soori, who plays a police constable in the film, is roped in for an operation to catch Vaathiyar, a leader of a 'separatist' group.

Viduthalai marks Soori's debut as an actor
Ace comedian Soori turns a new leaf as he makes his debut as a lead actor in the film. Soori has earlier revealed that Vetri Maaran had narrated two scripts to him before Viduthalai, but both didn't materialise due to various reasons. He also added that it was quite challenging playing the lead character. He has also performed some heavy-duty stunts in the film.

This is the first time that Vijay Sethupathi is teaming up with Vetri Maaran for a film. The actor plays the fugitive leader Vaathiyar, and it looks like majority of the portions will revolve around the chase to get hold of him. It would be interesting to see the Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi joining hands with one of the most loved directors of Tamil cinema.

Music by Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja
For the first time in his career, Vetri Maaran's film will have music by Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja. It is said that Ilaiyaraaja was quite impressed by the film's story and hence, agreed to get on board. He had also revealed that Vetri Maaran was an important director in the annals of Tamil cinema. The song Kaatu Malli has already gone on to become a chartbuster.
