The trailer of RK Suresh's Visithran was launched by Vijay Sethupathi and Seenu Ramasamy today at 6pm today. Sharing the trailer on his social media page, Vijay Sethupathi wrote, "Happy to share #VisithiranTrailer.

Director Seenu Ramasamy, too, shared the trailer on his social media page and wished the team.

Earlier, RK Suresh had shared the announcement that the trailer will be launched on Ajith’s birthday on May 1. He had written on his social media handle, “#Visithiran trailer launch by makkal Selvan and makkal ikunar #MAY 1 st on #AK birthday 👍👍👍 @VijaySethuOffl @seenuramasamy @STUDIO9_produc @bstudios_offl @onlynikil (sic).” 

Visithran is the remake of the critically-acclaimed Malayalam film Joseph, which had Joju George playing the lead. Joju's performance was so well received in the film that he went on to win the Kerala State Award and received a special mention at the National Awards. The Malayalam version was directed by M Padmakumar, who is also helming the Tamil version.

The star cast for Visithran includes Poorna, Madhu Shalini, Bhagavathi Perumal, Ilavarasu, George Maryan, G Marimuthu and Ani Murali. Music for the film is by GV Prakash, cinematography by Vetrivel Mahendran and editing is by Sathish Surya. 

The film was initially scheduled to release on May 2, but the makers decided to advance the date recently and will now hit screens on May 6. Visithran is a crime thriller that talks about a police investigation and an important issue plaguing the society. The teaser for the film was released by Suriya and the makers have retained the prime plot with subtle changes to suit the Tamil audiences.

Joseph is now being remade in Telugu as Sekhar (starring Rajasekhar), in Kannada as Ravi Bopanna (starring Ravichandran) and in Hindi with Sunny Deol.
