Billed as a family drama with suspense elements, the film will start streaming on Zee5 from October 13
Samuthirakani with Jayaprakash
Zee5 had announced only a week ago that Vinodhaya Sitham, directed by actor-filmmaker Samuthirakani, will premiere on the streaming platform on October 13. Tipped as a family drama, the movie stars Samuthirakani himself in the lead, while Thambi Ramaiah, Sanchita Shetty, Munishkanth and Jayaprakash will be seen essaying important characters in it.
The project is bankrolled by story writer and veteran exhibitor Abirami Ramanathan. Ramesh and Ekambaram have handled the film's editing and cinematography respectively. In a release issued by the team earlier, Samuthirakani had said that the movie's plot revolves around the complexity of human minds which can't be controlled. The film's first look poster was unveiled by Sasikumar a few days ago.
The makers have released the film's trailer now through the Twitter handle of director Pa Ranjith. The one-and-a-half minute trailer has Sriranjani and Balaji Mohan, too, in it apart from the other lead actors. Samuthirakani is said to be playing Parasuraman, a mysterious and powerful character, who finds joy in controlling the lives of others around him.
However, his life turns topsy-turvy after an unexpected incident. What happens later after he loses control on others' lives forms the crux of the story. Unlike Samuthirakani's previous directorial projects, Vinodhaya Sitham, going by the trailer, appears to have elements required for a thriller.
Samuthirakani, who last helmed Naadodigal 2, was previously seen on big screen in the recently released multilingual project Thalaivii. He currently has half a dozen projects as an actor in his kitty, in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Samuthirakani, who had directed Thambi Ramaiah earlier, said recently in a release that the manner in which a few characters are designed in the film will engage the viewers. The latter, on the other hand, had said that the audience is likely to have a unique sense of satisfaction after watching the movie.
