The teaser of one of the anticipated films of the year, Mersal featuring actor Ilayathalapathy Vijay is here and needless to say, it will leave you wanting for more. Ilayathalapathy is believed to be playing triple roles - a magician, a village headman and a doctor - in Mersal. The director Atlee has kept the premise very colourful as we see Vijay dancing and fighting his way through the video. The 1-minute 15-second long teaser starts with an intriguing narration and introduces us to Vijay's triple roles, and a glimpse of the film.
The Mersal audio, which released last month, has been topping the charts, with most fans humming 'Azhapooran Tamizhan' and making it the new trademark Vijay song.
The first look of Mersal released in June and like the teaser today, it went insane viral too. S. J. Suryah is playing villainous role in the movie. This is also the second time AR Rahman and Vijay come together after a gap of 10 years and incidentally the two complete 25 years in cinema as well.
While Nithya Menen will be pairing up with the father's character, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha will be romancing the sons in Mersal.
Going by Mersal teaser, it looks Atlee has packaged all the necessary elements to make the Vijay-starrer the biggest Tamil blockbuster this year.
The project is produced by Thenandal Films.
The teaser release is coinciding with the birthday celebrations of Atlee Kumar, who turns 30 on Thursday.
