Vijay Sethupathi plays a transwoman in

Ever since Aaranya Kaandam (2010) achieved cult status, the Tamil audience and film-buffs have been impatiently waiting for Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s next. The trailer of his new movie, Super Deluxe.

Vijay Sethupathi plays the character of a transwoman in the movie. While his make-up and look have already been appreciated in social media, one still has to see how the character is played out in the movie. Tamil cinema has a terrible record of caricaturing, criminalising and hyper-sexualising transwomen characters. Apart from Vijay Sethupathi, the trailer introduces actors Fahadh Faasil, Samantha Akkineni, Mysskin, Ramya Krishnan and Gayathrie among others.

Yuvan’s grand music at the end of the trailer and the red tint in the colour grading add to the overall irresistibility of the trailer. The movie is scheduled to release on 29 March and all that we can say is – Bring it on Thiagarajan Kumararaja.
