The official teaser of Dhanush’s Vada Chennai was released on his birthday, July 28. Directed by Vetri Maaran.
The one-minute trailer Dhanush is seen as a youngster with a funky hairstyle wearing prints from perhaps the seventies or eighties. Samuthiraakani, too, is seen sporting a hairstyle that was probably the fad a few decades ago. It was announced earlier that Dhanush plays a carom champion in the film.
The trailer hints at a longer storyline that involves gang wars, drugs and fight for power. There are strong resemblances to Dhanush’s older films like Aadukalam, Pudupettai and Anurag Kashyap’s masterpiece Gangs of Wasseypur.
The film also stars Daniel Balaji, Kishore and filmmaker Ameer in important roles. Produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films, Vada Chennai has music by Santosh Narayanan.
