Vaadivaasal: Suriya’s next with Vetrimaaran is a tale of revenge
As reported earlier, Suriya and Vetrimaaran are teaming up for a new film titled ‘Vaadivaasal’. The film is based on CS Chellappa’s popular novel of the same name. Kalaippuli S Thanu of V Creations, who produced the director’s last blockbuster ‘Asuran’, is backing this film as well.
‘Vaadivaasal’, the novel, is actually based on Jallikkattu, a famous bull taming sport practiced from the Tamil classical period. Vaadivasal is the narrow gate through which the Jallikattu bulls are let out for young men to subdue during the Pongal celebrations. The novel has immense potential to be made into a film as it captures the native spirit of the sport that is a very integral part of Tamil culture. We have learnt that it is a tale of revenge about how an youngster defeats a bull that killed his father.
It will be interesting to see how Suriya transforms himself for a Vetrimaaran film. The latter had acquired the rights of Chellappa’s novel 3 years back itself. He has already proven his ability to helm literary adaptations with his acclaimed films like ‘Visaaranai’ and ‘Asuran. So there will be lot of expectations this time around as well. In addition to that, this is also his first film with Suriya.
Shoot is expected to begin by the end of this year. GV Prakash has been signed as the music director.
