Mercury: Watch the trailer of Prabhu Deva’s silent horror-thriller here!
The extremely talented Karthik Subbaraj is constantly in the process of trying out new things. After making path-breaking movies like Pizza, Jigarthanda and Iraivi, the young filmmaker is back with yet another unique attempt. His next titled ‘Mercury’ is a silent film starring Prabhu Deva and a bunch of newcomers in the lead.
The movie’s trailer was released last day in social medias by AR Rahman, Dulquer Salmaan, Rakshit Shetty and Nithiin through their respective social media handles. The trailer was supposed to release last week but had to be pushed due to TFPC’s strike. Earlier, South Indian stars like Rana Daggubati, Nivin Pauly, Dhanush and Rakshit Shetty had come together for the movie’s teaser release.
Mercury is a daring attempt from Karthik Subbaraj as the movie has no dialogues. A silent film is being made in Indian cinema after a gap of three long decades and expectations are on the higher side.
Sharing the trailer on his Facebook page last day, Dulquer wrote,
Wishing Prabhu Deva Sir, Karthik Subbaraj, Editor Vivek Harshan and everyone else involved with “Mercury” the very best for release. Being a silent film it is a no language film and people all over should give it a watch ! I’m a huge fan of Pushpak and this is something that’s being attempted after such a long time. I’m very excited to watch it ! (sic)
Apart from Prabhudeva, the movie also stars Sanath, ‘Meyaadha Maan’ fame Indhuja, Deepak, Paramesh, Shashank Purushotham and Anish Padamanabhan. The technical crew includes acclaimed cinematographer Tirru, composer Santhosh Narayanan and editor Vivek Harshan. The movie is slated for release on April 13, but it is still uncertain if the film would release in Tamil Nadu due to the ongoing strike.
