Taanakkaran trailer out; Vikram Prabhu starrer looks highly promising
Vikram Prabhu’s new film ‘Taanakkaran’ is set to have a direct digital release on Disney + Hotstar. The film will be premiering on April 8. Meanwhile, the makers have shared its trailer online. From the trailer, it is learnt that the film is about the struggles faced by trainees in a police training academy. It gives us a glimpse of the kind of hard work and effort that goes into training to become a cop.
The film is written and directed by Tamizh, who has earlier done notable roles in films like ‘Jai Bhim’ and ‘Asuran’. Interestingly, the director himself is a former cop and the film is based on his real-life experiences.
Veteran Malayalam actor Lal, who delivered a powerful performance last year in ‘Karnan’, is playing a prominent role in this film as well. Anjali Nair, Bose Venkat, Madhusudhan Rao, Paval Navageethan and MS Bhaskar will also be seen in major roles. Almost 95% of the artistes in the film are retired army personnel and cops as the makers were keen on showing the training and parade routine with authenticity.
‘Taanakkaran’ is produced jointly by SR Prakash Babu, SR Prabhu, P Gobinath and Thanga Prabaharan R under the banner of Potential Studios LLP. Madhesh Manickam is the cinematographer and music is composed by Ghibran. Philomin Raj is handling the edits.
