The Tamil trailer is different from the one that was released for the Malayalam version. In a bid to attract the Tamil audience, the trailer shows glimpses of the terrific action sequences in the movie.
RP Bala has written the Tamil dialogues and interestingly, Mohanlal himself has dubbed in Tamil for the movie. The theatrical rights for Pulimurugan’s Tamil version was acquired by PK Narayanaswamy who has earlier distributed movies like Theri and Bairavaa in the regional areas.
It is said that Pulimurugan’s theatrical rights was brought for a record price for a dubbed movie. The Telugu version of Pulimurugan- Manyam Puli did an overall business of over 15 crores. So, the makers naturally have pinned high expectations on the Tamil version.
Pulimurugan has an universally appealing story about man vs wild. The lead character Murugan is a wild hunter who hunts down man eating tigers in the locality. Mohanlal played the titular role in the film. Since the plot is an universal one, it will be easy for audience irrespective of any language to connect with the movie. Mohanlal’s amazing performance in the fight scenes and the terrifically shot sequences involving the tigers are the USP the movie.
Pulimurugan, written by Udhayakrishna was directed by Vysakh. Tomichan Mulakupadam produced this big budget movie under the banner Mulakupadam Films.
