Viruman is the next film directed by Muthiah, who is one of the directors in Tamil cinema who takes the village story in hand. The film stars actor Karthi as the hero and director Shankar’s daughter Aditi as the heroine. Prakashraj, Rajkiran, Saranya Ponvannan, Actor Suri, RK Suresh, Manoj Bharathiraja also acted.
Composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, the film will release in theaters tomorrow. Earlier, the film team had held the music launch party of the film in a grand manner in Madurai and released the trailer on the same day. All the songs of Viruman have been well received and now the sneak peek video from the film has been released.
Director Muthiah is the one who takes the village plot in Tamil cinema. He directed many films including Kuttipuli, Komban, Marudu, Kodi Veeran. The films were well received by the rural audience. All the films he directed were criticized for casteist overtones. Especially Gautham Karthik starrer Devarattam was severely criticized.
The film also flopped. After that he directed the film Pulikutty Pandi starring Vikram Prabhu. It also did not meet with the expected success. In this case, Muthiah’s take on a village story is ‘Viruman’. The film is produced by ‘2D Entertainment’ owned by Surya and Jyotika, and Yuvan Shankar Raja has stepped in as the music director.
Earlier, the film team had announced that the film ‘Viruman’ would be released on August 31, which is Vinayagar Chaturthi, but now it has been announced that it will be released on August 12. It is worth noting that the film was shot and completed quickly in Theni and its surrounding areas.
