Today, the Malayalam superstar took to Facebook to officially release the trailer of Villain. Within just an hour of this, the trailer has crossed over 2 lakh views. Looks like the trailer (before the release of the film) is all set to set a new record altogether. If this is the kind of response Mohanlal’s upcoming film’s trailer is receiving, the movie is, of course, going to break the box office record when it hits the big screens.

The 1-minute 42-second long trailer looks promising. In the trailer and first look poster, we could see that Mohanlal is sporting a salt-and-pepper look with a white beard. Looks like, his new look is inspired by Rajinikanth’s look in Kabali. What I love about this actor the most is that he’s been coming with movies after movies and they are not just any movies but amazing ones which are very well received at the box office. Every time he proves us that he has it in him. Also, there few Tamil lines in the film, which will make you fall in love all the more just like Premam did (with Nivin Pauly‘s Malayalam and Malar’s Tamil); it’s magical to hear two beautiful languages in one scene.
