The most awaited Tamil film Peranbu, directed by Ram has finally released the official teaser during the audio launch of the film in Chennai on Sunday. The film stars veteran Malayalam actor Mammootty who is making his comeback in Tamil with the upcoming drama. The teaser goes on for two minutes and is titled ‘Chapter One – Nature is ruthless’. The scene is set in a wooden cabin amidst a scenic backdrop. In this teaser we see Mammootty playing the role of a father, Amudhavan and tries to mimic his daughter, Paapa’s, physical condition. This two-minute teaser was enough to leave the audience dumbfounded. Amudhavan narrates his own story and says, “All these years I was worried why Paapa is not like other children. But when I tried walking like her I realised comparing one person with another is brutal.”
Though not much was shown in the teaser, Mammooty’s monologue was powerful enough to give us a gist of the story that will unfold. The film will release both in Malayalam and Tamil. Produced by PL Thenappan under his banner Sri Rajalakshmi Films, the film stars Anjali, Thanga Meengal Sadhana, Sarath Kumar, Anjali Ameer, Samuthirakani, Vadivukkarasi, Livingston, Suraj Venjaramood, Siddique and Aruldoss. Peranbu was officially selected at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and Shanghai International Film Festival. This was the only Indian film to feature in the top 20 in the Audience Award category at Rotterdam. It was even nominated for NETPAC award, an award given to best Asian films.
