The video offers a glimpse into the world of Thangalaan. More importantly, it focuses on the lead actor’s character after the initial few scenes. The camera follows Vikram as he gets into character. Vikram had to undergo a massive physical transformation for this role in Thangalaan. Not only did he lose weight, but he also toned down his muscles to look the part. He shaved the front of his head to sport a half-shaved look with a man bun.
Several fans reacted to the video. Some said that they can expect an epic in the making. One Twitter user wrote, “What a making video. We can expect an epic of a film.” Another user wrote, “A combo that’s got us rightly excited with this video. Stoked for Thangalaan.”

Starring Parvathy and Malavika Mohanan among others, the film is slated to release later this year.
Meanwhile, Vikram is currently awaiting the release of Mani Ratnam’s upcoming magnum opus, Ponniyin Selvan 2. In the film, seen playing the character of Aditha Karikalan.
