Actor Dhanush unveiled the teaser of the upcoming film Baghera on Friday. The film, starring Prabhu Deva, is written and directed by Adik Ravichandran.
The teaser introduces the titular character played by Prabhu Deva, who is forced into a straitjacket in a mental asylum. Bagheera seems to be giving sleepless nights to doctors and officials of the institution. And when the camera finally reveals his face, he wears a unique type of sunglasses. The round shaped glasses also cover his third eye in the center of the forehead as the director gives the film a mythical spin.
We see Prabhu Deva in two different get-ups, suggesting that the actor may play multiple roles in the film. Or at least that’s what Adikavi Ravichandran wants us to believe.
Prabhu Deva’s look as a bald assassin with spectacles calls for Nurvathu Naal to see Satyaraj’s form. The actor seems to have outdone himself from his comfort zone, which was given to give us a weird genre thriller, loaded with the usual over-the-top dance numbers, glamor and dark humors.
Adik Ravichandran made his debut in the 2015 adult comedy Trisha Ileana Nayanthara. The film starring GV Prakash Kumar was surprisingly received by critics and audiences. Later, he directed Simbu in Ambavan Asradhavan Adangadhavan. The film went into trouble after her marriage with Simbu broke out over the alleged enmity. The film exploded at the box office and was rapped by critics.
Will Bagheera get her career back on track? only time will tell.
Apart from Prabhu Deva, the film also stars Amaira Dastur, Ramya Nambisan, Janani Iyer, Sanchit Shetty, Gayatri Shankar, Sakshi Aggarwal and Sonia Aggarwal.
