The teaser, which was released by the unit a couple of days ago, has caught the attention of not just film buffs but also critics and trade experts.
The film, which features Samuthirakani in the lead, shines a light on the layers of power within the police department.

He says, “In the police force, anyone who is not in power is a thug. I am an old thug. And you are a new thug to them. That is the only difference.”

The film has been jointly produced by Pa Ranjith, Abhayanand Singh, Piiyush Singh and Aditi Anand along with U M Rao.
