Mersal: The hype and expectations surrounding the first look and title of Vijay’s upcoming film directed by Atlee is something unusual and the Social Medias have never seen such a trend in recent times after the title launch of Ajith’s Vivegam. It’s no doubt that Vijay and Ajith are the two icons of Kollywood, who have a huge following in South India and other Tamil speaking territories.
Finally, Sri Thenandal Films, the makers of the film have unwrapped the first look and title of the film. The film so far called as Vijay 61 / Thalapathy 61 has been titled MERSAL. The first look poster of Mersal was released amidst much fanfare.
Apparently, Mersal is a catchy title that one can easily get adapted as it is a quite poplar slang used in Chennai. Mersal means stunned or astonished in English. It looks like the title goes in line with the storyline of the film. Set in Jallikattu backdrop, the first look poster as well as the font of Mersal has lots of references about Tamil cultural heritage sport Jallikattu.
Directed by Atlee, Mersal has tunes composed by Oscar Award winning music director A R Rahman. The title and first look has undoubtedly elevated the expectation over the film as the story of the film is penned by Baahubali writer K Vijayendra Prasada, who is the most sought after writer in Indian Cinema right now.
Meanwhile, this is Sri Thenandal Films’ 100th film, quite a prestigious film for the production house and hence a huge amount has been tanked in the production. The film has highly glorified cast and technicians, including Vijay, Kajal Aggarwal, S J suryah, Samantha, Nithya Menon, Kovai Sarala, Vaigaipuyal Vaidvelu, Sathyaraj and Sathyan.
As far as crew is concerned, Mersal features Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman, cinematographer GK Vishnu, Editor Ruben, stunt director Anal Arasu, lyricist Vivek and production designer T Muthuraj.
Overall, the film has top of the line actors and technicians, and the buzz created around the film will certainly make it the biggest opener of 2017, which is slated to release for Diwali 2017.
Obliviously, we the team of Press Kollywood MERSALAAYITTOM!!!
