The movie Visaranai is a hard hitting take on police brutality and its realistic portrayal is what got it recognition. It based on a novel Lock up written by a writer who was in custody for 13 days where he was tortured for a crime he didn’t commit. It’s about four immigrants who get caught for a crime they have committed and then face torture thereafter.The movie is not clearly for the faint hearted, as the director has gone all out to show violence. Coming back to the Oscars news, Vetrimaaran had confirmed it to a leading daily without elaborating further on it.

The duo – Vetrimaaran-Dhanush are coming together again for a trilogy- Vada chennai. The movie is roughly based on 30 years in the life of gangster. Initially Samantha Ruth Prabhu was to be part of this project, but the Telugu actress has been replaced by Amala Paul. Apart from Thodari, Dhanush has Kodi coming up where he will be playing never done before double role! He will be playing twins, one of which is a teacher and the other is a politician. Interestingly the actor will sport three different looks.
