Mariyaan teasers: Dhanush in top form in this action drama

A set of short 3o-second promos have created the first buzz around Dhanush’s next, Mariyaan

The National Award-winning actor is, again, in a rustic avatar, a domain he has made his own, especially in films such as Aadukalam. In one of the trailers of Bharat Bala’s next, titled Mariyaan, Dhanush is seen in his trademark lungi, smoking a beedi in arrogant style. Shades of Rajinikanth, maybe?

Another teaser is gripping for its unusual setting, as Dhanush weaves about underwater, spear in hand and then rests on a bed of coral. The actor had even tweeted that it was indeed shot under the ocean and wasn’t swimming pools shots. “Guys it was shot in the ocean. No swimming pool tricks.. again .. watch the teaser.. don’t ask questions … just enjoy,” he wrote on his microblogging page. The star further stated, “Tsunamila swumminga pottamaa ??? ahahhah !!! Hope u guys liked it.”

A third promo shows Dhanush with injuries, hinting that we can expect more than a little violence in this film.

Mariyaan is directed by Bharat Bala and AR Rahman has scored its music, and even in the brief hearing of it, it promises much.
