Chiyaan Vikram’s performance as Aditha Karikalan in Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan: Part 2 won him a lot of praise. Currently, he is working on Thangalaan under the direction of PA Ranjith. There have been rumors about the film’s release date that have come to light recently, and if they are true, Thangalaan’s team is planning to release it on Sankranthi/Pongal 2024.
The film is directed by PA Ranjith as said above. For this film, Vikram went into a complete makeover, and he will be seen in a different avatar. There is a massive buzz about the film. In Tamil already Siva Karthikeyan’s Ayalaan and Rajinikanth’s guest role film Lal Salaam are announced and now Vikram’s Thangalaan film is said to be joining the race.
Thangalaan also stars Malavika Mohanan, Parvathy Thiruvothu and Pasupathy Masilamani in important roles, and the film has music scored by GV Prakash Kumar. Produced by KE Gnanavel’s Studio Green, Thangalaan is being made as a period film that explores the lives of individuals employed in the Kolar goldfields in the eighteenth century.
The film is carrying a massive buzz in Tamil audiences and the trade circles as well because of the director – actor combo and the backdrop. Needless to say, the film will also be released in Telugu. Chiyaan Vikram has gone into a thoroughly different avatar for the film. Let’s hope that his hard work pays off and Thangalaan becomes a super successful venture for all the parties involved.
