Vikram in Thangalaan tribute video

The makers of Thangalaan released a tribute video on Wednesday, 17 April, marking Chiyaan Vikram’s birthday.

Vikram turned 58 on Wednesday.

The tribute video showcases the behind-the-scenes (BTS) footage from Thangalaan, a period drama directed by PA Ranjith.

It also shows the actor doing some high-octane action scenes and getting makeup done for his character.

In all, the tribute video gives the impression that the movie would be a gritty tale.

Thangalaan revolves around the Kolar Gold Fields and will deal with the origins of the place.

Vikram and PA Ranjith are teaming up for the first time in their career.

Studio Green and Neelam Productions are producing the Tamil flick. Tamil Praba has co-written it.

Thangalaan casts Parvathy Thiruvothu as the female lead. The other cast includes Malavika Mohanan and Pasupathy and British actor Daniel Caltagirone.

The OTT giant Netflix has bagged the digital rights for the movie.

It will be released in Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi. It has music by GV Prakash and cinematography by Kishore Kumar.

During the teaser launch, PA Ranjith said he would usually give suggestions to actors on the characters they play. But for the first time, in Thangalaan, Vikram came up with different options for his character.

The movie was scheduled to be released in January but was postponed for some reason. The new release date of Thangalaan is yet to be confirmed by the makers.

However, it is expected to hit the screens after the Lok Sabha elections in Tamil Nadu.
