Never mind that Tamil actor Vikram’s last outing at the box office, the much-hyped 10 Endrathukkula, disappeared from the ticket windows without a whimper when it released in October 21. He is back now with what promises to be a winner all the way: Iru Murugan, an action thriller with a sci-fi angle to it. The first look of the I actor’s forthcoming film was released on Monday.
The morphed poster shows a tight, bust-sized shot of Vikram, with half of his face shielded behind a gas mask. Helmet, gas pipe and a breathing device give it an other-worldly feel. Vikram sports a beard with a new hair-do. There’s something ‘demonic’ about the look though... as if he’s nursing a grudge.
Iru Mugan is being directed by Anand Shankar and stars Nayanthara and Nithya Menen. The film’s music is by Harris Jayraj.
