Posters of Kamal Haasan's next film,


(a place that never sleeps) are out. After playing an eighth century artiste and a contemporary superstar in Uttama Villain, Kamal Haasan is now all set to go the thriller way and play a cop in



One of the posters shows Kamal as a plain-clothed cop, with a gun conspicuously tucked in his belt. Another poster has the star in a pub, kissing a woman while keeping an eye on someone. We don't get to see the lady though. The last of the posters shows the actor in an action mode, smashing a car screen, in a picture that has been shot from inside the car.

Thoongaavanam is said to be a fast-paced thriller where the entire story unfolds during the course of a single night. The film will be directed by Kamal's long-time associate Rajesh M Selva and features Trisha Krishnan and Prakash Raj in important roles.
