The trailer is centered on the search for a serial killer who is preying on young women in Chennai. Nayanthara, who plays a blind character, locks horns with the killer and the rest of the story is about their encounter.
The film has been directed by Milind Rau, who is best known for his Tamil horror-thriller Aval.
Talking about the project, Milind said in a statement: “Tamil audiences love a good thriller, and I wanted to create a movie unlike any that the genre has seen in Kollywood.”
“Netrikann is special because of the central character who is visually impaired and uses sheer intelligence and presence of mind to confront a deadly serial kidnapper. No one could have essayed the role better than Nayanthara who has brilliantly brought alive a character who can’t see, but is extremely quick-witted. High-octane action and drama, along with the unexpected twists in the storyline, makes Netrikann a must watch, especially for viewers who love a good whodunit packed with crime, thrill, and action,” he added.
The trailer also confirmed that the film will premiere worldwide on August 13 on Disney+ Hotstar.
