Dhanush starrer Anegan's official teaser is out. The one-minute long video gives you a hint that this is a typical Dhanush film - star-crossed lovers with the boy coming from a humble background and one who must fight hard and beat all odds to get his love. Only there seems to be a re-incarnation angle to it.

The teaser takes us back and forth from the present to the past in what looks to be south-east Asia, possibly Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Hopelessly-in-love couple, in an idyllic world, possibly meets a painful end.

Cut to the present. Dhanush's character does what the actor routinely plays - a young man from a lower middle class background who trips for the pretty girl in town, played by Amyra Dastur, Tamil cinema's freshest import from Bollywood.

But of course, there's evil lurking close by. Kaarthik is the villain, or is he the anti-hero? We'll have to wait and watch.

What's certain is that Anegan promises to be a usual Dhanush entertainer with great music and credible performances.
