Actor-producer Vishal is busy promoting his forthcoming Tamil release Thupparivaalan, in which he plays a detective, modeled on Sherlock Holmes. The film is tipped to be a dark thriller, shot in quintessential Mysskin style, and Vishal said that he surrendered himself to the filmmaker. “From the way I walk and mouth my dialogues, I have acted how Mysskin wanted me to. Unlike my regular characters, my role in the film is of a very calm man.” He also confirmed that the film doesn’t have songs and feels audiences are ready to embrace such attempts if the content is good.
On the career front, Vishal has Sandakozhi 2 and Irumbuthirai in his kitty. He also confirmed that he will be doing the Tamil remake of NTR’s Temper, in which he played a foul-mouthed cop with no morals. “I quite liked Temper, and I plan to do it soon in Tamil. Before that, I have to complete the other two films which I have been postponing for a while now due to my Nadigar Sangam commitments. He hopes to wrap up Sandakozhi 2 by this year-end and bring it to cinemas early next year.
Kicked about Thupparivaalan, Vishal said the film will portray him in a different light. The film also stars Prasanna, Anu Emmanuel and Andrea Jeremiah. Actor-filmmaker Bhagyaraj is said to be playing the antagonist. Talking about the film, Mysskin had said in the past. “My characters are inspired from Sherlock and Watson but not entirely based on them. Everyone gets inspired from something or the other. Edgar Allen Poe came up with the first detective story and then came Sherlock Holmes. There is a thin line between inspiration and plagiarism.”
