Breathtaking trailer of 24 is out

Suriya is out there with the breathtaking trailer of his upcoming sci-fi action pack, 24. The 2 minute 15 second trailer is a basket of gifts for the Suriya fans. Even though all the important characters are introduced in the trailer, it doesn’t give any hint about the plot. All we can gather from the bits and pieces of dialogues is the wild chase behind some miraculous scientific invention by some good and bad men.

It seems the movie will be a celebration of mass moments for Surya fans. The older Surya seems to be chased by the baddie Surya, who is in a search of his precious possession, a watch. Suriya stuns the viewers with his three looks in the teaser. Samantha and Nithya Menon get a short introduction and the song sequences look picturesque. The visual effects department has done a good job and the trailer hints at a VFX extravaganza. The action sequences are delivered with a big bang.

The movie, which is directed by Vikram Kumar, features Suriya in a triple role. Even though the makers are light lipped about the details of the movie, sources close to the director reveal that 24 will be a time travel movie that can match with Hollywood flicks in this genre. Surya will be seen in three diverse roles as a scientist, gangster, and a surprise act. Some reports suggest that the third act will be the father of young Surya.

The movie has Samantha and Nithya Menon as leading ladies. Ajay, Sathyan, Saranya Ponvannan, Jnanpith-laureate Girish Karnad, Mohan Raman play other pivotal roles in the movie. The music is composed by the legendary AR Rahman and the movie is produced by Surya’s home banner 2D Entertainment.

This is the first time Surya appears in a negative character and it raises expectations sky high. The movie is lagging behind its schedule as the CGI works took more time than expected. The teaser release was scheduled on February 24, but postponed to the disappointment of fans. The title, 24, refers to the number of hours in a day and the movie deals with the concept of time travel.

Director Vikram Kumar has brought together the best technical support for 24. Thiru cranks the camera for the movie, while Parwin Pudi is the editor. The art director duo Amith and Subratha have done a stunning job in the teaser and the viewers can expect more. With 24, Surya and Kollywood take new heights and themes, which were exploited by Hollywood flick till now. The movie will have a worldwide release on April.
