Lyca Productions, who had a controversial run with Vijay’s Kaththi, has secured the overseas distribution rights of director Vetri Maaran’s experimental thriller Visaranai and the Tamil Nadu distribution rights of director Vignesh Shivan’s romantic comedy Naanum Rowdy Dhan. The official press release claims that the production house will be releasing Visaraanai sometime in December while Naanum Rowdy Dhan is gearing up for an October release.
Visaranai’s trailer was positively received for its unflinchingly gritty scenes. The film stars Attakathi Dinesh, Anandhi, Samuthirakani Aadukalam Murugadoss and Misha Ghoshal in important roles. It is also set to debut at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival in the ‘Orizzonti’ category, which focuses on new trends in film. Dinesh and Murugadoss play convicts in the film, which reportedly lasts for only sixty minutes.
Naanum Rowdy Dhan stars Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead. Music director Anirudh Ravichander is currently wrapping up the audio for the film, and an audio launch date is expected shortly. The film is the seventh film to be produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films.
