Arun Vijay, who starred in Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, is back on screen with Thadam, directed by Magizh Thirumeni. The second trailer of the film released recently.


The trailer promises a nail-biting investigative story that reveals the dark side of Arun Vijay’s character in the film. He looks tough as the dialogue, Poramai, kovam, verupu,” is heard.

The trailer says that the movie is based on true stories. Director Magizh is said to have made an effort to examine the human nature that pushes one to commit a crime.
