The trailer of Udhayanidhi Stalin, Nithya Menen, and Aditi Rao Hydari starrer Psycho is out now. The Mysskin directorial is bankrolled by Arun Mozhi Manickam under his Double Meaning Productions banner.
The silent short trailer features a montage of disturbing and intriguing shots. We find Aditi Rao trapped somewhere, Udhayanidhi composing music, director Ram instructing a bunch of cops and an unidentified murderer at points. All of this backed by the tune of Für Elise, Ludwig van Beethoven’s most popular compositions. The trailer is rife with suspense which will definitely keep audiences guessing.
Actor Udhayanidhi Stalin took to Twitter to launch the trailer.

Psycho is touted to be a psychological thriller. The film is reportedly based on the tale of Angulimala (finger necklace) which is a central story in Buddhism. According to Buddhist literature, Angulimala was a coldblooded bandit who murdered people and made a necklace of their fingers until his meeting with the Buddha, at which point he followed the Buddha to a monastery and embraced monkhood. Udhayanidhi Stalin plays Gautham (which is Buddha’s name) who reportedly imparts knowledge to the serial killer.
“We at Double Meaning Productions are really excited to release the Psycho trailer today. It will be attached with Darbar which is releasing tomorrow and I can’t wait to see the audiences stay engrossed with the full-length feature film,” says producer Arun Mozhi Manickam.
Apart from the lead, actors Singampuli and Renuka Chouhan also play significant roles. On the technical front, PC Sreeram has handled camera Isaignani Ilayaraja has composed music and Anthony has taken up editing responsibilities.
Psycho will hit screens on January 24, 2020. Earlier the film was set to release on December 27, 2019, but was later postponed to this date for a Pan-India release.
“This is the first film that Double Meaning productions is releasing on this scale. The CBFC has really cooperated with our request and ensured that we retain the film’s title. We hope that the film finds acceptance across the country since the movie has a great premise and presentation. I know that as the producer of the film when I praise it people will think I am marketing the film. But, I genuinely believe that audiences will go on an exciting journey with this movie because of all the plot elements in the movie,” said Arun Mozhi.
