Vishnu Vishal’s ‘Mohandas’ Is Not One To Follow Ahimsa; Title Announcement Teaser Out Now

Vishnu Vishal At The 'Kaadan' Press Meet

The title announcement teaser of actor Vishnu Vishal‘s next is out now. The film has been titled MohanDas and is being helmed by Kalavu fame Murali Karthick. The film is being bankrolled by the actor himself under his Vishnu Vishal Studioz banner. This is the 6th production of VV Studioz after Velainnu Vanthutta VellakaranKathanayaganSilukkuvarpatti Singam, an untitled project, and FIR.


Vishnu is seen hammering something, a human being, possibly, with blood splattering all over his t-shirt and hands. He then walks up to a room, removes his t-shirt and smears the blood on his hands all over his ripped chest. We then find him dropping the t-shirt into his washing machine and sitting outside it anxiously.

The trailer begins with Mahatma Gandhi’s quote “The future depends on what you do today” and ends with his name, the title, Mohandas. There’s also a line that says that it might be a true story. We’ll have to wait to see why they chose the name of the man who preached ahimsa and his famous ‘three monkeys’ for this teaser…

Vishnu Vishal took to Twitter to release the teaser.

On Thursday, the actor had put out a poll asking if he should release the poster on Saturday. He also added that the shooting of the film was to begin today, but has been indefinitely postponed owing to the pandemic. After he received a positive response, he decided to reveal the title on April 11.

The thriller film will have Vignesh Rajagopalan handling cinematography, Sundaramurthy KS composing music, Kripakaran Purushothaman on the edit and Poorthi Pravin on costumes.

Meanwhile, Vishnu Vishal who was last seen in  Silukkuvarpatti Singam, will next be seen in Manu Anand‘s FIR and Prabhu Solomon‘s Kaadan. While the former hasn’t completed production yet, the latter was set for release on April 2nd, 2020 which has now been postponed.

The FIR team had recently recorded a song titled ‘Payanam’ rendered by Abhay Jodhpurkar. The actor also announced that VV Studioz has stalled all post-production and promotional activity for their films and requested people to practice social distancing.
