We first see IB Karthikeyan running and hiding from someone on a road and then a cop Karunas who is at a crime scene informing a higher official regarding the death of a woman. While these two seem to be happening at the same spot, we’re parallelly introduced to Aadhav consoling his girlfriend at a supermarket that he plans to loot.
What follows is the men holding out guns to the camera, two women crying out in fear, a random gunshot, different people fearfully seated in the driving seat of what seems like the same car, and finally a woman in the bathtub scoffing at a bunch of people for their foolishness. Though only little sense can be made of this, the trailer hints at a potential promising thriller.
In a tweet, Elan mentioned that the trailer reportedly shot in one-night paved the way for his first film Pyaar Prema Kaadhal. Yuvan was reportedly impressed with the trailer and agreed to produce PPK. Elan also added that the trailer isn’t the sign of an upcoming film and is a mere pilot trailer from five years ago.
Thankyou @thisisysr sir for releasing this 🙂 we shot this trailer 5 years back and Yuvan sir was impressed with the fact that we shot this in a single night and gave me the opportunity in PPK 🙂 this is not any upcoming movie and it’s just a pilot trailer 🙂 https://t.co/q8b7fhuVkh
