Puli trailer was awaited by millions of fans all over the world and the wait is finally over as the official theatrical trailer of Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Puli has been released by the makers of the movie.
Puli is one of the most anticipated Tamil movie of recent times and the 1 minute 53 second video (trailer) has literally taken the anticipation of fans and movie buffs to a whole new level.
It was earlier reported that the trailer will have more than 40 VFX shots while the earlier released teaser just had 4 such shots. Kamalakannan, the man responsible for Puli's special effects had revealed that the movie will have a total of 2200 VFX shots.
But going by the trailer, it looks like the video was cut with an intention of revealing only a minuscule of the total grandeur the entire movie might house.
For instance, the trailer shows a glimpse of a giant; a character that might remind us of a monster from a Harry Potter flick and then there is this shot where a black jaguar attacks Vijay and of course there are lilliput like characters.
Now the most important thing is, if the VFX team finds success in showcasing these characters convincingly on the big screen, make no mistake, we have a Tamil fantasy film that might match the standards of a Hollywood flick.
Wait, the trailer has something more to offer. Before the video comes to an end, a person with long hair makes his way into the scene riding a horse. And that might just be Vijay's second look in the movie.
Take a look at the slides below to know more about the trailer:
Looks like Sudeep the antagonist takes over the kingdom forcefully from Sridevi. He looks like a proper ancient warrior with his long hair.
Though Sridevi is reportedly playing the role of a queen, she looks more like a witch with her extravagant crown and crooked eyebrows. Is there a surprise element when it comes to the veteran actress' character?
Though the teaser and trailer looks imposing in which the art department has managed to score to the fullest, Vijay's look has attracted a lot of criticism as the look is a total mismatch for an alleged historical flick.
More Than What Meets The Eye?
Vijay's looks might be criticized just by looking at the teaser and trailer but Puli might not be a historical movie after all. It is a fantasy thriller and that might explain why the Kaththi star's hairstyle in Puli.
Robo Shankar, Imman 'Annachi', Vidyullekha Raman and Telugu actor Ali have been showcased as the imaginary characters called 'lilliputs'.
Lilliputs Aimed At Entertaining Kids?
As we all know Vijay has a lot of fans below the age of 10. These lilliput characters might've been designed keeping kids in mind. They should also take care of the comedy sequences of Puli.
Looks like Thambi Ramaiah has bagged an interesting role in Puli going by his wacky hairstyle.
Sudeep With Jasper
Looks like Jasper plays Sudeep's henchman. There is also a fight sequence between him and Vijay.
Art Department And VFX
As mentioned earlier, the art department and VFX team have scored big in the 1 min 53 sec video. Creating an entire kingdom is not a joke and it looks like the team has managed to come up with an efficient display of art.
Will Puli Live Up To Its Expectation?
Puli has gathered a lot of hype and expectations from movie buffs across the globe. All that remains to be seen now is if the fantasy thriller can fulfill its expectations come September 17th.
