Amidst other releases this Friday is the Tamil-language action adventure film, Vanamagan, written and directed by A. L. Vijay. The film features Jayam Ravi and Sayyeshaa in the lead roles, along with Varun in an important role. The film which saw its production start in September 2016, had its teaser released in February 2017.
The film which is another example of the stories that Jayam Ravi has started to experiment with. The actor lately has appeared very choosy and didn’t collaborate with the director Vijay for his earlier projects as the director has been trying to get him in one of his films for too long now. The film which has Ravi speaking no dialogues, is a one of its kind project. It is being reported that the film in fact had a different language altogether which sounds like gibberish, but is not. The director Vijay is also have apparently told media about his intention to introduce the grammar and dictionary for the language invented for the film once the film has hit the screens.

While the film has received positive reviews by critics and audiences, it has also been performing well in theatres. Even the overseas markets have received the film well with expectations hovering at around six crores for its collection on first day. As the film has become the talk of the town for time being, the buzz may also die down in the coming days as nothing can be said for sure at this stage. The film’s premier on its US opening day has collected about 60 lacs which is a good mark to cross.
The film revolves around Jara (Ravi), a tribal in Andaman, who is a man trying to get away from his captors. The first half of the film, to showcase the wild, has been shot in Thailand, while the second half in Chennai. However, the film has been attempted to be treated like an action film, but it comes across more of a romantic comedy, with its second half brimming with love.
Catch the film in your nearest theatres.
