Thala 57 or better known as Ajith Kumar’s Vivegam is Tamil language spy thriller. The title Vivegam was announced in February with a poster of the film. Vivegam is Ajith Kumar’s career biggest film as it marks his 25th year in the film industry. Ajith plays an Indian spy as a man on a mission in Europe. Vivegam is 75% shot internationally and some of the shoot took place in Ramoji film city. Vivegam stars Kajal Aggarwal and Vivek Oberoi as well with the identity of main antagonist still unknown. Teaser of Vivegam was launched on 11 May and it broke Kabali’s record of reaching fastest 5 million views. Director Siva and Ajith have worked together in the past, one of their recent successful collaboration was Vedalam in 2015.
Vivegam is surrounding the news because the plot of the film is still unknown to media and general public while music has been released. Thala Ajith is seen in a completely new action avatar where he is heading an army base in Europe. Initially there was the news that Ajith’s Vivegam and Vijay’s Mersal will be clashing at the box office like they have in the past but later on it was clarified that Mersal will release in October.
Siva and Ajith have proven to be one of the most successful director duo in Tamil cinema. Vivegam’s teaser had no other cast member in it and hence the roles played Kajal Aggarwal and Vivek Oberoi are still a mystery. Ajith’s Vivegam will hit the cinema screens on 24 August and the film is expected to open with 95% occupancy.
