'Puli' trailer gives fans Disney experience
The theatrical trailer of Tamil superstar Vijay-starrer "Puli", which was unveiled on Thursday, gives fans the experience of a Disney film.

The 114-second trailer is set against an imaginary land ruled by an evil princess, played by Sridevi, whose look is neatly inspired from Hollywood star Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent".

The CG-heavy trailer had close to 56 CG shots spearheaded by the national award-winning RC Kamalakannan with good support from six-time national award winning editor Sreekar Prasad. The trailer is beautifully presented exposing the gist of the story to the viewers.

“In a land ruled by darkness. There is only one ray of hope” – Vijay, going by the trailer, comes as the ray of hope to save people from the clutches of the evil princess.. This hints at the basic premise of the plot and what to expect from the film, if not anything more. When Vijay wears his hair loose, rides on a horse amidst raging fire in the background like a valiant warrior, it was intensifying shot raises curiosity and urges to watch the movie.

பாசத்துக்கு முன்னாடி தான் நா பனி.. பகைக்கு முன்னாடி நா புலி.

The trailer ends on a high note with a dialogue that goes, "Only with regards to love I melt like a dewdrop. When it comes to enmity, I'm a tiger".

The CGI-laden trailer offers a wholesome experience. From the outset, the film looks like a fusion of fantasy, action, thriller and lots of comedy. We also get to see comedians like Robo Shankar and Vidyu Raman among others as dwarfs in a blink and miss shot.

Shruti Haasan and Hansika Motwani play Vijay's love interest in the fantasy drama directed by Chimbu Deven.

With a number of genres infused in this grandeur, keep your fingers crossed and hope that Chimbudevan has not bitten off more than he could chew. The film has music by Devi Sri Prasad, and is slated to release on September 17.
