After Darbar, Superstar Rajinikanth is now coming up with his latest outing Annaatthe. Directed by Siva, this movie features Keerthy Suresh, Nayanthara, Kushboo, and Meena in the other pivotal roles. The theatrical trailer of this masala entertainer has been unveiled just about a while ago. Going by it, this Siva-directorial film looks like a complete commercial potboiler filled with family emotions.
It has been a long time since we saw Rajini in a family drama. Most of his recent films are either political dramas (Kabali and Kaala) or action dramas (Petta and Darbar). But Annaatthe is a complete family drama that is set up in a rural area. Keerthy plays the role of Rajini’s younger sister while Nayan is seen as his love interest. How Rajini saves his village and family from the goons is the main crux of the movie.
Annaatthe seems to be a template film which we have seen many times in the past. But Rajini’s screen presence makes it entertaining. As people are waiting to see him in such a commercial potboiler, the film will definitely draw huge crowds to the theatres for sure.
It is being dubbed into Telugu as Peddanna. Both the Tamil and Telugu versions are slated for a worldwide release on November 4, on the occasion of Diwali. Sun Pictures is bankrolling the project and D. Imman is composing the music of it.
