Actor Ajith, who was last seen playing an Interpol agent in Vivegam, will be next seen in a full-length rural avatar in Viswasam, which marks his fourth time collaboration with director Siva. The film has Ajith and Nayanthara as the lead pair.

In a recent interview to Tamil magazine Cinema Vikatan director Siva told, "Viswasam will be entirely a new format of Ajith sir's film. It will be a full and full family entertainer which happens in the backdrop of  village called Koduvilarpatti in Theni district and after interval it switches to city backdrop. It is not a dual avatar film, Ajith sir's character name is Thukku Durai  who is a local ruffian in Madurai and for the first time he will be seen speaking in Madurai slang. The star cast has a handful of comedians who will be traveling with the hero in different stages of the film. Nayanthara who is teaming up with the actor for the fourth time will be seen in a character called Niranjana and it will be a spoken about powerful role for her in the film. I am working with composer Imman for the first time and the album has 5 songs. Imman has composed all the five in different styles".

The motion poster of the film was released on Sunday and became an instant hit among Thala fans. Within 72 hours, Viswasam motion poster has gained over 7 million views on YouTube.

Following the debacle of Vivegam, Ajith has pinned high hopes Viswasam, which was officially launched in the month of May this year and the film will hit the screens for Pongal 2019.

The star cast includes Vivek, Robo Shankar, Thambi Ramaiah, Kovai Sarala, Sandhya Janak, Yogi Babu, Kalairani, Bose Venkat, Sujatha Sivakumar, Ramesh Thilak, Jangiri Madhumitha and Namo Narayana.

It may be mentioned here that D Imman is composing tunes for an Ajith starrer for the first time in his career and therefore music buffs are waiting in anticipation for the soundtrack and the core technical crew includes Vetri for camera work and editing by Ruben.

Presented by TG Thyagarajan, Viswaasam is being bankrolled by Arjun Thyagarajan and Sendhil Thyagarajan under the banner Sathya Jyothi Films.

Viswasam is made on a much lesser budget than Vivegam, which was a whopping Rs 120 crore action spectacle.
