The upcoming Tamil film Aruvi with Aditi Balan in the lead role has generated quite a buzz. From the quirky posters of the film to the teaser and now the trailer, Aruvi looks very new and fresh for Tamil cinema.
Said to be an eco-social drama, written and directed by Arun Prabhu Purushothaman who makes his debut with the film, Aruvi had its world premiere at the 19th Shanghai International Film Festival last year in China.
The film has been produced by Dream Warrior Pictures which recently delivered the blockbuster Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru.
Aditi Balan is a lawyer by profession. From the trailer, it appears that the debut actor is raring to take Kollywood by storm with her swag levels. Whether that's dialogue delivery or smoking a cigar in style.
The trailer suggests that Aditi plays Aruvi, a young woman who is arrested by the cops, and harassed for some kind of "terrorist" activities. Her story comes to the viewers through flashback sequences as she thinks about her past, even as she's being tortured. The film also looks like it will be rich in black humour.
Aruvi will hit the screens on December 15 this year. So far, films like Taramani, Magalir Mattum and Aramm, which had women in lead roles, have managed to generate an interest in the audience and bring people to theatres. Can a debut woman actor have the same effect? Going by the response to the promos so far, Aruvi might just pull off the unexpected!
