Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai has got everyone's attention ever since the release of the first look in July 2016. Now, the curiosity about the film has gone up by several notches with the makers releasing a 50-second video named, "A glimpse of Kaatru Veliyidai", on Republic Day. The video shows actor Aditi Rao Hydari peeping out of a bus and enjoying the snowfall, while Karthi's voice-over recites lines from Subramanya Bharathi's poem set to AR Rahman's magical tune. 

Karthi, who will be playing a pilot, is also seen in a long-shot walking on a mountain. Going by the teaser, one can say that the movie will be obvious visual treat for the audience. It also marks the 25-year collaboration of Mani Ratnam and AR Rahman since Roja. The duo has done 15 films together and perhaps the nostalgia for Roja that the Kaatru Veliyidai visuals bring was deliberate. 

The film has an ensemble cast including veteran actor Lalitha, Shraddha Srinath, Rukmini Vijay Kumar, Delhi Ganesh and R.J Balaji. The theatrical distributing rights are owned by the renowned "Sri Thenandal Films". Produced by Madras Talkies, the movie is slated for an April 7 release.
