Vellai Pookkal, an upcoming suspense thriller in Tamil has been directed by debutant Vivek Elangovan. The film is produced by Indus Creations, an arts group based in Seattle.

Starring Vivek in the lead role, it is a gripping tale of a retired police officer arriving in the US to visit his son. The police officer’s peaceful existence comes to a standstill with people around him disappearing in quick succession.

While he digs into the crime to find out who is behind it, someone close to him disappears compelling him to find the culprit soon. He eventually nails the culprit with the help of his friends and this tale certainly has many mysteries to be unraveled.

The technical crew of Vellai Pookkal includes Ramgopal Krishnaraju for music composition, with Jerald Peter cranking the camera and Praveen KL in charge of editing. While Vivek plays the main lead Rudhran in Vellai Pookkal the film's star cast includes Charle, Pooja Devariya, Dev and Paige Henderson.

The shooting of Vellai Pookkal took place in various locations in the Seattle metropolitan area, including WNP-3 and WNP-5 (more commonly known as the Satsop Nuclear Plant) and in Chennai. The film’s first look was released by actor Suriya on March 22 and the trailer was launched on March 26. Vellai Pookkal is slated for release on April 19.

Last seen in Ajith's Viswasam, Vivek has been roped in for Vijay's next tentatively titled Thalapathy63. The film will bring back the combination of Vijay and comedian Vivek after a gap of ten years. They were last spotted together in Dharani’s Kuruvi which released in 2008.

Meanwhile, Vivek will be teaming up with Sivakarthikeyan for his next to be directed by PS Mithran of Irumbuthirai fame. The duo will be sharing screen space for the first time in this film.
