The first track from actor Dhanush’s upcoming movie Maaran was unveiled on January 26, marking the occasion of Republic Day. Titled ‘Polladha Ulagam’, the track is sung by actor Dhanush, while the rap portion is written and performed by ‘Enjoy Enjaami’ and Casteless Collective fame rapper Arivu. Set to tune by GV Prakash, ‘Polladha Ulagam’ has lyrics by Vivek. The upbeat song features visuals of Dhanush shaking a leg in what looks like an abandoned warehouse. 

Unveiling the track, Sathya Jyothi Films, the production banner bankrolling the film, wrote: “Presenting you the mass anthem #PolladhaUlagam video song ft. the dashing @dhanushkraja from #Maaran.” Helmed by Karthick Naren, Maaran stars actors Malavika Mohanan and Dhanush in the lead. Dhanush is likely to essay the role of an investigative journalist in the movie. The film is set to premiere on streaming platform Disney Plus Hotstar in four languages including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. It is bankrolled by Sendhil Thygarajan and Arjun Thyagarajan  under the banners of Sathya Jyothi Films and TG Thyagarajan.

Earlier, a motion poster set against the backdrop of a crime scene was unveiled on January 15, on the festival of Pongal. Holding a weapon, Dhanush sports an intense look in the motion poster. We also see injured men lying on the ground suggesting that Dhanush has fought them off. A magazine or newspaper clipping is also seen in the opening shot.
