Actor Sivakarthikeyan launched the trailer of his upcoming film Mr Local on Twitter on Sunday. And it looks like no different from his previous films and characters, a few comments pointed out. Written and directed by M Rajesh, Mr Local is a comedy film. It is scheduled for release on May 1.

Like in a majority of Tamil teasers and trailers, the hero of the story is introduced through an intense fight sequence, while the goons flip midair in slow motion and fall on the ground. Sivakarthikeyan plays the role of Manohar, who is endearingly called Mr Local.

The female lead, Nayanthara, makes a sassy entry, introducing her character, Keerthana Vasudevan, the CEO of an entertainment company. A few have pointed out the similarities between Keerthana and Vasundhara, Bollywood actor Kajol’s character in Soundarya Rajinikanth’s film VIP 2. Kajol plays the role of a chairperson of a construction company in the film.

From the look of the teaser, it seems like yet another man relentlessly chasing woman story. And of course, the film hints the usual male dominance and persistent pursuance for Keerthana’s love, despite stating that she does not like ‘local people’.

Sivakarthikeyan even makes an attempt at delivering dialogue in Malayalam. “My dear Keerthu, one day you'll come looking for Mano. I'll make it happen. I'm going to cuddle and play with this Dora Bujji. Understood?” he says.

Produced by KE Gnanavel Raja under his banner Studio Green, the music is composed by HipHopTamizha. Rokesh, Mirchi Vijay and KR Dharan have penned the lyrics. As seen as at the end of the teaser, the audio will release soon.

The trailer also features from groovy dance sequences at some foreign location. Dineshkumar has choreographed for the film.

The film also stars Radhikaa Sarathkumar, Thambi Ramaiya, Sathish, Yogi Babu, Roboshankar and Harija.

Mr Local marks the second collaboration of Nayanthara and Sivakarthikeyan after Velaikkaran.
