The official trailer of Praana, Nithya Menen’s most awaited psychological thriller, was released on Thursday. The trailer of this multilingual film, made in Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi, was well received at Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year. Directed by VK Prakash, the film has only one actor all through its runtime. The trailer of this multilingual film, made in Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi, was well-received at Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year.

The trailer introduces the audience to Nithya’s character, Tara Anuradha, who is an author. Tara's character has been well-introduced in the trailer - she stands for freedom and her book is aptly titled ‘Music of Freedom’. The trailer then leads the audience to a haunted house, where the rest of the story is set to unfold.

With chilling sound effects and staggering visuals, the trailer sets up good anticipation for this thriller. A series of unexplained events - rattling bookshelves, balls flying everywhere and chair moving across the room by itself - build up an eerie setting for Praana.

Oscar-winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty and Amrit Pritam have worked on the film’s sound effects, with Praana being the first Indian film to be shot in the sound sync format. Produced by Suresh Raj, Praveen S Kumar and Anita Raj, the story has been scripted by Rajesh Jayaraman, with PC Sreeram cranking the camera and composer Louiz Banks composing the film’s music.

Speaking about the film to TNM, Nithya said, “Four languages was definitely quite a challenge. A film is usually made in one language, we do one take and we’re done with that particular scene or that shot. I usually don’t even like bilinguals because, for an artiste, it’s quite an irritating process. You finish a scene; then, you have to revisit it and that too, in another language. It’s not an easy thing to do. Four languages back to back, learning all the dialogues... and it was just me! So it was challenging.”
