The makers of Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, lady superstar Nayanthara’s upcoming flick, released the trailer of the movie on Saturday. Directed by Chakri Toleti, the movie is a supernatural thriller and has Nayanthara playing the role of a person with a speech disability, stuck in a haunted villa.
The one minute 30 seconds long trailer takes us on a chilling ride through the bungalow where Nayanthara lives, far away in a foreign land. The trailer begins with the loud cry of a child, with a woman talking in English. Nayanthara is a new occupant at the bungalow and is seen exploring the huge palace, mysterious enough to set the mood of the movie.
The sequences are bereft of dialogues but manage to send a shiver down the spine with the recurring chatter between the child and the woman. The bungalow is typically ‘haunted’ – with a door that shuts by itself, dogs barking incessantly, trees swaying in the wind, spooky ghostly figures following Nayanthara…some scenes look like they’ve been taken straight out of an English horror thriller. The trailer ends with Nayanthara being punched to the floor and an eerie music playing in the background.
Kolaiyuthir Kaalam also has Bhoomika Chawala, Rohini Hattingadi and Malayalam actor Prathap Pothen playing pivotal roles. The cinematography of the film is done by Corey Geryak, while the editing is done by Rameshwar Bhagat.
Nayanthara also has Airaa lined up for release, which is again a horror thriller. The movie will feature the actor in two very diverse characters. The film’s star cast also includes Kalaiyarasan, Yogi Babu, Jayaprakash and Malayalam actor Kulappulli Leela. The film has music by 8 Thottakal fame KS Sundaramurthy. The film is directed by Sarjun, who sparked controversy with his short film, Lakshmi.
The year 2018 was terrific for Nayanthara with blockbuster films such as Kolamavu Kokila and Imaikka Nodigal to her credit. Her last release was Viswasam, in which she reunited with Ajith. She will next be seen opposite Chiranjeevi in the Tollywood biopic Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
