'Vettai Mannan' is a crime action thriller that features Silambarasan aka Simbu and Deeksha Seth in the lead roles and is directed by debutant Nelson, who has popular Tamil reality shows to his credit. This film is produced by SS Chakravarthy and has tunes set in by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The project is said to be a three heroine one and a foreign damsel is said to play one of the female leads.
The film also has Simbu's real life friend, Jai, playing a pivotal role. In fact, the plot is set on Simbu - Jai friendship, both Simbu and Jai play rowdies of North Chennai, and after Jai is murdered brutally, Simbu sets for avenging Jai's death. It showcases how a local goon from the streets of North Chennai, who kills people for few thousands of rupees, goes on to become an international gangster who is paid in billions!
It is said that when the team initially approached Tollywood's glam doll Deeksha Seth to do the film, she refused as she had her examinations on. But then, when they showed her a four minute teaser of the film, she signed on the dotted lines without even listening to the script further. Recently, the teaser of the film was launched, showcasing Simbu as a pucca gangster or must we say a contract killer?
The team has now started on their journey to Brazil. The first half of the movie is set in North Madras whilst post-intermission the movie takes us to never-seen-before locales in Brazil. Simbu will be involved in action-packed sequences, and it is said that Simbu will do these stunts without using any dupe...
With a promising debutant director who believes truly that his screenplay is the hero, young talents and an action-packed narration with Yuvan's tunes, 'Vettai Mannan' is definitely a reliable package, and if it manages to conquer our audience, it will be a perfect debut for Nelson and Deeksha and another milestone in Simbu's career.
