Movie promotion is as much of an art as making the movie itself. And it seems the makers of Tamizh Padam 2.0 are ticking all the right boxes.
Taking its trademark parody culture to a new level, the poster features actor Shiva, the star of the comedy franchise, pulling an O Panneerselvam. Dressed in a crisp white shirt and veshti, Shiva sits meditating in front of a memorial, while a host of photographers click pictures of him in the background.
The teaser of Tamizh Padam 2, sequel to the hilarious parody film that came out in 2010 directed by CS Amudhan, was released on Friday.The 40-second teaser is a laughter-fest, giving us a good idea of the films that have been handpicked by the makers to be parodied. But the cherry on the cake is the uncanny recreation of the swearing in ceremony of Deputy CM O Panneerselvam after Jayalalithaa’s demise. And it only gets better.
The sequel, being a parody of the cop genre, checks several of the cop films that have released in Tamil in recent years and includes some other blockbusters as well. There are references to Vishal’s Thupparivalan, Vijay’s Thuppaki and Mersal, Ajith’s Mankatha and Vivegam, and Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Vedha. The conspicuous absence of the Singam franchise makes one hope it has a special place in the main film, or perhaps the trailer.
Yesterday the trailer of Director Hari’s Saamy-2 released and it had all the eligibility to become a scapegoat for the Tamizh Padam crew. The Sequel of Saamy, a blockbuster movie back in 2003 which starred Vikram, Trisha is very well known for its engaging screenplay. But the dialogues which took place in Saamy-2 trailer is an absolute laughter and nowhere near to the dialogues of part-1. watch the trailer here:
The very day maker of the film sarcastically trolled the trailer by saying “thanks” by posting the trailer link of Saamy-2 in his twitter page.
