Yung filmmaker Karthick Naren made his mark in Kollywood with Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru, which received much critical acclaim. While his second film Naragasooran is yet to see the light of day, his third film Mafia, starring Arun Vijay and Prasanna, is all set for release.
The teaser of Mafia was unveiled on social media on September 16. The visuals of Karthick Naren’s film promise an intriguing cat-and-mouse game between the leads. From the first look, the teaser will remind you of Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi-starrer Vikram Vedha, which also dealt with a similar theme.
Here is the much anticipated teaser of #Mafia.. good to see young talents coming up with unique concepts, wish the team all the very best… 👍@LycaProductions@karthicknaren_M @arunvijayno1 @Prasanna_actor @priya_Bshankar #MafiaTeaser https://t.co/Rhb4oYbKen— A.R.Murugadoss (@ARMurugadoss) September 16, 2019
While Arun Vijay’s character is compared to a Lion, antagonist Prasanna is compared to a cunning fox. The film is the battle between a lion’s strength and a fox’s intellect. Along with slick visuals, the teaser has Arun Vijay and Prasanna engaging in a war of words about each other’s strengths.
Meanwhile actor Shanthanu who is known for acting in films like Siddhu +2 and Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga, posted a tweet. He expressed his happiness on seeing actors like Arun Vijay and Prasanna who worked very hard in film industry to excel in it, getting featured in a same film.
