The trailer of National Award-winning director Mani Ratnam’s much-awaited film Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (Nawab in Telugu) was unveiled today by A R Rahman, who has scored the music for the upcoming multi-starrer.
The trailer gives us more than a glimpse of the storyline. Senapathi, played by Prakash Raj, is a powerful gang leader who is also a businessman. His three sons Varadan (Aravind Swamy), Thyagu (Arun Vijay) and Ethi (Silambarasan) take after him and struggle to establish who is the alpha.
Varadan, the trailer says, is not very educated and is more of a thug. His brothers, on the other hand, are sophisticated but still have a violent streak in them.
Aditi Rao Hydari plays a journalist covering the havoc created by this one family. Jyotika plays Varadan’s wife, while Vijay Sethupathi is the police officer with links to the family.
“My brothers are educated and will not venture into anything untoward,” Varadan says in the trailer.
CCV’s first trailer begins with the introduction of Prakash Raj as Senapathi, the big bad businessman being probed for being a mafia don among other titles. The big fat family we saw earlier in the posters is courtesy Senapathi and his three rugged sons.
