It looks like Vishnu Vishal and director Ram Kumar would be collaborating again, as sequel is on the cards for their super hit film Ratsasan.
In response to a tweet on Ratsasan, Vishnu Vishal tagged Ram Kumar asking if the sequel script is ready, to which the director replied that it is in process. The exchange has confirmed that the sequel might be happening soon, but other details are yet to be known.
Ratsasan, a serial-killer thriller, has been the talk of the town ever since its release as it turned out to be a surprise hit, leaving everybody in the trade quite stunned. Despite being a violent film about a police officer’s chase to catch a serial killer, the film has worked big time with multiplex audiences.
The film has recently created a new record and has been placed at first and third spot in Top rated Tamil films and Top-rated Indian films list by IMDB.
The makers of the film Ratsasan posted, “It is Indeed a Proud Moment for us. #AxessFilm Factory’s #RATSASAN has been ranked as the #1 Tamil film in #IMDB, Further, it has been ranked #3 in all Time Top Indian Movies. A feat to cherish. @Dili_AFF @dir_ramkumar @TheVishnuVishal @GhibranOfficial @Amala_ams @k_pooranesh.”
Notably, this is the third sequel in Vishnu Vishal’s kitty after Mundasupatti 2 and Indru Netru Naalai 2. Apart from these, the actor also has Manu Anand’s FIR, Prabhu Solomon’s Kaadan, and Kalavu-fame Karthick Murali’s Mohandas in the pipeline.
Ratsasan features music and background score composed by Ghibran, cinematography by P. V. Shankar and editing by San Lokesh. Production began in November 2016, with principal photography starting in June 2017. The film released on 5 October 2018, to mostly positive reviews from audience, and also became a commercial success, grossing ₹23 crore worldwide.
