Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu shows the rise of a don

Director Gautham Menon’s upcoming film, Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, features  Simbu in the lead role.

The makers have unveiled the film’s trailer amid huge expectations.

The three-minute-long trailer shows Simbu as Muthu, who hails from a village. We can also see him handling guns and other weapons.

The trailer begins with an ominous voiceover, in Menon’s signature style.

Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu documents the rise of Muthu, a naive simpleton, in a notorious world of crime.

Looks like the film, which is subtitled as Part 1: The Kindling, is part of a duology.  The film will be released in the theatres on September 15.
