Vijay Sethupathi had a very diverse 2019. He played Rajinikanth’s nemesis in Petta and was responsible for the big twist at the end. The film was a huge pongal blockbuster and became Vijay Sethupathi’s first success of the year. Then came Super Deluxe which had Vijay Sethupathi playing a transgender. It was a daring attempt which was appreciated by the audience. The film had an ensemble cast but Vijay Sethupathi stood out for his nuanced performance. Now his third release of the year Sindhubaadh gets a summer release date. This is also Arun Kumar’s third film with Vijay Sethupathi after Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi
We all love Panniyarum Padminiyum. It was a film with a lot of heart. It was about an old man’s love for the car. It was the film in which director Arun Kumar first joined hands with Vijay Sethupathi. The songs in the film were melody treats as the old couple rediscover love and again. The film had Aishwarya Rajesh as Vijay Sethupathi’s pair. The highlight of the film is the fact that the car is one of the characters in the film. It was an emotional feel good film. The film didn’t do well at the box office but has been appreciated over the years.
This forced Arun Kumar to take the commercial route as Vijay Sethupathi played a badass upright cop in Sethupathi. It was a commercial blockbuster for the Sethupathi – Arun Kumar combo. The film had the perfect ingredients for a cop film and was a success. This made them join hands for third time for Sindhbaadh. This time the film has music by none other than Yuvan Shankar Raja which is a major plus. Anjali plays the heroine. Now the big news is that the film is all set to release as a summer treat for Vijay Sethupathi fans. The film releases on May 16th.
