On Pongal Day, the team of Maaran launched a first-look motion poster of their new Dhanush film. In the poster, we see the camera pull back through the staircase of an under-construction building, moving all the way up to a room where we Dhanush weidling a fountain pen.
One has to saw weild becasue instead of ink, the fountain pen's dripping with drops of blood, possibly from the battle his character has just had to fight. A literal take on the saying, "the pen in mightier than the sword," the team has implied a fitting first impression about a film in which Dhanush is playing a journalist. Given that this look is set in an under-construction building, he could very well be playing a scribe who has to take on the real-estate mafia or even corrupt builders like he did earlier in VIP.
It is being directed by Karthik Naren, who had most recently made 'Project Agni' in Netflix's anthology Navarasa. Apart from Dhanush, the film also stars Malvika Mohanan. The music is GV Prakash and the poster gives us a solid idea of the theme the film will be using.
Maaran is a direct release on Hotstar Disney, the star's second after Atrangi Re.
