The trailer Maaran is a mix of many things one would expect from a mainstream film about journalism. Dhanush plays "one of the best investigative journalists" and he chances upon a scam (most likely related to real estate) that involves a powerful politician (Samthurikani). Malavika Mohanan, who plays his lover, also appears to be his colleague in a media company.
The trailer also hints at several media practices and this is why Dhanush's character has to explain the difference between giving the viewer what they want and giving them the truth. We get a sense that his father too was an incorruptible person, even though it is unclear if he too was in the media. The lead character's sister too is expected to play a vital role in the film. Perhaps a mix of a slick action thriller in the guise of a political film?
