The mysterious teaser of Mohanlal’s 12th Man opens up on a rainy night in an after party location. “Everybody has three lives — Public life, Private life and Secret life”. Based on this, we are shown the happy faces during the party. Then, the teaser gives us glimpses of the private life of different characters and how it is not as happy as the public one. With no details revealed about their secret lives in the teaser, it appears that exploring their secret lives might be the major plot line of the film.
The heavy downpour, the half empty juices, broken chairs and other props suggest that the party might not have ended on the right note. The teaser ends with Mohanlal saying, “Let’s blow the final whistle”. While it does not give much details about the plot, it looks like the film will be centered around people who attend the party and their secret lives.
