Suriya is undoubtedly one of the biggest superstars of contemporary Tamil Cinema. The versatile actor celebrated his 48th birthday on July 23rd. The makers of his upcoming film Kanguva surprised his fans by releasing the first glimpse of the film. Suriya himself took to Twitter to share the video. This called for double celebrations for all the actor’s fans. Kanguva has been creating headlines since its announcement. The 2 minutes 21-second-long video shows Suriya in the avatar of a fierce warrior and at a glimpse, it is mind-blowing.
The snippet grabs all your attention with a strong voiceover that praises Kanguva. It uses numerous hyperboles to illustrate and thereby introduce the Tamil hero to his audience. In the video, Kanguva is praised as a warrior who can instill fear in his foes, confront a White Tiger, capture a cloud, and ride the wild elephant of Mukkaadu. The first look of Suriya is awe-inspiring too. He appears adorning a white mask and a necklace of tiger paws. But the captivating power of his eyes in the close-up will always remain the highlight of the video.
DSP’s Music Takes Kanguva to New Heights
The background score by Devi Shri Prasad and the cinematography of Vetri Palanisany elevates the experience of the first glimpse. The atmosphere of the video might prejudice the audience into thinking that director Siva had tried to create a fantasy world. It has been clarified by the director in an earlier interview with Cinema Express that his film is not a tale of fantasy or mythology. He added that Suriya’s character too, does not have any superpowers.
Siva claims the events of Kanguva have been extracted from the history of Tamil Nadu. In realizing the 1500-year-old story he has created a world that resembles the magical world of a fantasy. Produced by Gnanvel Raja, the film marks the Tamil debut of Disha Patani. The film is scheduled to hit the theatres in the first half of 2024. The film will be dubbed in 10 languages.
