The latest trailer of director Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam was released on Saturday, just five days before its worldwide theartical release. The video gives the audience more glimpse into the bloody power struggle between the three brothers as to who will take over the family business after the passing of their father Senapathi (Prakash Raj). Simbu plays Ethi, the youngest of the trio and he remains the focus of the new trailer.
Vijay Sethupathi also gets some spotlight in the trailer. He plays a character with grey shades. His loyalty seems to be up for grabs. The gangster drama seems to be full of twists and turns, betrayals and a lot of gun battles.

The film is generating a lot of expectations among the movie buffs for Ratnam has returned to the gangster genre after a gap of nearly three decades. His last film that was set in the underworld backdrop was Thalapathi (1991), which had Rajinikanth and Mammooty in the lead role. And before this film, the director had delivered Godfather-esque classic Nayakan (1987).
“I think he (Mani Ratnam) has gone back to his Nayakan days. He has got that energy back. The beauty of the evil,” said the Oscar-winning music director AR Rahman while talking about the film earlier.
On collaborating multiple times with the award-winning director, Aravind Swami had said at the audio launch of the film, “I have worked with him in eight films as you said. It may seem a lot to you. But, I wonder about the reasons why he did 12 other films without me.”
Chekka Chivantha Vaanam will hit the screens on September 27.
