The second poster of Velaikkaran is out and it doesn’t reveal much. In fact, it is the title logo that catches one’s attention than more than actors Sivakarthikeyan and Fahadh Faasil.
The poster was released on Tuesday, coinciding with Fahadh’s birthday who is making his Tamil debut with Velaikkaran. In a gesture for Fahadh on his birthday, the team has also released the poster in Malayalam.
While the previous poster showed Sivakarthikeyan straddling the worlds of the prosperous and the downtrodden, the second poster doesn’t reveal anything new. We see both Sivakarthikeyan and Fahadh with serious faces, against a backdrop of slums. Fahadh is dressed formally while Shiva dons a casual attire, a reiteration of a suggestive battle between the have and have-nots.
The logo, however, looks interesting as a lot of symbols indicative of professions have been stylised to form the letters. We have a clenched fist, mike, cog, screw, spanner, star and a computer mouse – indicative of different professions and industries. Is it a battle between the blue-collar jobs and the white-collar jobs? We will have to see.
Another face which is missing is Nayanthara or the Lady Superstar as she is fondly called by her fans. Interestingly, the actor has not been featured in both the posters released by the team. She has been paired with Sivakarthikeyan for the first time.
