Before you see Thala Ajith in Vivegam teaser, you feel his presence in dimly lit silhouettes, an unseen man zooming away on a motorcycle and outrunning bullets. But this is not the slightly overweight Ajith who could never be bothered by the way he looks. This is a new Ajith, with abs and a buffed physique who runs with agility and will also take his shirt off. Unfortunately for his fans, he doesn’t do so in the teaser. But take away these changes and the rest remains the same as Vivegam teaser lands — Thala’s ability to own the screen, his whistle-a-minute dialogues and memorable action sequences. The result is the same too — records went toppling as the teaser got over 5 million views in 12 hours.
Watch: Vivegam teaser starring Ajith
For those who came in late, Ajith’s Vivegam is a spy thriller and brings back his superhit jodi with director Siruthai Siva. They have earlier delivered Veeram and Vedalam. Ajith plays a soldier who is part of a counter-terror squad and has promised to keep India safe from external threats. The various stylish images of Ajith which have been releasing from the film’s shooting have kept the buzz about this film strong. As Ajith looks lean and mean, his fans have very high expectations from the thriller.
