Movie promotion is as much of an art as making the movie itself. And it seems the makers of Tamizh Padam 2.0 are ticking all the right boxes.
Taking its trademark parody culture to a new level, the poster features actor Shiva, the star of the comedy franchise, pulling an O Panneerselvam. Dressed in a crisp white shirt and veshti, Shiva sits meditating in front of a memorial, while a host of photographers click pictures of him in the background.
The resemblance is unmistakable. Shiva looks exactly like Deputy Chief Minister OPS did, when he meditated at the Jayalalithaa memorial just before setting off an unprecedented rebellion in the ruling AIADMK.
The second look poster has got people all over social media ROFLing, with the tweet by makers Y Not Studios getting over 500 retweets and over 1,500 likes within the first four hours. The film reportedly stars stars Aishwarya Menon, Disha Pandey, Sathish, Santhana Bharathi, Manobala, R Sundarrajan, Nizhalgal Ravi and Chethan.
The team’s first look poster set Twitter aflutter when it announced that Tamizh Padam 2.0 will release on May 25, 2018, and that there will be a ‘Tamil Rockers release’ the very next day. Poking fun at the heartburn the online pirates cause the industry by releasing all latest movies within days of their theatrical release, the first look poster called Tamil Rockers the film’s “official piracy partner”.
Now the teaser of the movie released which is resembling almost all the top actors and all the big house produced movies of Kollywood cinema.
