Silambarasan TR's Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is scheduled to arrive in theatres on September 15 and the film is set to be one of the biggest releases in the actor's career to date. Directed by blockbuster filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon, the upcoming gangster film has been produced by Dr. Ishari K. Ganesh's Vels Film International banner and is being presented across Tamil Nadu by Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies banner. With the film's theatrical release now only two weeks away, the makers on Friday, September 2, released the highly-anticipated Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu at the audio launch event held at the Vels University in Pallavaram, Chennai. 

The Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu trailer shows STR leading the charge from his humble beginnings in a small village in Tamil Nadu before he arrives under the big lights of Mumbai, Maharashtra. The actor is seen getting involved with the wrong people and the visuals show him taking on bigwigs in the underworld, while also making new friends, falling in love, and also forming a stronger bond with his family. The VTK trailer also shows Simbu's radical transformation from a simpleton to a ruthless gangster and we can expect him to come out all guns blazing. The biggest surprise factor in the Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu trailer is towards the end with the announcement of "Part 1 - The Kindling" thus sparking an ignition in our hearts and minds of what to expect in this first installment and also what the team is planning for the sequel.

STR's Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is the third time the actor has collaborated with Gautham Menon and A. R. Rahman after their previous box office hits Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (2010) and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada (2016). Popular Telugu heroine Siddhi Idnani is making her Tamil cinema debut in the film, which also stars iconic actress Radikaa Sarathkumar, Siddique, Neeraj Madhav, and Appukutty among others in major supporting roles. VTK is an important film for Gautham Menon as it is set amidst a rural backdrop and has him entering a new zone in terms of genre. Likewise, Silambarasan too will be looking to come out with yet another power-packed performance in Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu after last year's time-loop thriller Maanaadu, which went on to become the highest-grossing film in the actor's career.
