The trailer of Thalapathy Vijay's Beast dropped yesterday (April 2) and it looked highly promising and solid. The intriguingly cut trailer has set high expectations for the movie and the fans are eagerly looking forward to seeing the film on the big screens. Beast will feature Vijay playing a secret RAW Agent - Veera Raghavan who is on a mission to save innocent people who are held as hostages in a shopping mall in Chennai, by terrorists. Beast promises to be a high-octane action entertainer and the packaging looks stylish and exciting. The trailer gave us a brief sketch of the main characters in Beast, including that of director Selvaraghavan, who will be playing the role of a mediator between the Government and the terrorists.

Vijay will be locking horns against a set of terrorists who are masked for obvious reasons. Vijay's films are known to have had strong villains and we've witnessed that in films like Theri, Mersal, and Master. Ever since Beast was officially announced, the film buffs have been waiting to know the villain who would be posing a tough fight for the protagonist. Initially, Selvaraghavan was rumoured to play the antagonist, but the trailer gives us a completely different picture of him. Having said that, an official confirmation of the villain of Beast has surfaced on social media and it has grabbed the attention of the fans.

Popular Malayalam actor Shine Tom Chacko who is a part of Beast will be playing one of the main antagonists. Shine officially confirmed the same through an Instagram story. Shine will be playing one of the masked men in the shopping mall, probably, one of the heads of the terrorist gang. Shine Tom Chacko has delivered impactful performances in several Malayalam films and it is going to be interesting to see what he has to offer in his Tamil debut. Stay tuned to this space for more exciting updates.
