National Award-winning Tamil filmmaker Vetri Maaran's next film Viduthalai is one of the most-anticipated films in development he is working on at present and is his next big theatrical venture after Asuran in 2019. Touted to be a crime thriller, the film produced by Elred Kumar's RS Infotainment banner will see popular Tamil comedy actor Soori making his debut as the hero as a policeman, while 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi will be appearing as a convict and his role is described as central to the story. With Viduthalai announced to be coming out as two films, the makers announced on Friday evening, December 30, that the shooting has wrapped up on both installments, with post-production work currently in full swing for the first part, while also sharing a few photos from the shooting spot where the team can be seen in good spirits. 

In the new set of pictures from the Viduthalai shooting spot, we see Vetri Maaran along with producer Elred Kumar, the film's hero Soori, cinematographer-actor R. Velraj, among others in the crew, amidst scenes of celebration, while also posing for pictures. Based on acclaimed Tamil writer B. Jeyamohan's short story titled Thunaivan, the upcoming two-parter film being released in Tamil Nadu by Red Giant Movies is said to be an intense crime drama and will revolve around Soori and 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi, who is playing a crucial role, with the star cast also featuring names like Prakash Raj, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Rajiv Menon, Chethan, and Bhavani Sre among others. 

Viduthalai is also the first time Vetri Maaran and legendary composer and 'Maestro' Ilaiyaraaja have teamed up, and expectations for their collaboration are massive among fans, who have been waiting for the duo to come together and work on a film for a long time. For a while now, the makers have also teased the action in the film to be on a grand scale and stunt choreographer Peter Hein is said to have conceived top-notch sequences.
