'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi's much-awaited Maamanithan is gearing up for a huge theatrical release soon and marks the actor's reunion with National Award-winning filmmaker Seenu Ramasamy after they previously collaborated in films like Thenmerku Paruvakaatru (2010) and Dharma Durai (2016). The upcoming film produced by Yuvan Shankar Raja's YSR Films has been announced for a grand release in Tamil Nadu and Kerala by producer-actor RK Suresh's Studio 9 banner. Billed to be an intense family drama, promotions are already underway with the makers on Saturday releasing the new Maamanithan trailer, which gives us a glimpse at the spectacle fans can expect once the film arrives on the big screen. 

Vijay Sethupathi is seen playing the role of an auto driver, who is married to Gayathrie Shankar, with the couple leading a happy life with their two kids. The Maamanithan trailer starts off showing sincere and hard-working Vijay Sethupathi, who aims to bring up his kids in the best environment possible. However, things go awry when plans take a negative turn due to an unexpected incident leading to a number of obstacles, with Vijay Sethupathi eventually shown in the trailer ending up on the banks of Varanasi. Based on the Maamanithan trailer, one can assume there will be a lot to witness on the performance front from Vijay Sethupathi, Gayathrie Shankar, and the others, including the screenplay and direction of Seenu Ramasamy, who has garnered a name in the industry for being a highly-talented filmmaker. 

Among the various big highlights in Maamanithan, the film also marks the first time 'Isaignani' Ilaiyaraaja and his son Yuvan Shankar Raja are collaborating together. Their songs have so far received a positive response, with fans now waiting to witness their prowess together in the background score, considering both have excelled in the department. Censored with a 'U' certificate by the CBFC, Maamanithan's ensemble cast includes the late K. P. A. C. Lalitha, Viswasam fame Anikha Surendran, Malayalam actor Shaji Chen among others in pivotal roles.
