It is reported that Rekka, a film under progress which brings together the much-in-demand Vijay Sethupathi and the lanky Lakshmi Menon together for the first time on screen, might as well turn out to be Vijay Sethupathi’s first full-fledged action film!
The ‘teaser’ of the film was released yesterday and the sequences one gets to see makes it amply clear that Vijay Sethupathi has tried to deviate from his often-seen image of a happy-go-lucky guy and has made a serious attempt as an ‘action hero’.
Vijay Sethupathi played a tough cop in Sethupathi which released early this year and did reasonably well at the box-office; he played a wannabe ruffian in last year’s super-duper hit film Naanum Rowdydhaan. In Rekka, which is directed by Rathina Siva, he dazzles in an action-packed performance.
Said to have Madurai as the backdrop of the film’s script, Sethupathi’s fans only hope that Rekka becomes as successful as Vijay Sethupathi’s earlier films in recent times!
