"Mariyaan" is an upcoming Tamil film starring actor Dhanush and Paravathi Menon in the lead roles. Directed by Bharat Bala and with music by AR Rahman, the film is a thriller that has been paritally-inspired by the true story of Indian immigrants who were taken hostage in Sudan. Dhanush is currently working on his Bollywood debut "Raanjhnaa" opposite Sonam Kapoor, and the music for that film has also been scored by AR Rahman.
On Thursday, a 28-second teaser was released, and that in itself received a lot of feedback, with fans voicing their excitement for the film. Check it out below:
Then, a promo for "Mariyaan" was released a few days ago, and it has already received over 80,000 views. The 38-second clip shows Dhanush underwater with a hunting spear. The brief preview we get of AR Rahman’s music combined with the excellent footage has got people talking, and anticipation is building for this film!
Dhanush revealed on Twitter that the sequence wasn’t shot in a swimming pool like many believed, saying "Guys it was shot in the ocean.. no swimming pool tricks".
It looks like the soundtrack will be released towards the end of April, but sources suggest that one single from the album will be released on April 9th, and another on April 16th.
