New Delhi: The trailer of Prime Video’s upcoming Tamil web series ‘Vadhandhi – The Fable of Velonie’ was unveiled on Tuesday. Marking the streaming debut of S.J. Suryah, the series is produced by ‘Vikram Vedha5’-fame filmmaker duo Pushkar and Gayatri and is created by Andrew Louis.
The trailer gives us a sneak peek into the journey of a determined cop Vivek (played by S.J. Suryah) who finds himself fixated on solving the murder of an 18-year-old Velonie. Untangling a web of lies and deceit, the show is riddled with ‘rumours’ as the name Vadhandhi suggests, examining the frailty of human relationships and perceptions. A trail of questions follow- Will Vivek be able to solve the case? Will he be able to find the real perpetrator of the heinous crime? Will the obsession cost him his job as well as his personal life and family? This path-breaking crime thriller with cliffhangers at every turn will leave the audience captivated.
S.J. Suryah, who makes his streaming debut through the series said, “I was delighted when I was approached by Pushkar and Gayatri for Vadhandhi. The moment my close friend and director Andrew narrated the script to me, I knew I had to jump on board. I have played a cop earlier in my career, but my character Vivek is exceptional. The way this case and story consume him, I find myself fascinated and at the same time, anxious for him. Besides the twists, turns and thrills of this whodunnit, the story is thought-provoking and will connect with viewers on an emotional level. The uniquely thrilling vibe brought in by Andrew plays as much of a role in the series as the locales and the music does. The thriller is packed with some very talented actors and they bring their absolute best to the table. I couldn’t think of a better streaming debut and I am thrilled for the worldwide premiere of the series this December on Prime Video.”
‘Vadhandhi’ also marks the OTT debut of Laila, who recently returned to acting with the Tamil action-thriller ‘Sardar’. “I am thrilled to make my digital debut on Prime Video’s upcoming Tamil Amazon Original series ‘Vadhandhi – The Fable of Velonie’. My character is that of a strong yet vulnerable woman who lives through tough times, trying to always protect her young daughter,” Laila said.
The eight-episode Tamil crime thriller will premiere in India, and 240 countries and territories, starting 2nd December in Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
