The trailer of the much-awaited film ‘Spyder’ released on September 15 and Mahesh Babu is all set to make an impression in his debut Tamil film. The trailer’s look and feel matches the genre. AR Murugadoss’ film is a spy thriller and we are shown all that would typically go in an Indian spy thriller, a glass and steel Intelligence Bureau office, a super fit and sharp cop, a bubbly love interest, some touching family moments prominently featuring a worried mother, a glimpse of an antagonist who is more psychotic than overtly villainous, some song and dance sequences, stylishly choreographed punches and fights and a high thrill quotient.
Mahesh Babu plays the role of Siva. The filmmakers don’t seem to be ready to release the look of their antagonist SJ Suryah, however, he wins us over with just one of his dialogues. It is delivered with a punch and does hit you at the right spot.
On the other hand, Mahesh Babu is described as a shy boy by his mother. He is not ready to change the world and all he wants to do is help people. And that’s why, he has found a software, which would help his team to pinpoint who would need help specifically by highlighting cases with the help of words like help used on phones. He looks restrained in his acting, which is a welcome relief. Rakul Preet has little to do though there will be some moments given to romance. This is Mahesh Babu’s first Tamil film and he has dubbed in the language himself. Since the trailer’s launch (both the versions were released early Friday morning) Twitter is abuzz with praise for Mahesh’s flawless Tamil rendition. The actor is said to be very comfortable in the language but it never hurts to get it better.
The movie is bankrolled by Lyca Productions and also stars Bharath and RJ Balaji among others. The music for the film is composed by Harris Jayaraj, and a grand music launch event was recently organized in Chennai. The film is slated to release on September 27.
