Very soon Tamil Nadu will be decked up to celebrate Pongal, the annual harvest festival. With the festivities, Kollywood has two big star releases set to make their way into theatres. Thalaiva Rajinikanth’s latest film Petta releases on 10th January and Thala Ajith is not far behind with his latest action flick. He will team up with director Siva in their fourth collaboration to take on the lead role in the action drama Viswasam.

Post the release of the film’s trailer on Sunday, fans have been reeling from the Madurai-accented Tamil and the mustache-twirling swag of Ajith Kumar. The trailer reveals him in the role of a local Theni don named Thooku Durai. As he is greeted by the townsfolk in his white shirt and veshti, he seems to be a well-respected local leader. What follows is tons of power-packed action and a possible nemesis played by Jagapathi Babu. The stunning Nayanthara also makes an appearance in the trailers as the female lead in the film. But what has fans most excited is the fact that Ajith might be taking on a double role in the film.

Bankrolled by Sathya Jyothi Films, the film also stars Thambi Ramaiah, Vivek, Yogi Babu, Robo Shankar, and Kovai Sarala. So, before you get ready to catch the first show of the film on Pongal 2019, check out the power-packed Viswasam trailer here:
