'Netrikann': Nayanthara locks horns with a serial killer, watch trailer

'Netrikann' is set to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on August 13


The trailer of Nayanthara-starrer Tamil film Netrikann is out. Written and directed by Milind Rau of Aval fame, the film is bankrolled by Vignesh Shivn's banner Rowdy Pictures.

Nayanthara plays a visually challenged woman who tries to take on a serial killer. The trailer promises an edge-of-the-seat thriller with Nayanthara and the antagonist (essayed by Ajmal Ameer) confronting each other. Netrikann is set to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on August 13. The will also be available in Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.

Talking about the project, Milind said in a statement: “Tamil audiences love a good thriller, and I wanted to create a movie unlike any that the genre has seen in Kollywood.”

He added: “Netrikann is special because of the central character who is visually impaired and uses sheer intelligence and presence of mind to confront a deadly serial kidnapper. No one could have essayed the role better than Nayanthara who has brilliantly brought alive a character who can’t see, but is extremely quick-witted. High-octane action and drama, along with the unexpected twists in the storyline, makes Netrikann a must watch, especially for viewers who love a good whodunit packed with crime, thrill, and action.”

Nayanthara was last seen in the Malayalam movie Nizhal. She is currently shooting for Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe.
