The fans love the action and dialogues too. In the film Suriya plays the role of a cop who has to save the Prime Minister played by Mohanlal. There is also a reference to biological warfare. It seems MS Prabhu has done a great job with the cinematography.
This is Suriya’s third film with KV Anand. Kaappaan also stars Mohanlal, Arya, Boman Irani, Samuthirakani and others. It is bankrolled by Lyca Productions. It is important for Suriya as his last two films have fared badly at the box office. KV Anand told First post, “The trailer was meant for the theatre and targeted the tier 2 and 3 audiences. When you spend so much money on a film it should show on the big screen. I believe in fast-paced entertainers that tell a story and at the same time have sufficient emotions, intercut with action scenes and songs. Yes my movies always target the mass audiences and I do not want to be known as a class director and be limited to the multiplexes.” The budget is around Rs 80 crore.
