The trailer of director Ajay Gyanmuthu’s eagerly awaited action thriller ‘Cobra’, starring Chiyaan Vikram in the lead role, was released amidst much fanfare at the city’s VR Mall.
The action entertainer’s trailer dispels the fact that Vikram plays a genius who breathes every single second of his life and who can find mathematical solutions to every problem.
Vikram plays the titular character of a cobra in the film and his real name, if anyone knows from the trailer, is ‘Maithi’, a maths teacher.
The trailer reveals that Cobra has two skills apart from his mathematical skills. One, he is a master of disguise, and second, he is an extraordinary fighter.
Vikram is seen playing at least seven different get-ups in this film including a Chinese old man and a rock band musician.
Another important aspect of the film is that cricketer Irfan Pathan, who is making his debut as an actor in Tamil cinema with this film, plays an investigating officer on the heels of ‘Cobra’.
The trailer has raised the expectations from the film. It has garnered 6.1 million views on YouTube in less than 15 hours since its release.
