Rekka is an upcoming Tamil film written and directed by Rathina Shiva and produced by B Ganesh who co-produced Orange Mittai under the Common Man Productions banner. The film features Vijay Sethupathi and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles, while Harish Uthaman, Sathish and KS Ravikumar appears in the supporting role.
Just as the week was progressing, we were wondering where Vijay Sethupathi was since he almost always in the news every week. And right on cue, here he is with another first look of his new movie. This film is titled as Rekka and the stunning first look is out now. It shows the Makkal Selvan in a rugged avatar of a traveller. He is sporting a denim shirt with a thick beard and moustache, a look that he generally carries in almost all of his movies.
But other than that, the first look doesn’t have much to convey, other than dropping a few subtle hints as to what the film will be about. The backdrop behind Vijay Sethupathi is filled with paper cuttings, street names, house numbers and mile markers. All these things hint that travel might play a major theme in Rekka.
But the poster blows all these ideas out of the water. It shows Vijay Sethupathi and Lakshmi Menon in a public setting with mikes surrounding them as they smile pose for the cameras. After watching contrasting posters, we don’t know what to make of the film.
The words Rekka is emblazoned in bright red along with the words, shoot starts today on top. Before you get surprised, it is common for the versatile actor to release first looks on the first day of shooting itself. He followed a similar pattern for both Dharma Durai and Aandavan Kattalai.
