Spyder starring Super Star Mahesh Babu and Rakul Preet will be hitting the big screens on September 27th, 207 worldwide and will mark Mahesh’s debut in Tamil cinema. Directed by A.R.Murugadoss, Spyder will be the biggest release in Mahesh Babu’s career and will have him play a stylish looking intelligence officer. Director-turned-actor SJ Suryah will be playing the antagonist in Spyder, which is one of the interesting aspects of the film. Director Murugadoss says that the film will be a unique concept which will be unseen before in South India cinema.
“Normally, we are used to seeing the hero taking on a powerful villain, someone like a Prakash Raj and a number of goons and overcoming them. It’s a different game altogether in Spyder. It’s a sort of cat-and-mouse game, a hide-and-seek from the villain’s side. He is ubiquitous and omnipotent yet unseen. So, the hero is basically fighting an unseen enemy. This is something new,” a report in TOI quoted director A.R.Murugadoss.
Speaking about why chose SJ Suryah for the role of villain in Spyder, A.R.Murugadoss adds, “When I cast SJ Suryah as the villain, I had at the back of my mind, the Terminator movie in which Arnold Schwarzenegger is the muscled guy but he is constantly being chased by a person far lesser to him in build and it’s entirely believable. So, that’s the kind of credibility I wanted to bring to the characterisation of Suryah, something unique to our audiences.”
The music and background score of Spyder is rendered by Harris Jayaraj which adds more value to the film.
