Karthik Subbaraj who is famous for his 2012 low-budget thriller Pizza which was a commercial success is back with a new film titled Mercury. The movie’s production is almost complete and the makers are gearing up for release on April 13th as Summer Special. The promotions in Telugu and Tamil will begin very soon, the makers announced. The team say Mercury is a Silent Thriller and they promise to give an entirely new experience to the audience. Prabhu Deva is playing the central role in this film.
It will be a simultaneous release in Telugu and Tamil. It is said that Prabhu Deva is like a villain opposite the protagonists Sananth Reddy, Deepak Paramesh , Anish Padman, Shashank and Remya Nambeesan with music composed by Santhosh Narayanan. Janatha Garage fame Tirru has cranked the camera for this movie. Karthik Subbaraj has no commercial success after Pizza. His last film, Jigarthanda has failed at the box office and so the director will be trying to make amends for that failure with this new movie, Mercury. But then, it will be a challenge to release the movie in Summer which is already crammed with lot of star releases at least in Telugu film industry.
