Senapathy Returns With More Rampage In ‘Indian 2’; Look At The Iconic Benchmark Set 28 Years Ago As ‘Indian’!

As Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan's iconic irreplacable character finally returns onscreen with extra vigilante action titled 'Indian 2', let's look at unbeatable prequel 'Indian' while talking about upcoming blockbuster sequel.

Tamil movie ‘Indian 2’ is one of the esteemed freedom fighter films ever made in the history of Indian cinema. The character named Veerasekaran Senapathy popularly tagged as ‘Indian’ for his vigilante actions were so ferocious against corruption that he even killed his own son named Chandrabose (Haasan’s double role as son). That sounds frightening? Yes, not a single corrupted human will be spared from this fierce man.

For the unknown, an original Tamil movie ‘Indian’ was released almost three decades ago and imagine its rage set back in 1996 was so horrifying that the film is now back in 2024 with its sequel. After highly-anticipation, ‘Indian 2’ trailer was finally released yesterday and set to raise fear among the audience all over again with overloaded vigilante moments. Releasing on 12th July 2024.

‘Indian’ movie turned out to be iconic through it’s unmissable narrative that talks about the most cruel side of the society. Powerful filmmaker S Shankar’s mind was triggered to see illegal stuff happening in the society and country which went on him to direct a mega film that roared like a lion. Despite leaving such an unmatchable impact he was upset seeing bribes still happening around him and that’s how he decided to bring back this influential film with more power and more rampage.

Kamal Haasan aka Ulaganayagan who is known for his out-of-the-box performances and opting versatile looks which take hours to design his appearances, Senapathy was one such character. Director Shankar initially approached different Telugu superstars like Rajashekar, Nagarjuna, Venkatesh with a different title but that never happened. That’s how destiny falls in place!

Haasan went on to earn a tag of pan-Indian star, pan-global star way before even these tags became popular. If not this actor then we couldn’t have imagined any other artist pulling this avatar. Not just old man’s part he equally nailed the son’s character, the one whose against all wrong-doings and the other enjoys doing misdeeds. His hardwork and dedication for his craft knows no bounds, which has grown over the period of time. After 28 years now, 69-year-old Kamal Haasan sat hours to get-in elderly man look even today. Shooting more than 10-12 hours a day he could barely eat something and drink water only with straw due to protect the makeup.

Talking about the music and background score, earlier for part one music maestro AR Rahman designed the extravaganza music and presently in ‘Indian 2’, the current sensational rockstar Anirudh Ravichander has taken over the lead and we already saw his phenomenal work on the track of ‘Comeback Indian’ which powerfully raises patriotism among audience with true spirit. Delievering complete justice to the King of music Rahman’s previous work done.

1996 ‘Indian’ film that left us in hope of Senapathy returning back onscreens, the impact to be remembered for generations, it’s finally happening! The prequel concluded on note where he escaped from the car that caught fire, while sequel will witness his vigorous comeback. Also starring the versatile Siddharth who seems to be a disciple of Indian, including Rakul Preet Singh, Brahmanandam, Gulshan Grover, Samuthirakani and many others. Releasing in three languages – Tamil, Telugu and in Hindi.

Hence, do not forget to go back to watch ‘Indian’ before part 2 sets the screens on ablaze.
