Twitter criticizes Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2 trailer as a parody of Shankar’s films, labeling it disappointing.

The trailer for director Shankar’s highly anticipated film Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan, was released on June 25th, causing a stir among fans. Within just 15 hours of its release, the trailer had already accumulated a staggering 5 million views on Lyca Productions’ YouTube channel. Despite the initial excitement, social media was abuzz with criticisms of the trailer, with many calling it ‘mid’ and ‘disappointing’.

Some users took to Twitter to express their disappointment, particularly pointing out the ‘poor makeup’ in the trailer. Comparisons were also drawn to Shankar’s previous masterpiece, Indian (1996), with one user stating, “Indian 2 trailer is meh. Shankar seems to be outdated.” Another user noted, “INDIAN 2 movie trailer looks like the ‘I’ movie trailer”, highlighting their dissatisfaction.

The Indian 2 trailer showcases Kamal Haasan in various avatars, leading some to draw similarities to his previous film Dasavatharam, where he portrayed 10 different characters. One user even went as far as to describe the trailer as a “new age spoof of old Shankar movies”, while others felt that it lacked emotional depth.

Fans of the film also mentioned missing writer Sujatha, who played a crucial role in the success of Shankar’s earlier works such as Enthiran and Indian. Many felt that the dialogues in the Indian 2 trailer were lacking compared to Sujatha’s contributions, with fans expressing their longing for the late writer’s genius. One user commented, “Indian 1 >>Indian 2 bro trailer Missing sujatha sir dialogues.”

The concerns over the trailer have raised questions about the final product and how it will be received upon release. Some fans expressed worry over director Shankar’s recent track record, noting that he hasn’t had a major hit since Sujatha’s passing in 2008. Despite these reservations, Indian 2 is set to premiere on July 12th, boasting a star-studded cast including Siddharth, SJ Suryah, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, and more. With music by Anirudh and cinematography by Ravi Varman, the film is co-produced by Lyca Productions and Red Giant Movies.
