On the occasion of Mahesh Babu’s 41st birthday, the teaser of his highly anticipated upcoming spy thriller Spyder was released on Wednesday. Going by the visuals, we can be assured that we are in a great clash between good and evil. The good, needless to say is Mahesh Babu, and he looks majestic as ever in the teaser. The evil will be actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah who sends chills down our spine with his maniacal avatar. His face-off with Mahesh Babu will end in fireworks in theatres and it’s going to be an epic clash.
The teaser also assures that this is an action-packed film high on explosions and catastrophe. Tipped to be a thriller based on bio-terrorism, the film has been directed by AR Murugadoss, best known for blockbusters such as Kaththi and Thuppakki. In the film, Mahesh plays an Intelligence Bureau officer and he is said to have performed most of the stunts on his own.
The problem is, Spyder misses that Murugadoss’s slick touch and comes across as loud commercial flick with many over the top emotions. It can be good eventually as a whole, but the teaser doesn’t give bright hopes. The dialogues are weak and don’t carry the punch, in fact, it does the opposite. There is a scope for grand action and some visuals point towards that without any doubt. Also, one can understand why the movie was postponed, looking at those shots. For now, the teaser is disappointing and lessens the expectations. Despite saying this, it is still an AR Murugadoss film and there is hope due to it.
Check out the trailer below. Spyder stars Mahesh Babu, Rakul Preet Singh in the lead. SJ Suryah plays the antagonist, and one can’t miss him in the teaser. Spyder releases worldwide on September 27.
