Mercury is an upcoming thriller film, directed by Karthik Subbaraj and starring Prabhu Deva as the antagonist. Sounds like just another movie when we put it that way. But, this movie is a niche away from others.
Following its announcement, it was revealed that Mercury will be a silent film, meaning the movie will have no dialogues.
The title and the first look of the movie have left audience intrigued and now, the director announced that the teaser will be released by four South Indian actors.
In his tweet, Karthik Subbaraj has said- “Truly crossing language barriers
#Mercury teaser is being released by 4 stalwarts across industries. Because Silence is a Universal Language. Thanks @dhanushkraja, @NivinOfficial, @RanaDaggubati & @rakshitshetty Releasing today @ 4pm! @PDdancing @PenMovies @StonebenchFilms (sic.)”
Mercury’s teaser renders audience speechless
The much-awaited teaser of the movie is finally out and it has left us speechless, should we say. In a style fitting of Karthik Subbaraj, the teaser throws light on the film’s genre. The movie seems to deal with mercury poisoning and Prabhu Deva looks menacing as the villain. He moves around eerily and plays his part convincingly. Towards the end, the teaser cheekily announces that Mercury will be released in all languages.
The teaser was released by four major South Indian actors and here’s what they had to say about it.
Dhanush’s tweet read- “Very happy to release the teaser of Karthik Subbaraj’s
#Mercury – A Silent Thriller starring ace dancer-actor-director Prabhudeva. A Silent Film after so many years! Congratulations to the whole team. (sic.)”
Rana Daggubati also released the teaser and said- “Filmmaker
@karthiksubbaraj ’s #Mercury starring India’s Michael Jackson @PDdancing is a Silent Thriller that will cross all boundaries and barriers. Here is the teaser of the No-Language Film. Good luck and congratulations on pushing the boundaries (sic.)”
Nivin Pauly also seems excited about the movie- “Silence is truly the most powerful form of expression. Can’t wait to watch
@PDdancing ’s performance in @karthiksubbaraj ’s #Mercury. (sic.)”
Actor Rakshit Shetty said “Proud to present the teaser of
@karthiksubbaraj ’s #Mercury starring @PDdancing in an all-new avatar. This Silent Thriller is all set to go beyond boundaries and capture the hearts of cinema lovers across the globe! All the best to the team (sic.)”
This is one movie that we cannot wait to experience.
