Tamil Cinema’s one of the most popular superstars Vijay is all set with his 63th film titled Bigil. Initially known as Thalapathy 63, the film is buzzing among fans since it was announced and now it has got the title. Directed by Atlee, the film is touted to be a romantic drama.
On June, 2019 Friday, Makers revealed the first look poster of Bigil that features Vijay is seen sporting a red t-shirt, with a design that is similar to that of the sports merchandise brand Umbro. The shirt has the number 5 on it — probably to denote the number of letters in the word Bigil — which is also his name in the film.
The title logo, coloured in sunrise red, is also embossed on an aerial view of a football court. Both the English and Tamil logos have a flying football incorporated in them. The first look also has the words ‘Happy Deepavali Nanba’ on the bottom left corner, thereby confirming the film’s release date as Diwali 2019.
The two characters are juxtaposed on an empty alleyway of a fish market. The background is laden with stalls which, while being devoid of people, appear to be full of that day’s catch. Along with a basket of crabs, there are different types of fish on display as well as wooden poles with packets of dried fish (karuvaadu) hanging from them.
While we already know that the film will be about women’s football, one can speculate that Vijay’s character would that be of an ex-footballer, who has grown older into a local don and due to a turn of events, is forced to coach a group of young female footballers.
