The trailer of Ajith’s upcoming Tamil action thriller Valimai, which has been produced by Boney Kapoor, was unveiled on Thursday. The film appears to be a high-octane action-thriller in which a no-nonsense cop will lock horns with a gang of thieves.
The trailer opens with a line about a series of murders that have taken place in Madurai and all of them have been planned and executed by someone sitting in a prison. Then, Ajith’s character named Arjun is introduced. He has nabbed a gang that the police have been searching for for 10 years in just 10 days.
Arjun gets transferred from Madurai to Chennai. His latest case is to apprehend a gang that pulls off crimes on race bikes. They have so far pulled off 6,000 heists, announces Huma Qureshi, who plays Ajith’s partner in the investigation.
The rest of the trailer is filled with high-octane action set pieces and scenes that indicate that the face-off between Ajith and Karthikeya, who plays the antagonist, will be one of the major highlights of the movie.
Directed by Vinoth, Valimai has been produced by Boney Kapoor, who has reunited with Ajith after Nerkonda Paarvai.
