The trailor of Shankar’s Anniyan has definitely created a buzz among film folks. A leading director who saw the trailor says: “I have a sneaky feeling that basic plot of the film is taken from Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde concept”.

During day time Vikram is a soft spoken Brahmin, a simpleton spotting a kudumi and wearing a veshti. During nights he turns into a long haired fierce monster-like mean fighting-machine who fights the baddies and scum’s of the society.

Says a scriptwriter” I think it is another typical vigilante fantasy from Shankar that is well-packaged to entertain”. The story of Anniyan is the biggest riddle in the industry with the trade and public continuing with their guessing game.
