Last Updated: Thu, May 05, 2016 09:59 hrs

Suriya’s ambitious sci-fi entertainer ‘24’ is all set to release in record 2150 screens worldwide on May 6th. lists out five reasons to watch the film on big screen…

A unique attempt
‘24’ is definitely going to be a unique attempt in Tamil cinema. Though we had Indru Netru Naalai—a  time travel film, ‘24’ will get better reach and with a leading actor like Suriya , this film will surely inspire filmmakers to attempt out of the box concepts. 

Hopefully, a big success for ‘24’ will also encourage producers to spend their money on ambitious projects.

Suriya in triple role
For the first time in his career, Suriya plays triple role in ‘24’. After playing dual role in films like Vel, Perazhagan, 7aam Arivu and Maattrraan, Suriya was very much sceptical in playing multiple roles but after listening to the script of ‘24’, he was excited to portray the villainy Athreya character and he himself has revealed to us in an earlier interaction.

Other than Athreya, the film also has Suriya as an innocent scientist Sethuraman and in the present portions, he plays a watch mechanic Mani.

Vikram Kumar’s intelligent filmmaking
Vikram Kumar’s films always have interesting concepts and tight screenplay testing the intelligence of the audiences. His 13B revived the horror genre in Tamil cinema, his last film Manam was a blockbuster in Tollywood, where the director has given a fresh feel to the age old reincarnation angle.

In our previous interaction, Vikram has said that the script of ‘24’ was with him for more than six years and it is his dream project.

AR Rahman’s big thumbs up
AR Rahman is pretty much excited about ‘24’ as he feels that the film is an ambitious attempt and has given a completely different music comparing to his earlier films.

Sources say that AR Rahman’s background score is going to be a big strength for the film and already the song ‘Mei Nigara’ is turning out to be a chartbuster.

Two beautiful divas
‘24’ has beautiful divas—Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menon, who are the current heart throbs for youngsters in both Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh as they have  crazy fan following in both the states.

Although the film doesn’t have combination scene between Samantha and Nithya ,sources say that are not playing typical glam dolls and have important scope in the flow of the screenplay.
