A still from "Manithan."Sony Music South/Twitter 

The trailer of upcoming Tamil movie "Manithan" was released Thursday, April 7. The movie has been directed by I Ahmed and it is the remake of Hindi hit film "Jolly LLB."

It is an interesting clip that has intense background score by Santhosh Narayanan. The trailer gives a complete outline of the story and introduces us to all the major characters in "Manithan." Udhayanidhi Stalin looks completely different in the video and it is a welcome change for the actor from his routine comedy films.

Hansika Motwani and Prakash Raj have good presence in the trailer, in which they appear impressive.

The original version starred Arshad Warsi, Amrita Rao and Boman Irani in the lead roles and in "Manithan," Udhayanidhi Stalin, Hansika Motwani and Prakash Raj are stepping into their shoes, respectively.

The story of "Manithan" is about the clash between a sincere lawyer and a senior advocate. How the courageous man fights for justice by winning a case against the powerful man forms the crux of the story.

Meanwhile, many celebrities have taken to Twitter to appreciate the trailer of "Manithan." Here, we bring to you their comments on the video:
