The trailer of Vijay's Bigil has amassed a record number of hits on YouTube. In less than 24 hours, it has garnered close to 15 million hits on the video-sharing site.
It gives an outline of the story without revealing much about the storyline. Presumably, Vijay plays dual roles of a father and son in the film, which has Nayanthara in the female lead. There are ample of hints at Thalapathy's elder role being set in 70-80s. The son's journey is expected to be narrated in length: from his younger days as a footballer till he turns the don-turned-football coach of a woman team.
The story seems to be revolving around how a gangster's son and footballer, who treads on his father's path before taking up the assignment of a coach of a women football team. Atlee Kumar seems to have hidden the best part to surprise the viewers in theatres upon the film's release.
The visuals, Vijay's electrifying screen presence in multiple avatars and AR Rahman's music combined with necessary commercial ingredients have made it a top quality trailer which has won positive reviews from celebrities from all across the country.
