Sivakarthikeyan, Nayanthara and Fahadh Faasil-starrer Velaikkaran is all set to release on December 22 ahead of Christmas. The Mohan Raja-directed film has generated a lot of buzz with its teaser and audio, which have been received well by the audience.

The Tamil film has a lot of interesting aspects to attract viewers. We bring to you the five major reasons why you should watch Velaikkaran:


One look at the the track record of Sivakarthikeyan reveals the actor may not have opted to do a "mass" film like Rajinikanth or Vijay or highly-challenging roles like Vikram, but he has used a lot of wit while choosing scripts.

He wants to reach out to all sections of viewers and has tried to woo the family and mass audience with each film. The actor has been successful so far, and people have a reason to have high expectations from his latest venture Velaikkaran.

Mohan Raja

The days of the director being referred to as "Remake Raja" are gone thanks to his blockbuster Thani Oruvan. He is now being identified as Mohan Raja, a man who has the ability to impress viewers with straight subjects.

The success of his previous film is enough for viewers to have high hopes from Velaikkaran.

Nayanthara is the most-sought-after actress of South India. With her hard work and ability to pick the right scripts, the Kerala-based actress has earned the status of Lady Superstar.

She has paired up with Sivakarthikeyan for the first time and people are curious to see how her chemistry with him is in the film.

Fahadh Faasil

Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil enters Kollywood with Velaikkaran. He has played a role equivalent to Sivakarthikeyan. By Siva's own admission, Fahadh's role was more challenging than his role.

The Kerala-based actor's  presence has drawn the attention of the Malayali audience towards the Tamil flick.

The teaser and other promo videos have promised viewers wholesome entertainment. The movie deals with a serious problem that workers are facing, and the story is narrated with action, powered by punchful dialogues.
