The trailer of Vishwaroopam 2 was launched in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu on Monday. The sequel to the 2013 hit film Vishwaroopam will see Kamal make a comeback as RAW agent Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri. But we don't get to see anything really new in the trailer. The film might be named Vishwaroopam 2 but it is said to be the prequel to the 2013 film in terms of story. We get a few errant lines in between the stunts, like the suggestive, "Endha madham sarndhu vena irukalam, aana desa dhrogi a than iruka kudathu nu." We also get a remixed version of the Vishwaroopam theme song "Yar endru therigiratha" which has now become "Nyabagam varugiratha". In a crisp throwback to Vishwaroopam, a voiceover reminds us that Indian intelligence officers were integral in defusing a dirty bomb. That’s about it. Packed with action sequences, the sneak peek doesn’t reveal much about the crux of the film.
Kamal Haasan also confidently added that Vishwaroopam 2 will not face the controversies it’s predecessor did. “The controversy that had cropped up in the first part was politics. It was proved right then. It won’t happen now and if it does, I am fully prepared to tackle it as a politician.” He observed that he won’t mix politics and films and that Vishwaroopam 2 will stay true to its story.
