The makers of the film dropped a one-minute long teaser on July 28, 2022 and it has already set a right tone by promising a socially oriented film that will be a hard-hitting one.
The teaser stars Dhanush as a junior teacher, who goes against an education mafia that makes business out of education. The description of the teaser reads, “Education is more than about books, marks and results”.
The teaser promised a social drama that shines light on very concerning issues that are affecting our education system and Dhanush’s character is the medium to do so. It tells us how education should be provided to all, whether a rich or a poor person.
Education is more than about books, marks and results ✨📕
