Watch the trailer here:
Directed by Deepak Sundarrajan, the son of veteran director-actor Sundarrajan, Annabelle Sethupathi is expected to be a horror-comedy.
The trailer begins against the backdrop of a setting from 1948 and a voiceover that credits their ruler, King Veera Sethupathi’s creativity and wisdom for the beauty of their castle, followed by Vijay Sethupathi appearing in a mock swordfight where he comes out victorious. The voiceover then explains that the king had appointed eight architects to design eight segments of the castle individually.
The voiceover adds that King Veera Sethupathi had carefully planned and constructed the castle for his fiancé. Here, we see Taapsee Pannu making her entry as an equally talented and fierce swordfighter.
However, like all good things, the king’s romance with his wife too appears to come to an end after another wealthy man sets his eyes on the intricately-built castle and aims to acquire it.
Fast forward to 2021, Taapsee enters the picture again as the lead character who joins hands with the existing ghosts in the castle to chase away the antagonists who took over the castle.
The film will have Jagapathi Babu, Yogi Babu, Radikaa Sarathkumar, Rajendra Prasad, and Vennela Kishore playing prominent roles.
Produced by Sudhan Sundaram and G Jayaram under the banner of Passion Studios, Annabelle Sethupathi will be released in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi. The film will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on September 17.
