Dulquer Salmaan's Comrade in America teaser: Amal Neerad's film off to a promising start
It was in February this year that the first look of Dulquer Salmaan's film with Amal Neerad was unveiled, and the title confirmed as Comrade in America — CIA.
Sharing the poster on his Facebook page, Dulquer had written at the time:
"At long last, here is the title for my first full length Amal Neerad film! Thank you Amal Etta for the opportunity and for letting me be a part of something so ambitious and grand. Hope you all love everything about the film."
The poster depicted Dulquer's character against the American flag, with the Communist sickle and hammer symbol in place of the usual stars. The title and poster both indicated that Communism will be a major part of CIA's narrative.
The Hindu reported that shooting on the project had started over a year ago and features locations in the US and Mexico.
Now, the teaser for CIA has been released, and it will have fans anticipating the full-length official trailer.
Dulquer shared the short, 32-second clip on his Facebook page with this message: "Here it is guys! We have given this film our everything. Cannot wait for you all to watch the final version. For now, here is a little teaser."
The teaser shows a student with Ali John (Dulquer) getting the better of a cop (Sujith Shankar) in a verbal exchange, and as he walks out of the police station, gathering up his lungi with an enviable swagger, Gopi Sundar's background score sets the perfect mood.
