The trailer shows Dhanush hiding in the fields and attacking his enemies with a sickle. Prakash Raj also makes an appearance in the clip.
By the end of the trailer, the older Dhanush can be seen explaining the importance and power of education, which is something that cannot be snatched by force. The clip ends with the young Dhanush covered in blood after hacking his opponent.

Dhanush and Vetrimaaran have previously worked together on Vada Chennai (2018), Pollathavan (2007) and Aadukalam (2011). They have jointly produced the 2011 comedy Kaaka Muttai and 2015's Visaranai.
The film is based on Sahitya Akademi-winning writer Poomani's book Vekkai. Malayalam actor Manju Warrier, who is the female lead, will be seen in her Tamil feature debut. Balaji Sakthivel, Prakash Raj, Pasupathy, Subramania Siva, Yogi Babu and Aadukalam Naren will be seen in supporting roles.
Poomani's Vekkai takes place over a span of a week, where a father and son flee from their village after the son murders a powerful landlord. Vetrimaaran, in an interview with The Hindu, said that he is not glorifying the violent incident in the film but shows how the family copes following the incident. He had also said, "The film cannot fulfil the expectations of those who have read the novel. But it will offer a different experience to those who have not read it."
Asuran's music is composed by GV Prakash Kumar and Velraj is the cinematographer. The film is bankrolled by Kalaipuli S Thanu, who has also produced Dhanush's VIP 2, writes The News Minute.

Nenjam Marappadhillai is a shallow, convenient sort of film, that can only excite those who are already entranced by the Selvaraghavan universe. For the rest of us, it is an exhausting mess.
