From the first look poster, Pulanaivu seems to be a mystery thriller. It also features Paruthiveeran director Ameer, who will reportedly play a pivotal part in the thriller.
According to Galatta, the film will be backed by Mathiyazhagan. The music will be composed by D Imman, while cinematography will be handled by Ballu. GK Prasanna will serve as editor on the project.
Arvind Swami made his debut in 1991 with Mani Ratnam's Thalapathi, and has subsequently starred in a bevy of successful movies, including Roja (1992), Bombay (1995), Minsaara Kanavu (1997) Thani Oruvan (2015), Bogan (2017) and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018).
Swami has also starred in a number of Hindi movies, such as Saat Rang Ke Sapne (1998), Raja Ko Rani Se Pyar Ho Gaya (2000) and Dear Dad (2016).
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.
In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.
