Prime Video, presented an exclusive screening for its upcoming Tamil crime thriller, Vadhandhi – The Fable of Velonie, at the ongoing 53rd edition of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
The first-look showcase opened to a packed house and the series was appreciated for its visual treatment, gripping plot, and powerful performances.
Much like its title Vadhandhi, which means rumors, the show takes you into the world of young and beautiful Velonie, played by debutante, Sanjana, whose story is riddled with rumors. A troubled but determined cop, played by S.J. Suryah finds himself caught in the web of lies but is hell-bent on finding the truth.
The screening was preceded by an interaction with Aparna Purohit, Head of Originals, Prime Video, India, and the cast and creators of the series – Creative Producers Pushkar and Gayatri; writer, director, and creator Andrew Louis; lead actor SJ Suryah and debutante actor Sanjana, who plays the titular role in the series.
They shared with the audience interesting anecdotes about the making of the series, and the reach of local content worldwide.
Pushkar and Gayatri, Creative Producers of the series, said, “IFFI is one of the most significant film festivals in Asia, and it is very exciting for us to be showcasing our next project, Vadhandhi at the festival, just a few days before its worldwide premiere on Prime Video. A platform such as IFFI, helps us take this gripping crime drama to a wider audience. Vadhandhi – The Fable of Velonie is our second collaboration with Prime Video, and we firmly believe that we have found a great partner in them as we share the vision of creating content, not just for the Indian audience, but for viewers worldwide”
Sharing more about Vadhandhi – The Fable of Velonie, the writer, director, and creator of the series Andrew Louis said, “I am elated to present my work to such a wide audience through Prime Video and look forward to its worldwide premiere on 2nd December. Besides the twists, turns, and thrills of this whodunnit crime thriller, Vadhandhi is thought-provoking and will connect with viewers on an emotional level. To be able to give this eminent audience at IFFI a first look at this story and to witness their reactions is even more exciting for me. Being here today is truly an honor.”
