Veteran actor SJ Suryah is all set to feature in his first web series and the trailer of the same was released on Tuesday in Chennai. The web series has been titled 'Vadhandhi - The Fable of Velonie'. While it is helmed by Andrew Louis, it is produced by Pushkar-Gayatri under the banner Wallwatcher Films. Previously, the duo has made critically acclaimed movie 'Suzhal - The Vortex'. 

In Vadhandhi: Fable of Veloni, SJ Suryah will play the lead role as a detective and is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video from December 2. On Tuesday, in Chennai, makers launched the trailer for the film. Pushkar-Gayatri said it was challenging to come up with a story that can be told throughout eight episodes that run for six or six-and-a-half hours.

Sharing the trailer, Amazon Prime Video took to Twitter and wrote, "Everyone has a story to tell...or a story to make up? Vadhandhi on Prime, new series, December 2." The two-minute new trailer focuses primarily on Velonie, a young girl who died under mysterious circumstances, and Suryah, who investigates her death. Following Karthi's Sardar, Laila will be an integral part of this new series. The story begins with the murder investigation of Velonie, a beautiful young girl, and is led by Vivek, a dedicated police officer. 

After her death, Velonie's reputation is at risk from the wild speculation that has arisen about her life, and Vivek must sort through a tangled web of lies, misinformation, and false leads to find the truth. Along with SJ Suryah and Laila, Nasser, Vivek Prasanna, Hareesh Peradi, Smruthi Venkat, and Kumaran Thangarajan will also play crucial roles. 

Pushkar-Gayatri, in their speech, remarked, "The tale of the 'Vadhandhi' series has piqued the interest of Prime Video company, and they continue to provide their support as the series is developed. The film's director, Andrew Louis, was a friend of mine in college at Loyola. The online series has opened up a whole new sphere of imagination for the Tamil industry". 

"Typically, screenplays for Tamil films are written for running times of two to two and a half hours. However, it's not easy to come up with a plot that spans eight episodes of six or six-and-a-half hours. We put in a lot of time and effort and developed the script for our last Suzhal web series. But director Andrew Lewis of the web series Vadhandhi, himself penned and directed all eight episodes", they added.

"Truth will happen. There is a verse in this series as 'Lies will fly. This speech, spoken naturally by the people of the Kanyakumari region, is apt for this series. It can be reffered to as a tagline," said actor S.J. Suryah. Simon K King composed the music, while Richard Kevin took charge of editing and Saravanan Ramasamy was in the charge of cinematography. Dhilip and  Dinesh Subbarayan were the stunt directors for this suspense drama.
