Coolie Teaser: Witness Rajinikanth’s Splendor in Thalaivar 171

Lokesh Kanagaraj recently released the teaser for Rajinikanth’s highly anticipated film, Thalaivar 171, which also unveiled the movie’s official title – Coolie. The teaser pays tribute to Rajinikanth’s iconic roles as a coolie in films like Uzhaipaali (1993), Mannan (1992), and Mullum Malarum (1978). Fans praised Lokesh Kanagaraj’s ability to incorporate references to the superstar’s illustrious career. Adding to the excitement, the teaser features an Easter egg: Rajinikanth singing Siva Sambo from Ninaithale Inikkum (1979), a song that embodies a hedonistic lifestyle reminiscent of his character in the film.

For those unfamiliar with Lokesh Kanagaraj’s previous announcements, Coolie stands apart from his cinematic universe, which includes Vikram, Kaithi, and Leo. Therefore, Coolie will be the third standalone movie in his filmography, following the success of Maanagaram and Master. Last month, Lokesh Kanagaraj unveiled the first-look poster of Coolie. The poster showcases a monochromatic image of Rajinikanth wearing a denim shirt. He is bound by a chain of wristwatches, which stand out in color against the grayscale backdrop, with a prominent clock in the background. The presence of watches has sparked speculation, hinting at a potential time-travel narrative in the movie. Furthermore, the inclusion of watches in Coolie has ignited fan theories suggesting a possible connection to Suriya’s Rolex character.

Lokesh Kanagaraj shared the poster on X (formerly known as Twitter) and announced that the film’s title would be revealed on April 22 with the hashtag #Thalaivar171TitleReveal.

While the remaining cast members have not been disclosed yet, it has been confirmed that Anirudh Ravichander will once again collaborate with Rajinikanth for the project. Additionally, renowned action choreographers Anbu-Arivu are on board to bring their expertise to the film. Coolie is being produced by Sun Pictures, adding to the anticipation surrounding this exciting collaboration between Lokesh Kanagaraj, Rajinikanth, and the talented team involved in the project.
