Titled Nerkonda Paarvai, the H Vinoth directorial is the official remake of Amitabh Bachchans courtroom drama Pink, which released in 2016 and had Tappsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang in pivotal roles.
In Nerkonda Paarvai, Ajith will portray the role of an aged lawyer, the part played by Amitabh in the original film. National award winning actress Vidya Balan is also making her Tamil debut with the courtroom drama. However, she does not appear in the two-minute-long trailer.
The film will follow the story of Ajiths character, who will not settle for anything less than justice for three women who are framed on the charges of attempted murder, while they were facing the threat of sexual harassment. Ajith looks intense in his look and he just shines in the scenes inside the court. It remains to be seen how his role plays out in the film.
One thing peculiar about Nerkonda Paarvai trailer is that towards the end, Ajith is seen beating down a goon with a rod in style. This aspect of the lawyers character was missing in Pink, where Amitabh returns to fight the womens case and does not take the law into his own hands. Seems like Ajith likes to clean a little scum of the Earth himself too.
