Teasers have now become the real acid tests, where the responsibility becomes so much intense to exhibit the film’s premise in shorter duration. Moreover, things turn to be slightly complex, where revealing anything more than the limits could be a spoiler. However, filmmaker Barath Neelakantan’s K13 teaser featuring Arulnithi and Shraddha Srinath in lead roles stands out to be a tremendous one. The 84 seconds teaser has stormed up the viewers with unlimited curiosities to know what this film is is all about. The relentless questions like is it is hostage drama, psychological thriller or fantasy one, etc – keeps resonating. Ask filmmaker Barath and he says, “It was literally more challenging to finalize the teaser as we had to go through many other versions too. Thanks to my team, especially editor Ruben for his creative approach. As said, anything more than this could turn out to be a suspense spoiler.” Regarding the genre and premise of the story, he says, “Yes, it’s a thriller and the rest is something audience should experience it themselves on big screens.”
In addition, the director Barath Neelakantan has taken a blind bet of revealing all the characters including filmmaker Adhik Ravichandran, who was recently reported of playing a crucial role in this movie. “We wanted this teaser not just to be a curtain raiser, but to be a slightest attempt to establish characters too. These days, audiences and film buffs are keen on knowing even the minimal roles even before watching the film. So we attempted something on this and are happy that people have now recognised the characters.”
Produced by SP Shankar and Santha Priya for SP Cinemas, K 13 also features Yogi Babu in an important role with Sam CS composing music, Aravinnd Singh handling cinematography and Ruben editing the shots.
