Actor Vijay Sethupathi has released the motion poster of Dr. Pragabhal’s debut film Muddy on his social media handles. The film is touted to be India’s first off-Road mud race movie and promises to offer the audiences a never-seen-before experience. Bankrolled by Prema Krishnadas under the banner of PK7 Creations, the upcoming action flick revolves around mud racing, a form of off-road motorsport. While sharing the first look of the film on his Facebook page, Vijay wrote, “Happy to share the official motion poster of MUDDY, India’s first Mud Race Movie #muddymovie.”
Dr. Pragabhal has done extensive research that went on for five years, essaying a storyline on the rivalry between different teams. In a statement, he said, “I trained the main actors in off-road racing, we didn’t use any dupes. I wanted guys who were adventurous and willing to invest the necessary time and energy for the film. The greatest challenge before me was introducing a sport like mud racing to the viewers without losing its thrill and punch.”
“The concept of mud racing being new to the Indian cinema and it’s audiences, the film didn’t have any references for the making which also means production wasn’t a cakewalk. Mud racing and stunts in the mud were filmed realistically. This will be a new experience to the viewers, he added.
Notably, no dupes or stunt artists were used to execute adventurous stunts in the film. The teaser of the film will be out on 26 February 2021. Music has been given by Ravi Basrur and cinematography of the film is done by Hollywood fame K G Ratheesh. Talking about the starcast of the upcoming movie, actors Yuvan, Ridhaan Krishna, Anusha Suresh and Amit Sivadas Nair will be seen in the lead roles. Muddy will also feature Harish Peradi, I M Vijayan and Renji Panicker in pivotal roles.
