The trailer of Vijay Sethupathi’s Tamil film, Laabam, has been released. Directed by SP Jananathan, Laabam has Sethupathi playing the role of a social activist who bats for agriculture and is on the verge of a revolution.
The trailer delves into the grim reality of framers in the state and, also talks about how corporate and industrial sectors plunders the resources for their own benefits. Sethupathi’s character brings puts up a fight for the farmers and encourages them to fight for their hard-earned profits. However, while his actions cause a stir with the economy, they also directly affect the interest of the powerful (one essayed by Jagapathi Babu), who would rather put a halt on this revolution.
