‘Bigil’ Trailer: Vijay Goes From Rowdy to Champion to Coach
The trailer of Bigil, starring ‘Ilayathalapathy’ Vijay and Nayanthara, and written/directed by Atlee has dropped on YT. It’s crossed 500k views within the first hour and now has Vijay fans hoping it’ll break Petta and Viswasam’s trailer records.
The movie has Vijay sporting three different looks and appears to ride the sports genre bandwagon to box office glory. Like all Tamil masala film trailers, this one has some of the best scenes from the film, in no particular sequence. But it’s quite enjoyable, thanks also to A R Rahman’s music.

In the trailer, Vijay is seen playing a soccer champion or “pride of our nation” as Jackie Shroff’s character calls him. Later, he goes on to become a tough coach to a girls soccer team. Meanwhile, there’s also a rowdy Vijay who ages into a gangster lord. The trailer manages to intrigue while revealing little plot details as to how these characters intersect.
This is the third collaboration between Vijay and Atlee after the success of Theri in 2016 and Mersal in 2017. Those films also had Vijay playing multiple characters.
Bigil will release simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu on Diwali.
