The first look of Shruti Hassan’s comeback, Laabam, was unveiled by lead actor and producer Vijay Sethupathi.  The poster has Vijay Sethupathi wielding the megaphone and addressing, in what appears to be, a crowd.

In the background  is a shoot-out scene in which the figure of a policeman is seen shooting the figure of a farmer with a plough in his hand while a woman with a child in her arms is seen crying. There’s also a girl raising her hands high up as if in a protest.


From this poster is it evident that Laabam will be a film with a strong social message.

SP Jananathan popular for helming films such as Iyarkai and Purampokku Engira Podhuvudamai is wielding the megaphone for Laabam. Vijay Sethupathi Productions, that has made films like Orange Mittai, Junga and Merku Thodarchi Malai, in association with 7CS Entertainments, is bankrolling the project.

The film has Vijay Sethupathi playing the lead role and he will be seen as a social activist. Shruti Haasan, who was last seen in the Tamil movie Singam 3, is making a comeback with Laabam and reports are that she plays a stage performer in it.

The others in pivotal roles include Kalaiyarasan, Sai Dhansika, Harish Uthaman, Sathish, Danie, and Jagapathi Babu. The technical crew of Laabam comprises Ramji as a cinematographer with D Imman roped in as the music composer and Anthony as the editor.
