After so long years of silent film in Indian cinema, the young talented director Karthik Subbaraj is releasing the silent thriller Mercury featuring Prabhudeva in leads. The movie has no dialogues and only music and actions of the casts will speak to audience.
Kamal Haasan starred Singeetam Srinvasa Roa’s first full length silent drama Pushpaka Vimanam (Kannada) / Pesum Padam (Tamil) which was box-office hit and also much acclaimed movie. It was a romantic drama and now Karthik’s silent film is a thriller genre.
The teaser of the Mercury had been released by Dhanush, Rana Daggubati, and Nivin Pauly few minutes ago. The teaser looks promising with spine chilling moment.

Rana stated "Mercury starring India’s Michael Jackson Prabhudeva is a Silent Thriller that will cross all boundaries and barriers."
Nivin Pauly posted "Silence is truly the most powerful form of expression. Can’t wait to watch Prabhudeva’s performance in Karthik Subbaraj’s Mercury."
The film will be having Sananth, Indhuja, Deepak Paramesh, Shashank Purushotham, Anish Padmanabhan in key roles. Karthik Subbaraj had written the screenplay, Thirunavukkarasu handled camera, Vivek Harshan edited it, and Santhosh Narayanan scored the music.
