Dhanush's role in the movie Mariyaan directed by Bharat Bala, is that of a fisherman it seems. This movie would portray the day to day lives of fishermen in an authentic way, it is expected. This is a different role for the lanky actor who is known to choose different roles in film after film.
Mariyaan has music by A.R.Rahman and Parvathi Menon would be Dhanush's pair in this one. She had done a marvelous job in Poo and more of the same can be expected from her. Dhanush on the other hand is fresh from the accolades he earned for roles in Mayakkam Enna and 3.
Currently he is busy with Raanjhnaa, where he is playing the role of a Banarasi Brahmin boy.
