The flashy trailer opens in the 70s to indicate Vishal and Suryah as evil however happy-go-lucky gangsters sporting jazzy outfits as they hop round and kill enemies in model. Things take a flip once we see a time journey machine invented by a scientist (Selvaraghavan) fall into the fingers of Mark (Vishal) in the 90s and we study that the latter is the son of the gangster Antony. We then see glimpses of a chaotic, violent motion entertainer that dabbles right into a style that hasn’t been explored in Tamil cinema: Gangster sci-fi drama.

Tamil pop-culture references, just like the ‘Panju Mittaai’ track from Ettupatti Rasa, are bonuses. But it does get very eerie when an AI-generated Silk Smitha makes an look.

Mark Antony additionally stars Sunil, Selvaraghavan, Ritu Varma, Abhinaya, Kingsley, and YG Mahendran amongst others. With music scored by GV Prakash Kumar, the movie has cinematography by Abinandhan Ramanujam and modifying by Vijay Velukutty.
