What's in the title announcement video?

In the video, a lone figure stands in the middle of a barren, misty land. He's covered himself with a rustic cloak. He faces five men who are standing at a distance, holding various weapons, ready to charge at him. The camera then reveals Kamal's face, with his recent look of a dense moustache and beard.

As the men approach him, he lets go of the cloak, revealing long locks, as he gears up to fight in a martial arts position. He then goes on to systematically and calmly take down the men. After eliminating all of them, he wears his cloak again and smiles at the camera. The title of the movie is then revealed to be ‘Thug Life.’
