The same lyricist has written ‘Ava Ennennavo’, an entertaining number sung by Haricharan. ‘Aagayam’, sung by Solar Sai and written by Vairamuthu, is interesting, while ‘Dhoorathula’ by the same lyricist is sung by Belli Raj and Chinmayi.

What they say...

Director James David: I worked as an assistant to Aabhavanan and was an associate director for films such as Neevenunda Chellam, Rameshwaram, Rasikkum Seemane, Oru Mutham Oru Yutham and National award-winning 3D animation movie Inimae Nangathan. I have also written the screenplay and dialogues for quite a few films. This movie has been shot in exotic locations in Kumuli and Thekkady. For the first time in Tamil cinema, a tiger will be seen playing a full-fledged character role. The cat has features in a few Hollywood projects such as The Hangover, Burning Bright and We Bought a Zoo. We are proud to say we are part of ‘Incredible India’ and support the ‘Save the Tiger’ project. We’re, also happy our film has shaped up well.

Hero Tarun: I am an engineering graduate from Melbourne, Australia and enrolled for several acting courses there. I made by debut as Deepak in Neethane En Ponvasantham. I am thankful to my director James David for introducing me as a hero in this film.

Music director B. R. Rejin: I come from Mailam, a village near Tindivanam, where I completed my schooling. I was interested in music even then. My elder brother Madhu, brought me to Chennai. Incidentally, he plays the harmonium and is a singer. My musical education commenced with Nityanandam in Ayanavaram from whom I learnt to play the harmonium and Abdul Sattar who gave me piano lessons. My ambition is to learn various forms of music and become a musician with all-round knowledge, rather than someone who chases quick success. In 2002, I completed the eighth grade solo piano examination conducted by the Trinity College of Music, London. I started my career by composing jingles, theme music albums and re-recording. In 2010, director Bhuvanai Kannan gave me a break by introducing me as music director in his film Sankaran Kovil. I am proud I had an opportunity to work with late musical genius R. Sudarsanam’s son, guitarist Sadanandam, for the re-recording of the Tamil film Kulir 100 Degrees. I am also grateful to editing legend B. Lenin, who gave me opportunity to score the music for the Tamil films Unnil Tholaindhen and Ninaivugal Azhivadhillai. People have appreciated my music in those movies.
