It's the fresh teaming of Vikram and Trisha in 'Samy' - K. Balachander's home production for his banner Kavithalaya. The film is written and directed by Hari, who had directed the Prashant starrer 'Thamizh'. The film has music by Harris Jairaj and cinematography by Priyan.
The star cast includes comedians Ramesh Kanna, Vivek and Murthy, and character actors Vijaykumar, Rajesh, Illavarasu, Manorama, Delhi Ganesh, Sumitra, Ponnambalam, Thyagu, Dalapathy Dinesh, Bala Singh, Azhagu and Keerthana. Also playing crucial roles are Kota Sreenivas Rao, the popular villain of Telugu films, and Gnyanavel (producer of C.J. Combines).
The film's shooting schedule took place at Karaikudi recently. Taking part in it were Vikram, Trisha and some junior artistes. Some fight scenes were shot at the busy lanes in Karaikudi where Vikram chased some rowdies. The scene had Vikram worshipping at a temple and coming out of it. A gang of rowdies waiting for him outside the temple, to get him involved into a fight, provoke him by pulling at his shirt as he crosses them. Vikram instinctively grabs at a sickle nearby and attacks his tormentors. Seeing a furious and ferocious Vikram, the gang takes to its heels. Vikram chases them down lanes and gives them the bashing of their lives.
The fight scene was shot for five days, with Priyan canning the shots and Super Subbarayan choreographing the fights. The film has editing by K.T. Vijayan and is produced by Pushpa Kandasamy, daughter of K. Balachander.
