This is Karthi’s second film with Viruman Muttiah. The two had earlier worked together in the 2015 film Komban, which was a commercial success. The director is known for his rural action sequences like Marudhu and Kuttipuli, and the Viruman poster promises a level playing field.
Director Shankar’s daughter Aditi is debuting with this film. It also stars Prakash Raj, Rajkiran, Saranya Ponvannan and Suri in pivotal roles.
Produced by Karthi’s brother Suriya under the banner of 2D Entertainment, Viruman’s music is given by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
