The film, which will be produced by SS Vasan and S Parthi’s Silver Line Film Factory, will be directed by LI Kannan, who has worked on the special effects for films like ‘Enthiran’, ‘Anniyan’, ‘Eeram’, ‘Ghajini’ and ‘Sivakasi’.
Harris Jeyaraj has been roped in to do the background score for the film. Zarine, who was seen in ‘Veer’ opposite Salman Khan, will play the female lead, and Pasupathy and Shanmuga Raja also play prominent roles in the film.
N Karthik is cranking the camera, Mahesh handles the editing and SS Murthy (of Aval Peyar Thamizharasi and Avargalum Ivargalum fame), is the art director.
‘Karikalan’ is said to be using some sophisticated technology, like Animatronics, Miniature and Computer Graphics. A few portions have already been shot at the Thalakonam Forests.
