Hero & Heroine

The character was coined, keeping Vikram in mind, but he cannot give a literary performance. Hence Karthik was called for, however, he is not in a state to perform. So Thangar Bachan went all the way back to his first hero, Parthiban.

Uma is featuring as a child's mother. Even for this role, several actresses were considered. Finally Bachan decided upon Sumithra's daughter Uma, who can indeed speak Tamil well.

Swathi, who has now changed her name to Swathika, has performed in a role, with a touch of modesty.


Most of the scenes of the movie have been shot in Palani over- flowing a lot of devotees of Lord Muruga.

Bachan had a long wait, as he wanted Ilayaraja to compose the songs. Finally the wait went in vain and Vidyasagar was signed.

Vairamuthu was given lyrics for the first time in Bachan's direction. Well, Thangar Bachan is anticipating that "Thendral", will also turn out to be a mega hit in Tamil Cinema like "Azhagi".
