Director Shakthi Sounder Rajan and Jayam Ravi worked together in Miruthan, which was released last year to give Tamil film buffs their first ever zombie film. And now, they have teamed up again for Tik Tik Tik, which will be the first space thriller in Tamil cinema. In fact, it would be the first every space thriller in the history of Indian cinema.
While Hollywood has churned out quite a few space thrillers which left film buffs enthralled, it would certainly be a new experience here in Kollywood. Directed by Shakthi Sounder Rajan, the film has Aaron Aziz, Nivetha Pethuraj and Ramesh Thilak in pivotal roles. It may be noted here that Aaron Aziz is a Singapore-based actor and has acted in Singaporean and Malaysian dramas and films.
Tik Tik Tik would mark his debut in the Tamil film industry as he plays a powerful and menacing villain in it. On choosing Nivetha Pethuraj to play the female lead, we hear from sources that she has been selected because she is an expert in martial arts and her role requires those skills. The film is produced by Hitesh Jhabak.
Speaking about the film, the director is reported to have said, â€śWe have explored the space genre in a commercial set-up. Itâ€™s very challenging to engage audience when the story shifts to space as there are not too many elements to play with. Our film has no romance and even the songs have been shot as montages but we have elements we think will appeal to everybody.â€ť
The filmâ€™s technical crew includes D Imman for music, S Venkatesh for camera and Pradeep E Ragav for editing. The filmâ€™s teaser is slated for August 15th and the release date is expected to revealed very soon.
