The trailer of the upcoming film Balloon, starring Jai and Anjali as the lead pair, is going viral ever since its release.

A horror thriller, this film is directed by Sinish with Dhilip Subbarayan, Arun Balaji and Nandakumar bankrolling it under their banner 70mm Entertainment and Farmer's Master Plan Productions.

Right from the time the trailer has been out, there have been talks that Balloon could have been inspired from the Hollywood movie It, which was an adaptation of Stephen Kingā€™s popular novel by the same name.

There is strong similarity between some of the characters seen in the trailer with those in It. However, the filmā€™s director is reported to have said in an interview that he has credited all the films that inspired him to make Balloon, making it clear that it is not based on one single movie.

Interestingly, the film has a song ā€˜Neenga Shut Up Pannungaā€™, the punchline Oviya had used while in the Bigg Boss house. When there is a tribute song for her, it is only reasonable to have at least one special dialogue for her and it goes: ā€œAvanga enna Bigg Boss veetuku poi Oviya va pakaporanga, pei a paka poranga,ā€ which Yogi Babu says.

Starring Jai and Anjali as the main leads, the star cast of Balloon also includes Janani Iyer, Chandini Tamilarasan, Yogi Babu, Karthik Yogi and Raj Tarun. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music for this film with Saravanan wielding the camera and Rubens editing it.

The lyrics for all the songs have been penned by Arun Raja Kamaraj and the popular song 'Neenga Shut Up Pannunga' has been rendered by ace musician Anirudh Ravichander. The film is touted to hit the silver screens on December 29th, 2017.
