Jayam Ravi’s most-awaited space thriller Tik Tik Tik will be released on June 22. The actor took to Twitter to make the official announcement on Saturday.

Touted as India’s first space thriller, Tik Tik Tik, which is bankrolled by V Hitesh Jhabak, was in production for a year from October 2016 to October 2017.

The film stars Nivetha Pethuraj of Oru Naal Koothu fame as the female lead and popular Singaporean actor Aaron Aziz will be playing villain. It also stars Arjunan Nandakumar, Jayaprakash, Ramesh Thilak. Jayam Ravi’s son Aarav will also be debuting as a child actor through it.

The film’s title track 'Kurumba', composed by D Imman and performed by Sid Sriram, was released in December last year. The film’s soundtrack was later released in January 2018.

Originally slated for Republic Day release this January, the film was pushed due to financial reasons and was soon caught in the TFPC strike.

According to reports, the film’s plot revolves around an asteroid that hits Ennore in Chennai and India’s Department of Defence finds out that another asteroid will hit the country and wreck havoc in seven days. The solution decided upon is to take the help of a trained magician who can escape any given situation. The hurdles that this trained artist faces, including the shot in the end that looks a lot similar to the one in The Martian, will form the rest of the story.

Director Shakti Soundar Rajan has previously collaborated with Jayam Ravi in Miruthan. Released in 2016, the film was promoted to be the first zombie apocalypse film to be made in Tamil or Telugu.

Shakti’s 2014 thriller Naaigal Jagradhai with Sibiraj opened to positive reviews. With Tik Tik Tik, Shakti has gained a reputation for working on unique genres in the industry.

Jayam Ravi’s previous film, Vanamagan, was with director AL Vijay. He also has Sundar C’s upcoming magnum opus Sangamithra in the pipeline.

Sri Thenandal Films have acquired distribution rights for the film. Interestingly, Kamal Haasan’s 1981 thriller was also called Tik Tik Tik.
