Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman is composing the music for this venture. The music director and the star are associating for the second time in a row which has upped the expectations for this album.

All eyes are on Sarkar as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high.

The film is expected to hit the silver screens on November 7 to coincide with Deepavali.
Touted to be a political action thriller, the filmâ€™s shooting commenced some months ago but was stalled for nearly 45 days owing to the film industry strike. Sources say that this would not hamper its scheduled release and that the team was working to meet the deadline at any cost.
