Red Giant Movies’ Pongal release Ilaignan with the magical touch of Kalaignar M. Karunanidhi’s pen weaving the story, screenplay and dialogues is a period film of 1950s depicting the story of a mother and son. This is Kalaignar’s 75th script. It is based on the novel ‘Thaai Kaviyam’ made at a whopping budget of Rs.30 crores. Annamalai, Basha, Veera fame Suresh Krishna directs this movie which is his
golden 50th directorial venture. S Martin of Martin Productions has embarked on this multi crore project banking on the direction of Suresh Krishna and Kalaignar’s penning.

The entire movie is being shot in and around a ship named 'The Rainbow'. The vast shipping backyard erected by award-winning Art Director Dharani forms the setting which was made by 700 people spanning across 3 months, spending Rs. 3 crores.

This is the second venture of Pa. Vijay as a hero after he made his debut in Gnabagangal. Pa. Vijay fits the role of a yester year revolutionary youth.

The female lead cast comprises of Meera Jasmine and Remya Nambeesan. The debut actress of ‘Run’ Meera Jasmine has carved a niche for herself through her fine acting. Remya Nambeesan who made her debut in Cheran’s ‘Raman Thediya Seethai’ fits into a peppy or a homely role very easily. The tall glam girl of Kollywood Namitha is also sharing lead space. Supporting cast too encompasses big names in the industry: Khushboo, Suman, Vadivelu, Nassar, Rajendran and Delhi Ganesh.

Vidyasagar has composed the music to the soulful lyrics of the movie’s hero Pa. Vijay who is the lyricist too. Vidyasagar’s music always has a certain expectation level fastened to it and mostly never goes down that mark; the same is expected now too. The songs are already a rage in the market. Camera is handled by B.L. Sanjay.

Come Pongal, we will get to see what this period film, a genre of rarity gets to harvest on silver screen with quite a strong crew and cast.
