Direction: Siddique
Music: Vidyasagar
Production: C. Ramesh Babu
After facing a series of obstacles, Kavalan is finally set to hit screens this Pongal much to the delight of Vijay's fans. Kavalan, a remake of Malayalam movie Bodyguard, is directed by Siddique and produced by C Ramesh Babu. The film was first titled Kaavalkaran and then named Kaaval Kadhal and finally given the name Kavalan.

Kavalan is about a youngster Arun who aspires to be
a bodyguard of powerful people in the state. He finally manages to become the bodyguard of Rajkiran and his daughter Asin, who is a college student. The film will have bright and funny moments with an unexpected twist towards the end. As Vijay's fans expect, this movie promises to be a clean entertainer as is evident in the movie's trailer.

Siddique, the director of the Malayalam version as well, has remade this film with elements suiting the tastes of Tamil audience. Siddique had earlier directed Vijay in Friends which is also a remake of a Malayalam film. Vijay can be cherished on the screen after Sura. Though Sura had a lot of political references in it, Siddique has made it clear that this movie will be a pleasant family entertainer. Asin will be paired with Vijay for the third time in her career, the earlier movies being Sivakasi and Pokkiri. Vadivelu's comedy can also be expected to be a highlight of the movie.

Cinematography has been handled by Ekambaram whose work in Kandasamy was praised a lot. Music is always an USP in Vijay's movies and Vidyasagar has given just the right mix of songs for Kavalan. The 'Step Step' song has won many hearts. The film has been shot in various locations including the Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) in Vellore where the blockbuster movie Endhiran was shot.

Will Vijay and Asin's pairing prove third time lucky? Let us wait and watch what this Kavalan does to mesmerize fans this Pongal.
