First Indian (Tamil) Space Movie: Tik Tik Tik

OK, let’s admit that Tik Tik Tik is not the first Indian movie set outside the earth – in the space. Two earlier movies, one Tamil movie starring MGR and one Hindi movie were primarily set in the space, way back in the 1960s. Two more films, Chanda Mama Door Ke and Aamir Khan’s biopic on Rakesh Sharma are also set in space, but they are yet to be made and released.

In the meanwhile, the Kollywood Padam Tik Tik Tik starring Jayam Ravi and Nivetha Pethuraj should get the honor of being the first Indian movie set (predominantly) in space with genuine and believable Computer Graphics + Sets all done in namma Chennai by namma makkal.

It seems 170 technicians worked round the clock to complete the project within 5 months! As per the Wiki page, 80 minutes is the duration of Visual Effects scenes in this movie.  Ain’t that cool 🙂

Have a look at the below trailer to catch a glimpse of the neat job done by the CG team. The movie is releasing this Republic Day (Jan. 26, 2018) and I am eager to watch it on the big screen. Although I may have to wait until the next week to actually see it, I feel excited nevertheless.

Are you? 🙂

Update: News just in on Twitter that the release of this movie maybe postponed to Feb. 2018. Will update this page with the release date when it is announced.

The director, Shakti Sounder Rajan, has directed another science fiction movie in Tamil – Miruthan. Due to the gory horror theme, I gave it a skip then.
