The problems they face during their journey form the crux. It is a comedy film with fantasy elements incorporated.”

Quiz him about choosing the name ‘Maanik’, which is popular for being the Rajinikanth’s name in Baasha, he says, “The name is easy and has a nice ring to it. Also, it is catchy and hence the reach will be wide.”
Suza has a solid role to play, he asserts. While Dharan Kumar composes the tracks, Madhumitha, Manobala, Aruldas form the supporting cast.
