2. Production

Earlier Saravanan considered Arya and Vishal for the lead role in this film. Later he said that "I watched the trailer of Kumki and was impressed with Vikram’s intense performance. Later when I met him in person, his height, build and confidence made an impact on me. Moreover, his positive attitude and eagerness to take on challenging roles made me sign him up for my film". Vikram Prabhu plays a city-bred youth seething with anger which surfaces every now and then. It was reported that Monal Gajjar was selected for an equally important female role. It was then reported that Surbhi, a Delhi-based girl was cast opposite Vikram. The heroine was not officially confirmed and it was said that the director wanted to reveal her identity once the shooting was completed.

The films principal photography was commenced on 19 September 2012 in Chennai.


3.1. Release Critical reception

Ivan Veramathiri opened to positive reviews by critics. Baradwaj Rangan wrote, Ivan Vera Maathiri is several notches above your usual action movie. The coincidences are smartly woven in, the location shooting is nicely done, and some of the action, especially a chase down a busy road, is staged quite well. More importantly, the film never loses sight of the personal costs, the collateral damage, that come with vigilantism". Sify wrote, "Director Saravanan after the brilliant Engeyum Eppothum is not in his elements in the thriller genre, where he wants to show the nexus between the politician and corrupt education system. However, he is able to keep the audience spellbound in the last 15 minutes of the film which is electrifying". Filmibeat gave 3 out of 5 and wrote, "Director Saravanan has tried hard to write a screenplay to churn out a message-oriented movie with commercial ingredients. His screenplay manages to win audience appreciation for his attempt". The Times of India gave 3 stars out of 5 wrote, "If the screenplay was the strength of Saravanans debut Enageyum Eppothum, here, it becomes a weakness as the directors attempts to make a "different" vigilante film get lost in implausibility, patronizing and sub-par acting. He has the outline of a terrific action movie plot; However, the scenes arent particularly interesting beyond a strictly functional level". Rediff gave 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, Ivan Veramathiri lacks the simplicity, depth and magic of Director M Saravanan’s last film Engeyum Eppodhum ". Indiaglitz gave 3 out of 5 saying "Saravanan is known to make his stories gripping and racy. With Sakthi and Srikar Prasad for technical expertise, the director has re-established his name in the tinsel town with Ivan Veramathiri. The films screenplay slows down at places, but that is not entirely a shortfall." Desimartini gave 3 out of 5. Behindwoods gave 3 stars out of 5 and wrote, Ivan Vera Mathiri is likely to leave you satisfied having served its well distributed portions of comedy, romance, action, suspense and all round entertainment".


3.2. Release Box office
