Brindavanam is a 2017 Indian Tamil language comedy drama film directed by Radha Mohan and produced by Shan Sutharsan.[2] The film stars Arulnithi and Vivek in the lead roles, while Tanya portrays the leading female role. Featuring music composed by Vishal Chandrasekhar, the film began production during August 2016 and was released on 26 May 2017.[3][4]



In June 2016, Shan Sutharsan of Vansan Movies announced that his production studio would simultaneously produce two Tamil films — a project by Radha Mohan and Mahendran Rajamani's Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal. Arulnithi and Vivek were reported to play leading roles, while newcomer Tanya, granddaughter of actor Ravichandran, was selected as the lead actress. M. S. Prabhu and Vishal Chandrasekhar were revealed as the film's cinematographer and composer, though Prabhu was later replaced by newcomer M.S. Vivekanand, an erstwhile assistant of P. C. Sriram.[5] Radha Mohan announced actor Vivek would portray himself and the film would be about the bonding between a popular actor and his fan, though distanced reports that the film would be along the lines of the 2016 Hindi film, Fan.[5] To prepare for his role, Arulnithi learnt sign language for ten days from expert Vijaya Bhaskar, who had also trained Jyothika for her role in Radha Mohan's Mozhi.[6][7]

The film was officially launched with the title Brindavanam in mid August 2016, with Vivek planting a tree sapling to commemorate the start of the film's shoot in Sakleshpur, Karnataka.[3][8] The director revealed that he opted against naming the film Mozhi 2 despite being tempted to, in order to underplay expectations for the film from audiences.[9][10] Brindavanam was shot for nine days in Sakleshpur, before the team moved to Ooty for a further 35 days to complete the shoot.[11][12]
