Kolanji is an Indian Tamil comedy drama film co-written and directed by Dhanaram Saravanan. Produced by Naveen, the film features actors Samuthirakani, Sanghavi, Rajaji and Naina Sarwar in the lead roles. Featuring cinematography by Vijayan Munusamy and music composed by Natarajan Sankaran.



In February 2015, it was reported that director Naveen, who made his debut in Moodar Koodam (2013), was working on his second film titled Kolanji for producer Nehru Nagar Nandhu, who had earlier produced the Vidharth-starrer Kaadu (2014).[2] Actors Samuthirakani, Sanghavi, Rajaji and Naina Sarwar were selected to portray the lead roles, with production beginning in mid-2015. Samuthirakani had agreed to work on the film after being impressed by Naveen's previous film, while Sanghavi made a comeback to acting after a ten year sabbatical.[3] Soon after production was completed in August 2015, Naveen clarified that he had taken over as the producer of the film and that his assistant, Dhanaram Saravanan was the director and a co-writer for the project.[4] Naveen revealed that Kolanji was the tale of a twelve year old boy who wants to live life on his own terms, while his father wants to raise his children in a highly disciplined manner. The film was primarily shot in rural places including Rasipuram and Kokkarayan Pettai.[5]

The film's promotion campaign began in mid-2016, but the venture was delayed owing to the presence of several other bigger budget films at the box office. Cinematographer P. C. Sriram released the film's motion poster in June 2016, while actor Silambarasan released a teaser for the film during the same month.[6][7]
