About Dhruva Natchathiram Movie:

Dhruva Natchathiram: Chapter One – Yuddha Kaandam is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language spy action thriller film directed and produced by Gautham Vasudev Menon. It stars Vikram leading an ensemble cast consisting of Ritu Varma, R. Parthiban, Radhika Sarathkumar, Simran, and Vinayakan. The film features music composed by Harris Jayaraj, whereas cinematography is handled by Manoj Paramahamsa, S. R. Kathir, and Vishnu Dev, and editing is done by Anthony.

It was originally set to star Suriya in the lead role, but the project was shelved after a disagreement between the director and actor over the script of the film.

The film began production with only Vikram and Anu Emmanuel as confirmed members of the cast in January 2017. In early February 2017, Anu Emmanuel opted out of the film citing scheduling issues following Vikram’s decision to alter his schedule, so that he could simultaneously shoot for Sketch (2018). Gautham Vasudev Menon signed on Ritu Varma to replace her, after being impressed by Varma’s performance in the Telugu film Pelli Choopulu (2016)

The film’s music and background score was composed by Harris Jayaraj. It marked Jayaraj’s seventh collaboration with Menon; since the duo’s debut film Minnale (2001).

The film was shot in seven countries, and languished in production hell for years owing to Menon’s financial constraints, before concluding in February 2023.

Dhruva Natchathiram: Chapter One – Yuddha Kaandam is expected to be released in 2024.

By November 2023, Netflix was “on the verge” of acquiring the film’s streaming rights, while Kalaignar TV was in negotiations for acquiring the satellite rights.
