The title of the movie is synonymous with the climate of Chennai. The heat and soaring temperatures in the city, also known as 'Veppam' in Tamil and 'Sega' in Telugu is the inspiration behind the film.
'Veppam' is a story based in Chennai and revolves around five main characters played by Nani, Karthik Kumar, Nithya Menon, Bindu Madhavi and a Koothup - pattarai artiste Muthukumar.
Two songs were shot in Pondicherry and Kodaikanal each.
There have been many scenes shot in the slum areas of Mylapore, Mandaveli, Visalakshithottam and Kuppams near Alwarpet.
The director said the film has a commercial element, including four songs. It is sleek without being elitist and is a fast-paced action thriller.
Another highlight of the film is its candid shots.
The film has been jointly produced by Gautham Menon's Photon Kathaas and RS Infotainment.
'Veppam' was predominantly shot in Chennai and its slum areas.
Director Anjana Ali Khan's debut venture 'Veppam', which will also be released simultaneously in Telugu as 'Sega' on July 29, took nearly three years to shape up to what it is today. Text: Expressbuzz.com
Director Anjana says that people in the age-group of 18-29 years should be able to connect with the film.
