Ilayaraja looks like a very interesting film. Madhav Ramdasan has previously directed two movies – Melvilasom and Apothecary.

His film Apothecary starring Suresh Gopi, Jayasurya and Abhirami was also a critical success.

Guinness Pakru is a highly talented actor as we have seen from his performances in movies like My Big Father and Athbhutha Dweepu. Since Madhav Ramdasan is well known for extracting the best out of his actors, we can expect to see a good performance from Pakru.
Ilayaraja’s story is penned by the director himself while screenplay and dialogues are penned by Sudeep T George. Pappinu is cranking the camera and edits will be handled by Sreenivas Krishna. Ratheesh Vegha has been signed as the music director.
