Santhanam Is A Time Traveller In The ‘Dikkiloona’ Trailer; Out Now

The trailer of Santhanam’s upcoming film Dikkiloona is out now. The film helmed by debutant Karthik Yogi will see Santhanam playing three different roles for the first time. Dikkiloona is being jointly bankrolled by Kotapadi J Rajesh’s KJR Studios and KS Sinish’s Soldiers Factory.


It’s 2027. There’s lightning striking, a car drifting, smoke filling up, and an exagerrated shot of a foot stomping the floor. What else but the quintessential ‘introduction scene’ of Santhanam can it be? But the hype ends right there. He walks into an old factory to find Yogi Babu and Arun Alexander, and ta group of ‘scientists’ or at least they claim so, working on a time machine. After a few bad jokes, he’s inside the contraption, back to 2020, to apparently stop a horrific incident of his life – no not corona, thankfully, but his wedding.

What follows with the voiceover of Nizhalgal Ravi is a glimpse of almost every character in the film – Harbhajan Singh, AnaghaShirin Kanchwala, Anand RajPrashanth RangaswamyMotta Rajendran, Sha Ra, and Munishkanth, some more bad jokes, and the three characters of Santhanam.

KJR Studios took to Twitter to release the trailer.

The film’s title, Dikkiloona, is inspired by the famous game comedian Senthil plays in director Shankar‘s action-drama Gentleman (1993).

While cricketer Harbhajan Singh plays the antagonist, Natpe Thunai fame Anagha and Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu Odu Raja fame Shirin Kanchwala play the female leads in the film.

Apart from them, Dikkiloona also stars Madhumitha and Chithra Lakshmanan. Aravind Kumar is handling cinematography, Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing music, Jomin is editing and A Rajesh is helming art. Dinesh Subbarayan is handling stunts with Sheriff on dance choreography. A Keerthivasan is handling costumes with Arunraja Kamaraj and Saravedi Saran penning lyrics.


Recently, the makers released three posters from the film revealing the characters. The audio rights of the film have been bagged by Sony Music and the Dikkiloona team has also revealed that ‘Vechalum Vaikama’ from Michael Madana Kama Rajan, an Ilaiyaraaja 90’s classic sung by Malaysia Vasudevan featuring Kamal Haasan has been reprised by Yuvan in the film. A glimpse of it can be heard in the trailer.
