Leading Tamil actor-producer Sivakarthikeyan's Ayalaan produced by KJR Studios and being distributed by 24 AM Studios will open in cinemas this Diwali in November and the buzz for the upcoming film has shot up after the reveal of the film's release plans.

In the Ayalaan glance that has been released, we see Sivakarthikeyan making a stellar entrance by sliding inside a high-tech facility and escaping the clutches of what appears to be a robot, with the visuals then showing stairs getting formed on their own. The scene then progresses to an alien taking steps forward before it appears in all its glory and the short promo teaser ending with a spaceship traveling at supersonic speed to reveal the film's title. The Ayalaan glance is a visual treat from start to finish and the efforts of the team has undoubtedly paid off as the CGI and the VFX in this teaser are nothing short of top-quality Hollywood standards.
Earlier this week, KJR Studios had released a press note saying, "with Ayalaan, we did not want to compromise on quality, as it will have the highest number of CGI shots for a Pan-Indian movie. And, hence, we needed the time to achieve perfection. It also gives us immense pleasure to let you know that Ayalaan will be the first full-length Live-Action film in Indian Cinema to have over 4500+ VFX shots with the Alien character playing a pivotal role throughout the movie. At this moment I'd like to thank Phantom FX, the company behind the CG of many Hollywood movies, for the exceptional CG work they've delivering for Ayalaan." Apart from Sivakarthikeyan, the film also stars Rakul Preet Singh as the female lead, followed by Karunakaran, Yogi Babu, Sharad Kelkar, Isha Koppikar, Banupriya, Balasaravanan among others in pivotal roles, with the technical team featuring the likes of cinematographer Nirav Shah, editor Ruben, and production designer T. Muthuraj.
