An international spy thriller becomes really international not just because of its content but also because of its technicians. Art direction is such a vital part in setting up the geography and the right feel for such an extravagant spy thriller like ‘Vivegam’. Milan, the art director of ‘Vivegam’ is said to have gone many extra yards to score a name for himself and the movie in this India’s first ever spy action thriller starring Ajith Kumar, Kajal Agarwal, Vivek Oberoi and Akshara Haasan is directed by Siva and this Magnus opus is produced by Sathya Jyothi films.
Speaking about ‘Vivegam’, art director Milan says, ” ‘Vivegam’ was an incredible experience in every way. The script and the scale was much higher and different than anything we have seen before. Being grand is one thing and being international is another thing. But ‘Vivegam’ is both. Tamil cinema will be proud of ‘Vivegam’. As per the movie’s script we hunted for remote locations where human life is not a regular sight. Shooting in the freezing weather was tough to handle but the team pulled it off amazingly. I have followed a specific design pattern for this script which requires an international touch. Ajith sir led the way in hard word and dedication. It was a pure joy and honour to work with him. One can never stop learning from him. Director Siva gave me ample support and freedom in exploring many artistic aspects of art direction in this movie. His vision and efforts for ‘Vivegam’ has been unbelievable. I am sure the movie is going to be a marvellous treat and joy to all Ajith sir fans and the rest of the audience “
