Miruthan is a Tamil action and horror film which is written and directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan, which was mainly shot in Coimbatore and Ooty within 54 days. It is one of the Tamil films which was not really liked by the audience when it was released in 2016, but it was very much appreciated by movie buffs and critics to introduce a new format of zombies in the Kollywood industry. It was a type of experimental film in which zombies type were introduced.
Even after not much success of the first part director Shakti Soundar Rajan has teamed up with the producer again and has officially announced the sequel of the film which will be named ‘Miruthan 2’ or ‘Tik Tik Tik,’ and it is expected that he will return with the same cast and production team. They have decided to make Miruthan as a superhero franchise. It is filmed for horror-loving personalities. The first part ended as the main lead actor became a zombie, but in this sequel, it is announced that the actor will be seen as a Superhero who will save the city. This step has been taken to attract the audience of all age groups, which lacked in the first part.
In the story, a zombie apocalypse was shown in the state of Tamil Nadu that starts after a venomous liquid spill from a container outside a chemical laboratory in Ooty. Karthik is a traffic police officer who learns of the epidemic when his sister goes missing, and he finds himself attacked by the zombies. He teams up with some doctors and his girlfriend to escape from Ooty and find a cure for the epidemic, while zombies keep spreading from place to place.
