Vijayakanth's last release Dharmapuri featured the actor in the lead role, mouthing his aspirations.
However, his next release Sabari would be different.
According to director Suresh, 'We have ensured that the movie would be apolitical. It is a film which dwells about the evils in the society and suggests a remedy for it. Vijayakanth plays a doctor and he has very less dialogues in the movie.'
Says Suresh, 'Vijayakanth completed the dubbing in less than six hours. He speaks less but does more in the movie. He is a brainy and brawny doctor.'
Jyothirmayi and Malavika play the heroines while Pradeep Rawat plays the baddie.
