The weight transformations Vikram had to endure for this film are considered extreme. From his usual 95 kgs, Vikram had to go down to his all-time lowest 40 kgs, risking his health and life at this point for the hunchback portions which consisted of about half of the film's run-time. After that, he had to quickly put on thrice that weight and reached 120 kgs, his all-time heaviest, for the "Ennodu Nee Irunthaal" song where he comes as a werewolf. For this role, director Shankar as well as many other technicians in the making video of the film released during the audio launch said that Vikram had to isolate himself from his family and society in general for almost a year due to these drastic transformations.

For the same reason, the lead villain joins hands with the model without any sort of hatred depicted as earlier. See more »
Prior to the release, the movie had immaculate hype for an "international quality" story line. Both from the director and the lead actor.
Vikram quoted this as his dream role and the best one he has done yet. The actor has put a lot of effort into the role, with not only the body transformations, but also with the incredible acting. But the real question is, was the story worth it? To me it's a NO!
Pithamagan, Sethu and Anniyan still stay to be the best of Vikram.
The story is something any 10 year old could guess.
STORY: A body builder and gym owner (Vikram) meets his crush, a TV model on a shooting set. Through a series of events Vikram is made to be a model by Amy. They eventually get into a relationship and become top models. Leading to jealousy and animosity, among the villains. There after it is a usual revenge story. Bad guy loses - good guy wins.
The movie has a lot of plot holes or should i say, factual errors. Mostly on the revenge methods.
MUSIC: AR Rahman fails in this one with his poor background score. No songs in the movie gets the fans dancing. But ARR saves his name with "Ennodu Nee Irundhaal" song, which is absolutely breath taking.
Cinematography: PC Shriram, nothing more to be said. The visuals from China are more than enough to show what the man is capable of. Brilliant.
Make UP & Art: Absolutely brilliant. 10/10.
In an interview Shankar, describes himself as "never disappoints". Sorry sir, but after watching films like Anniyan and Mudhalvan, you certainly did disappoint us.
The movie "I" is technically brilliant, but intellectually stupid.
A word to Shankar sir before your next movie, i understand your urge to take Indian cinema to the next level but please there is more to cinema than just graphics, it's called story and that is something you know better than any of us.
Please sir, we miss intelligent flicks like Mudhalvan and Anniyan.
