Produced by KJR Studios, the Santhanam-starrer film will also have Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh in an important role.
After much speculations about the OTT release of the upcoming Tamil movie Dikkiloona, it is confirmed that it will stream online on September 10 on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Karthik Yogi who made his debut as a director with this film tweeted: "Finally the wait is over. #Dikkiloona is Premiering exclusively on @ZEE5Tamil on September 10th. Kandu magizhungal.."
The shooting of the film was completed in March last year and the makers had planned for a theatrical release for the film in April last year. The release got postponed due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. The sci-fi romantic comedy will now release on ZEE5 Tamil. This has been a much-awaited movie of actor Santhanam. The actor will be seen playing a triple role as a protagonist, antagonist and comedian.

The title of the film is inspired by the word Dikkilona that Goundamani and Senthil can be seen using in their 1993 action film Gentleman.
Written and directed by Karthik Yogi, the film stars Anagha and Shirin Kanchwala as the female leads, and Yogi Babu, Rajendran, Anandaraj and Harbhajan Singh in supporting roles. The Indian cricketer will be making his debut in Kollywood with this film. He had started shooting for the film in December 2019.
The music for the film is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja who has remixed a classic song of his father Illayraja, Per Vachalum Vaikama Ponalum, for the time travel film. The film is produced by KS Sinish and Kotapadi J. Rajesh.
The official trailer of Dikkiloona was released in August last year which hinted at the story taking place between the years 2020 and 2027. This has got the expectations of the audience high as this would be the second Tamil film based on time travel after the 2015 film Indru Netru Naalai.
