Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru (English: God is there, Kumar) is a 2016 Indian Tamil romantic comedy film written and directed by M. Rajesh and produced by T. Siva. The film stars G. V. Prakash Kumar, Anandhi and Nikki Galrani in the leading roles, while Prakash Raj and RJ Balaji play supporting roles. The film began production during March 2016. The movie released on 18 November 2016 and received negative reviews from critics.
The music is composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar, with lyrics for four songs written by Na. Muthukumar. An extra song in the album “Locality Boys” was released earlier than the soundtrack as a single, and features music composed by Bobo Shashi and Karunas and lyrics written by Dharran and Karunas.
Director M. Rajesh and actor-composer G. V. Prakash Kumar announced that they would collaborate for a new comedy film during early November 2015, after the director had been impressed with the actor’s performance in Trisha Illana Nayanthara (2015). Titled Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru after a dialogue from Selvaraghavan’s Pudhupettai (2006), Rajesh signed on actresses Nikki Galrani and Avika Gor to play the film’s leading female roles after Priya Anand and Keerthy Suresh were linked to the project. T. Siva agreed to produce the film, while actors RJ Balaji and Prakash Raj joined the cast of the film in early 2016.
Production began for the film at Sathyam Cinemas during early March 2016, before the team shifted to film scenes in Pondicherry. G. V. Prakash Kumar and RJ Balaji suffered injuries following a car accident during the making of the film in late March 2016. In May 2016, Rajesh chose to replace Avika Gor with Anandhi, after the actress had difficulties filming scenes in the Tamil language.
