Arrambam is a tamil action movie directed by Vishnuvardhan. The film will feature Ajith Kumar, Arya, Nayantara and Taapsee Pannu playing lead roles. Movie is Produced by A. M. Rathnam.
The movie opens up with Mumbai witnessing a series of bomb explosions. AK alias Ashok Kumar (Ajith) is the man behind it. Soon he kidnaps Arya, a hacker, and includes him in his larger plan. A flashback is revealed, where we are told about Maya (Nayantara), Anitha (Taapsee Pannu), who is the girlfriend of Arya and an aspiring TV journalist.
Ajith threatens to kill Anitha in order to make Arya to work for him. They successfully hack and bring down the server of a media company. Honest cop played by Kishore catches them and another flashback takes us to Ajith Kumar's past life in ATS (Anti Terrorist Squad) along with Sanjay (Rana Daggubati).
In the second half, we get a clear picture about the revenge drama. What is the motivate behind the bomb explosion? Does Ajith have a terrorist connection? Why does he target a media company? What role Nayantara has played? What next is a racy climax.
A teaser released without the title and became a popular video on YouTube. Vishnuvardhan said that Ajith Kumar will have a "salt and pepper" look, and that Ajith Kumar underwent supervised weight-training.
The first schedule of filming began on 2 June 2012 with portions involving Ajith Kumar, Nayantara and Arya. The filming was expected to proceed until the end of the month in Mumbai, but later cancelled due to monsoon and location was shifted to Bangalore and later in Hyderabad. On 7 September, during the second schedule, Taapsee Pannu joined the crew and began shooting her portions.
During the next schedule that started on 2 November 2012, filming was held in Mumbai and its suburban locations. While shooting an action sequence, Ajith Kumar was injured, suffering an ligament tear. Despite his injuries, Ajith Kumar continued shooting.
