Kochadaiiyaan has turned out to become one of the biggest budget films of Kollywood. The Tamil flick, which is made simultaneously in multiple languages, is India's first motion capture photo-realistic 3D animated film.
Produced by Eros International, Kochadaiiyaan, according to Murali Manohar, has been made with the budget of Rs 125 crores. Speaking to the IANS, he revealed the figure but said that people should not draw comparions the Kollywood film with Hollywood big-budget films. International films like Avatar and Tin Tin were made with the budgets of Rs 3,000 and 4000 crores respectively, said the producer.
"Our film is made on a budget of Rs.125 crore and it took us two years. Avatar was made on a budget of Rs.3,000 crore and was completed in five years, while 'Tin Tin' cost about Rs.4,000 crore and also took about five years. Look at the budget and time, we can't compare Kochadaiiyaan with these films," Manohar told IANS.

Motion or performance capture technology helps filmmakers record the movements of the actor -- in specially made suits, which capture the emotions, gestures and body language of the actor and translates it into animation.
