Vikram did lots of work to look perfect in the movie. The director himself gives the hairstyle to Vikram. According Shankar, the character of Lingesan was the most difficult to portrait on screen, but Vikram did a wonderful job. For the character of Diya, the director needed someone who physically looks like a model in her actual look. After seeing Amy Jackson the director selects her for the character of Diya. “I” is a technically perfect movie as PC Sreeram’s camera did wonderful works. The music created by AR Rahman also gives the movie an authentic touch of romance. The art director T Muthuraj also created the perfect scenario of the movie.Editor Anthony did a bit crispier job.
