Vikraman is a person who pursues perfection in everything he does. He is deeply rooted in the concept of friendship, love and family. Meanwhile, Adithyan is portrayed as someone whose character is almost opposite to Vikraman. The film is set to release for Eid on 25 July 2014.
"I play the character of Deepika Pai, a Konkani girl in the film. This film is the story of three of us, Vikraman, Adithyan and Deepika. It is about friendship, love and hatred between us. We all had fun at the set of the film and I felt great to work with Lalu uncle (Director Lal Jose) again after "Pullipulikalum Aatinkuttiyum." This is going to be one of the finest films from him," said Namitha Pramod to International Business Times India edition.

The film is scripted by Iqbal Kuttipuram. Lal Jose – Iqbal Kuttipuram team have earlier made well acclaimed films like "Arabikkatha" (2007) and "Diamond Necklace" (2012). Thus, "Vikramadithyan" is also expected to be a well crafted film.
