#AayirathilOruvan (English: One Man in a Thousand) is a 2010 Indian Tamil-language action adventure film[2] written and directed by Selvaraghavan. Produced by R. Ravindran, it features music composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar, cinematography by Ramji and editing by Kola Bhaskar.[3] The film stars Karthi, Reemma Sen and Andrea Jeremiah in the lead roles with Parthiepan playing a pivotal role.

The film begins with an episode in 1279 AD, when the successor of the last great Chola Emperor, pending invasion, sends his people to a mystery location, to survive the threat. The story resumes with an archaeologist, a coolie and a member of the army going in search of the archaeologist's father to the ruined city that was the place the exiled Chola Prince retreated to. An expedition is promptly arranged, and on the course they stumble on the lost Chola civilization and its king and find unexplained links between them and the culture. The shocking events and the problems that arise forms the crux of the story.

Aayirathil Oruvan languished in development hell due to slow progress of the shoot and the extensive pre- and post-production works, evading release dates ranging one year.[4] Shooting began in July 2007, and took place in various locations with 2,000 extras in areas including Chalakudy, Kerala and Jaisalmer, Rajasthan amongst other regions throughout India.[5] Uncut, the film runs for 181 minutes, but the theatrical release was heavily cut at 153 minutes. The film released coinciding with the festival of Thai Pongal on 14 January 2010, with a Telugu dubbing version, titled Yugaaniki Okkadu, following six weeks later. Upon release, the film received positive reviews whilst proceeding to become a successful venture commercially.
Karthi as Muthu, a chief coolie working at Chennai Port leading a very low-class life alongside his fellow workers. Muthu, a die-hard fan of actor M. G. Ramachandran, is taken on the journey, and is one of the final trio who are taken into the Chola kingdom.[6][7]
Reemma Sen as Anitha Pandiyan, an intelligence officer who gathers a team to investigate Chandramouli's disappearance. Anitha is strong-minded, ruthless and determined but nurtures a soft feeling for Muthu during the course of the journey. The film became Reemma Sen's first attempt at parallel cinema following a series of roles in commercial projects, and her portrayal was highly appreciated by film critics.[8]
Andrea Jeremiah as Lavanya Chandramouli, Chandramouli's estranged daughter who also embarks on the journey to find her father. An archaeologist by profession, Lavanya becomes the quiet, tactical leader of the journey through her knowledge of the culture and the history of the Chola dynasty. She also becomes a love interest for Muthu. Andrea Jeremiah, like Karthi, appears in her second major role for the film, also singing parts of two songs which appear in the soundtrack. During the making of the film news websites linked Andrea with the director, Selvaraghavan, albeit to the pair's displeasure.[9]
R. Parthiepan as Chola King, successor and last of the Chola dynasty after escaping an attack from the Pandyas. The city that the Cholas lived in perished, resulting in the city becoming haunted with the Chola King, the head of the people. The images for the Chola King, not dated or named in the film, were kept under wraps prior to the movie's release. Parthiepan signed for the role after much speculation that Dhanush would be selected,[10] and his performance won plaudits from critics.[8]
Pratap K. Pothen as Chandramouli, an archaeologist who went missing during a search for the Chola kingdom, prompting a manhunt. Chandramouli earlier walked out on his daughter Lavanya and is later found trapped in the Chola kingdom.
Azhagam Perumal as Ravisekharan, who leads the army brigade in the search for Chandramouli. Known for his exploitative and violent ways, Ravisekharan develops a mutual foe in Muthu and his fellow workers.
Crane Manohar as Muthu's uncle
