Veeram is an adaptation of the legendary poet William Shakespeare's classic Macbeth. Set in the 13th century Kerala, Veeram resuscitates the real-life character made famous through folklore, literature and songs.
Sharing broad similarities with the rise and fall of Macbeth, the film spans the journey of Chandu (played by Kunal), a Kalaripayattu warrior, who meets a tragic end as an outcome of betrayal.
Produced by Chandrakala Arts, Veeram has been shot in three different languages -- Hindi, English and Malayalam.
The film is directed by Jayaraj and is his fifth in the Navarasa series after Karunam, Shantham, Bheebhatsa and Adbutham. It has been shot in the scenic locales of the Ellora caves in Aurangabad, Fatehpur Sikri in Agra and in a few areas in Kerala.
