Maayan is a 2001 Tamil drama film, directed by Nassar. The film stars himself, Roja and Vindhya in the lead roles while Thalaivasal Vijay, Ranjitha and Vadivelu among others form an ensemble cast. Music for the film was composed by Deva and the film opened to mixed reviews in September 2001.[1][2]



Nassar had originally planned only to direct the film, but after a leading actor pulled out, he chose to also portray the lead role.[3] Actress Ranjitha made a comeback to acting with Maayan, after taking a three year sabbatical post-marriage.[4] The film also marked the first major role for Pasupathy, whose previous venture Marudhanayagam was shelved.[5]

The first schedule of the shooting was held at Chennai and Chengelpet. The second schedule was then held at Tiruvannamalai and the forests of Thalaikonam.[6]


Soundtrack was composed by Deva.[7]
