The story revolves around Sarva (Jai), whose horoscope dangers the person he marries. Sarva marries Divya (Catherine Tresa). Malar (Raai Laxmi), a shapeshifting snake, claims to be the wife of Vikram, who reincarnated as Sarva. If Sarva and Malar reunite, he also will turn into a shapeshifting snake. How they both escape this forms the rest of the movie.
The first schedule of Neeya 2 was shot in Pondicherry, and the subsequent ones were completed in Talakonam, Chennai, Madurai, and Chalakudy. The second schedule began on February 6 and the shoot go on until February 22. Jai plays the lead and will be seen in two different dimensions, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar portrays a snake woman. Raai Laxmi and Catherine Tresa are the other female lead roles. Bala Saravanan will be providing comedy. Director L. Suresh informed, “The grandeur is nowhere going to be seen as a gaudy factor. But the script demands such elements, which will definitely be a great experience to the audiences. One of the greatest highlights of this film is a 22-ft CGI motion captured serpent to be seen in an important role and will be seen throughout the movie. To make sure that we got the exact serpent as we imagined, cinematographer Rajevel and I had to travel across different places of India and Thailand. Finally, we happened to find the exact one in Bangkok. It took enough time to understand its physique, body language and nature. We’re sure its appearance and presence throughout the film would be an enjoyable experience for universal audiences.”
