As soon as the movie “Super Deluxe” released, positive reviews from everywhere kept on pouring. Considered as one of the aesthetic movies that has been ever released in Tamil Cinema, Super Deluxe recognised as a “Cult Classic” within two days of it’s release.
The film has received unbelievably positive reviews from critics across the country. On the other hand, though the audience’s feedback is predominantly positive, the film has also received some negative response.
Inspired from movies like Babel, Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Pulp fiction, Thyagaraja Kumararaja handled it very well as far as technical aspects and story links are concerned. But to our shock, now a group of transgenders has come up with an allegation saying that what was showed in the movie about transgenders has no reality at all.
In the film, Vijay Sethupathi’s character Shilpa confesses to abducting and giving two kids to someone for money. Shilpa reveals that she later found those kids at a traffic signal, begging, and with terrible physical disabilities.
This particular scene has not gone down well with a few transgender people, who have questioned when has anyone from their community kidnapped or harmed a child. They have demanded the arrest of Vijay Sethupathi.
Several representatives of the transgender community have expressed their opposition against the half baked portrayal of their gender in Super Deluxe. Earlier a set of transgenders condemned the role and demanded the arrest of Vijay Sethupathi. They said ““We could not get into our house that easily as you showed in the movie. And the way you showed that you are a married Transgender is not at all believable. It is hurting to see a respectable actor like you to do such role. We never expected an actor who shows his affection in public functions towards Transgenders to shame us like this” said Revathi.
