The most popular Polimer news portal came up with a report on the evening of July 3rd, accusing director Lokesh kanagaraj of stealing the story of his blockbuster film “Kaithi” from a prisoner. They termed the filmmaker as “Mini” Atlee in their title and blatantly said that he stole the story from a prisoner. Producer S.R Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures who produced the film immediately came up with a tweet defending his director. He who seemingly got frustrated, said that it is very cheap to degrade a filmmaker without knowing about the full details of a case and asked the news channel to advice the admin.

Having no heroine, songs or flashback, “Kaithi” film impressed the audience for its strong and intense plot. It revolves around a story of a released prisoner who spent 10 years of Jail sentence. On his way to meet his daughter for the first time, the protagonist was forced to help a senior police officer from deadly drug lords.

The film was widely compared with films such s “Con air” and “Assault on Precinct no 13”. However, the report of Polimer said that the story of “Kaithi” was written by a prisoner in “Puzhal” jail. It said that Rs. 4 crore was demanded from producer S.R Prabhu as a penalty for buying the story from the prisoner by paying him Rs.15,000 as advance and making the entire film which collected Rs.105 crores.

The story of “Kaithi” belongs to a Kerala based prisoner named “Rajeev” who spent his sentence in the “Puzhal” jail regarding a murder case, says the report. He got released from the jail in the year 2007 and met producer S.R Rajan with his friend and narrated the story to him. The producer reportedly paid Rs.15,000 as advance and promised to pay the rest when the story gets made as a film. Rajeev was not informed about anything regarding it after that, said Polimer.



Recently, he watched “Kaithi” when it was played in Television and got shocked to realize that his story was made as a film. He who believed that one part of his story was made as a first half, approached court with the help of a lawyer with the evidences he got. Based on that, Court has ordered to ban producer S.R Prabhu to produce the sequel of the film and also a notice was sent to him to pay Rs. 4 crore as a compensation for making a film with Rajeev’s story without his permission.


When the producer was approached, he reportedly said that the story of the film belongs to Lokesh Kanagaraj and added that he will answer to the accusation if the notice reaches him. Now, on seeing the article with a title saying “Mini Atlee aana Lokesh Kanagaraj” (Lokesh Kanagaraj became a mini Atlee), Producer S.R Prabhu uploaded a tweet saying “It is cheap to degrade a filmmaker without knowing the full details of a case. Cheaper when it’s done by a news portal. Advice your admin, sir” in Tamil.

Now, director and actor Naveen slammed Polimer for making such title for their piece. “They have given you blue tick and all. You have degraded two prolific filmmakers. Ethics of journalism is depends on the authenticity of a news being published and the dignity of language that is being used. Your news have neither” Naveen said in his tweet.
