Captain G.R Gopinath, founder of Air Deccan, came up with a tweet after watching the film for the first time. He who said that the film was heavily fictionalised, appreciated Sudha Kongara, Suriya Sivakumar and Aparna Balamurali for pulling out such a project in an appropriate period which he describes as “times of gloom”.


He said that the makers captured the film outstandingly and didn’t dilute the essence of the story of his book. Captain said that he watched the film last night and couldn’t help himself laughing and crying on many family scenes that brought old memories to him. “Dramatised but true to the undying spirit of triumph of hope against struggles and tribulations of an entrepreneur with disadvantaged rural background over overwhelming odds.” he wrote in his tweet.

Captain seemed overwhelmed by the portrayal of his wife’s character in the film. “strong but soft , feisty and fearless” are words he used to describe the nature of his wife. He believed that his wife is an inspiration to the rural women who can be entrepreneurs in their own right.

Gopinath also appreciated Suriya for the way he carried the role of an obsessed entrepreneur. He didn’t miss to appreciate Sudha Kongara for counter balancing a male centric plot by portraying Aparna in an inpiring and heartwarming way. “Suriya was powerful and carried off the part of an entrepreneur obsessed to the point of madness that makes dreams come true. A timely and great uplifting story in these times of gloom. And kudos and big salute to Director Sudha , to have balanced very deftly a male centric story lead by Suriya by portraying a wife acted by Aparna who was a powerful counter balance in an inspiring and heartwarming way” his tweet read.
