The film is being criticized for it’s length and the unwanted establishment to the love portion. One of the character played by Vikram suffers from hallucination in the film and the audience are subjected to see the characters that the protagonist sees from his eyes. In an interrogation scene, the actor behaves like the characters he sees and Vikram was highly appreciated for the way he performed.
However, netizens came up with a claim that the scene was copies from a hollywood short film named “Insider” which was released 10 years ago.
Tagging the filmmaker, a social media user sarcastically said “someone stole your scene 10 years ago”

I think he has given credits to all movies and directors he has inspired or recreated scenes from in the movie credits.. For Cobra, he has given credits for some 6-7 movies in credits I think
