Arun Matheshwaran, director of the recently released “Rocky”, opened about the similarity between the climaxes of his film and “Kaithi” for the first time post release in a recent interview with Vikatan. The filmmaker said that he shot the climax of his film one year before the release of the Karthi-starrer and he is not bothered about the similarity as well. Arun also said that he talked about the climax of his film to many people prior release.
Debut director Arun Matheshwaran who has been committed to direct actor Dhanush’s one of next movies, in an interview with Cinema Vikatan, talked aboutbmany aspects of the film. “Rocky”, one of the most expected films among the film buffs, released recently in theatres across the state. The film which stars Vasanth Ravi and Bharathi Raja in the lead roles, released under the banner of “Rowdy Pictures” of Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan. The film is receiving rave reviews from the critics and the movie buffs with number of foot falls increasing day by day.
The plot of “Rocky” revolves around the vengeance that takes place between the protagonist named “Rocky” and his boss “Mani Maaran” with whom the former’s father worked as a henchman. The “A” certified revenge drama shows how extreme they both go to express their vengeance. With many praising “Rocky” for the technical aspects of the film, a number of fans “liked” the different kind of experience the film gave.
However, many fans and reviewers, including the review of “Vikatan”, opined that the film’s climax reminds the climax of “Kaithi” where the protagonist would kill the multiple number of villains by using a machine gun. In “Rocky”, the protagonist who plays as a weapon dealer, hides “Kazhugu” (machine gun) which was supposed to be exported and uses it in the climax to kill the “n” number of villains.

Reacting to the comparison, Arun said “We completed our entire film one year before they started their shoot. We censored it as well. I have narrated the story to many people and I don’t bother about the similarity as well. I don’t want to get into the details as well. We completed our film in 2018, one year before that film”.
