Popular movie reviewer “Blue Satta” Maaran, a popular Tamil movie reviewer branded the movie as a “mediocre” one and trolled the content by saying that some scene are baseless. “Lot of scenes doesn’t made sense in the film. For instance, the protagonist would beg people for money in Airport to catch a flight to meet his father who is in the deathbed. Do you people even know the salary of a pilot officer ?? Why you people are keeping such scenes just for the sake of it?” maaran asked the makers of “Soorarai Pottru” who also roasted the Abdul kalam scene that took place in the film.
