“It is a big challenge to take a particular portion from a novel in order to make a script out of it. Karunas and Udhaya wanted to produce the film and I joined them. We felt that it would be nice if Samuthrakani plays the lead role. He came forward and everyone did their part sincerely to complete the film” Vetri Maaran said during his speech.
“We are trying to release the film directly on theatres for the first time. I could feel the release tensions now. We are aiming for theatrical release amidst the OTT culture only because of our passion towards the theatres. Dhanu sir is helping us in releasing the film in theatres as we don’t know much about it. I thank him for leading us” the filmmaker added.
He also thanked each and everyone who are associated with the project. After his speech, reporters questioned the writer of “Sangathalaivan” movie.

Writer Bharathi Nathan answered to him and many other reporters in a polite way.
Regarding the ending of the film, a reporter asked how a murder could act as a solution for another murder. Answering to him, the writer referred to an incident that took place in Keezhvenmani where a Gopalakrishna Naidu killed 44 working people and went free. “Communists are the one who gave him the appropriate punishment” said the writer.
Actor G. Marimuthu who is known for his role in “Pariyerum Perumaal”, got the mic from the writer and said that it is just a cinematic form. “Beyond everything, it is just a cinema.
