However, the film got huge support from the leaders of BJP party and group of people. Reviewing his previous film “Draupathy”, Vikatan accused the filmmaker for sprinkling poisonous seed among the audience. “Exposing the fake marriages and the corruption in Register office is something to be welcomed. But accusing a particular community for all such crimes is regressive and a poisonous preach.” the review of Vikatan said.


On seeing this post from Vikatan, Mohan G, director of the film immediately replied to it by saying that it is not the mark his film deserves. “This is their pain on seeing a man from my community getting success. This is just the beginning. Many creators from Vanniyar community will emerge hereafter. You keep lamenting about it. Thanks for your review” he said in his reply tweet.
