However after watching a screening of the movie at a theatre in Chennai, BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan chose to play it safe.

She did not oppose the movie. She said that there is a lot of social message in it.

"It is not nice to compare a movie with politics. This will only lead to unnecessary problems. We have to see a movie only as entertainment," she said. Similarly, BJP spokes person Karu Nagaraj said,".

There is no direct mention of BJP or Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the movie. All these hype is a figment of one's imagination. Even if something like that was present in the movie, then it will be director Ranjith who should be questioned," he said.

The movie talks about a gangster from Tirunelveli who fights to keep the land safe from mighty politicians and the land mafia. Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Manikandan, Samuthirakani, Eswari Rao, Dileepan, Anjali Patil, Sayaji Shinde, Pankaj Tripathi are also part of the cast.
