Trivia

Telugu dubbed version was titled Vikramasimha while other languages such as Hindi, Japanese, Spanish, Italian will also see their respective versions of Kochadaiyaan. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the film initially received an NC16 classification due to moments of stronger violence in the film. The distributors were unsatisfied with this rating and opted to re-edit the Tamil Version of the film in order to obtain the more commercially lucrative PG13 classification. These cuts removed two moments of violence; the depiction of a spear piercing through the head of a soldier and the beheading of a villain during a sword fight, where the decapitated head is seen falling on to the ground and rolling. It is also worth noting that these cuts were only implemented onto Tamil Versions of the film and that the Hindi dubbed Version was passed uncut theatrically with an NC16 rating for 'Some Violence'.

A True Epic!
23 May 2014 | by spruthvi35See all my reviews

Me having at least minimum knowledge about how tough & challenging it is to make a film like this one, I can surely call it an 'EPIC', proudly! As I borrow the words of Amitabh Bachchan , "100 years of Indain cinema will now be called as 'After Kochadaiyaan' and 'Before Kochadaiyaan'" are so really true. Yes, this movie really deserves a great applause, ignore about how or what the story is but the attempt and hard work that went into the making of this film deserves an applause. People who do not have any knowledge about 'Motion Capture' should watch this film in the way it is shown and shouldn't call it a cartoon or something. The only flaw about the film is that there are some disconnected scenes in both the halves and maybe that is due to editing errors. Apart form that, the Cinematography , Sound , VFX and the other tech departments did their best.Super Star Rajnikanth was at his best and his hard core fans will enjoy the 'Shiva Thandav' part. The other actors did justice to their characters. The biggest asset is the Music and BGM by A.R. Rahman which doesn't bore you at any point in the film. The narrative was at good pace.There weren't many 3D shots, just few here and there in action sequences. Go and watch the film with your family, you'll surely enjoy it.
