Alternate Versions

The version of the film which was screened theatrically in the UK and Ireland had some self-imposed cuts made by the distributors in advance of the film's release. These changes were made to remove stronger elements of violence (such as decapitations and sight of blood accompanying impacts with weapons) these were changes were presumably made to avoid receiving the countries '15' and '15A' ratings.

User Reviews

summer treat for Super star fans and I absolutely loved it :)
24 May 2014 | by srinat-1See all my reviews

Kochadaiiyaan will mark a shift way we perceive Indian cinema. I came up with an open mind to accept the film on whatever the graphic quality but it stunned me to the core. Good content and full of my thalaivar all the way thru. Absolutely loved it being a die hard fan of Super star. I know that graphic was not up to Hollywood standard and I don't want compare it at all. What are the positive outcomes in India cinema -- Kochadaiiyaan is a welcome change to all run of the mill stories. I strongly believe that in years to come we can see many more producers willing to invest in Indian animations films and technologies. Coming back to film -- its been ~4 years to see my thalaivar on screen and I want this movie to be all-thalaivar stunts, dialogues, and dance moves. I came out of the movie with full satisfaction and time well spent. I will watch this movie again, again ... just for my thalaivar. Not to forget the performance other lead actors everyone did an amazing job and hats off to the director "Soundarya Rajinikanth" and writer "K.S. Ravikumar"
