Goofs

Veerappan's wife (Muthulaxmi) said she doesn't know English in the beginning of the movie. But when Muthulaxmi confesses in front of her land lady Shreya played by Lisa Ray that she suspects her to be a spy working for the police, Shreya asks her amusingly "Are you serious?" and Muthulaxmi nods confirming a yes which doesn't go hand in hand with her statement of not knowing the language.

Very intriguing, exciting, and thrilling. RGV - just like the old days. RESPECT!
7 January 2016 | by patrikiranSee all my reviews

This is my first review on IMDb. The trailer was very intriguing, it made me go to the movie on a working day. At first, I thought as usual I will not get a chance to watch this movie in a cinema hall near my place. But, thankfully I didn't travel far to watch it. Two cinema- halls were showing "Killing Veerappan" here. All right, coming to the movie - The movie is incredibly made with proper cast, locations, background score, and DOP. The movie runtime showed covered the actual topic which the director (RGV) wanted to showcase - Operation Cocoon. Sandeep Bharadwaj looks exactly like the Veerappan, he's got a striking resemblance. Overall, the movie is really appreciable. I don't want to judge the movie with all the research I did regarding Veerappan, Muthulakshmi, Operation Cocoon, and Sandalwood smuggling.
