Alternate Versions

In the UK, the distributor was advised that the film as it stood would be classified 15 uncut by the BBFC. The distributor then opted to re-edit certain elements from the film in order to obtain a more audience friendly 12A classification. The cuts made removed several moments of strong, bloody violence (sight of a large blood splatter onto a window after Dr. Sethuraman is shot in the head, sight of Mani's friend being beaten heavily with a baton, sight of blood spurts as Mani is shot by Athreya, sight of Mani's arm being severed with a hatchet and all following shots of him falling and landing into the ground). Following these aforementioned changes the film was passed with a 12A rating on May 4th of that year for 'moderate violence and occasional bloody images'. See more »

Complete entertainer for all type of audience
7 May 2016 | by aruthrarutzSee all my reviews

Must watch film.... Everything is perfect in this movie. Being a science fiction film, it is also fun to watch. Watched it in the first day of release(first show too), the theater response was crazy! Positive reviews everywhere,movie is just awesome. It is filled with sentiments, humor and twists. There were twists and thrills till the very end! No single scene seemed boring. Songs are amazing and lovely too. Every scene gives you goosebumps. It is not like other south Indian films. Screenplay is extraordinary. Dialogues are unique. Don't guess any scenes while watching movie because the next scene will be entirely different from your guess! Villain character rocked with no cigar, alcohol or vulgar words. Best movie so far
