Trivia

The slum shown in this film is actually a set work done by the Ace Art Director T.Muthuraj done over 7.5 acres of land. And another interesting thing is that the over bridge shown behind the slum was actually built using the materials needed to build an exact original bridge- only thing being only a portion of the bridge was built and rest was filled up by CGI. And any trees found in the slum was actually brought and grown in the slum to give a realistic feel to the slum. Even the waste products and dumpings in the slum are real waste brought from a dumpyard to give the realistic feel. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the UK, the film was edited in order to obtain a 12A rating from the BBFC (British Film Censors). The company removed scenes featuring detail of strong violence and injury detail (stabbings, slash wounds, bloodied characters, heavier punches/blows and a shot of a large amount of blood as a character is struck with a wooden pole). A an uncut 15 rating was available without these changes. See more »

Amazing movie. This is one of the best movie of Sivakarthikeyan. The movie has a good message and a good story. Songs and BGM were excellent in the movie. Everybody acted very well in the movie but Robo Shankar can be used more. The movie was so interesting in the 1st half but as there was many talk portions in the 2nd half the movie slightly lagged but at climax the movie was excellent.
